MILAN – Napoli have appealed their 3-0 loss to Juventus The game in Serie A is postponed and the penalty point is canceled

Napoli had declined previous appeals and referred the matter to the Italian Olympic Committee, which ruled in favor of the club on Tuesday

The ruling meant Napoli moved up from fifth to third while Juventus slipped to fourth after losing the three points they received Both teams have the same number of points and goal difference, but Napoli scored one more goal

The first deciding factor if the teams are tied at the end of the season is head-to-head, then goal difference, then goals scored

Napoli received a 3-0 defeat and a 1-point penalty for not showing up at Juventus in October 4 due to coronavirus cases

Last month, the FIGC appeals court upheld the league’s decision that Napoli had no valid reason for missing the game and should have followed the existing COVID-19 protocol accepted by all pre-season clubs

The protocol of the Italian league for coronavirus cases complies with UEFA rules.If there are 13 players available in a team, including at least one goalkeeper, the game can continue

Napoli only had two players at the time who rated COVID-19 positively but argued it had been ordered not to travel by the local health authority
