thumbnail Hello,

The suspension against the Bianconeri has been postponed, pending further review...

During the match between Juventus and Inter at the Stadio Olimpico in Turin on April 18, the home fans allegedly shouted racist insults at Nerazzurri starlet Mario Balotelli. This eventually resulted in a one match home ban, meaning this weekend's fixture against Lecce would be played behind closed doors.

However, on Thursday evening, the Supreme Court of Sporting Justice of CONI released a statement that the decision on a suspension would be postponed and fans will be able to attend the match between Juventus and Lecce on Sunday afternoon, according to the Corriere dello Sport.

The release highlighted the complexity of the issue and explained the decision on whether the ban will stand or will be postponed until May 15.

Several players and coaches have weighed in on the subject in recent weeks, including the Juventus fans themselves. They claimed that the chants towards Balotelli were not of a racist nature and they were jeering him because his actions were 'provocative'.
