Gilardino ban reduced to one-game after appeal

Alberto Gilardino's two-match Champions League suspension has been reduced to one game by UEFA following an appeal by his club Fiorentina.

The Italy international was dismissed for going into a challenge with Jeremy Toulalan with his elbow raised during last month's 1-0 defeat at Lyon.

A statement from Fiorentina read: ''Alberto Gilardino's European ban has been reduced to one game and the player will return to play at Debrecen on October 20.''

Gilardino, who has already served the one-match ban in last week's clash against Liverpool, will be available for the meeting in Hungary against Debrecen on October 20. Fiorentina lie second in Group E, level on three points with Liverpool.
