One-match ban for Cambiasso after Giovinco foul

Inter coach Andrea Stramaccioni will have to make do without the services of Esteban Cambiasso in the upcoming Serie A match against Sampdoria, as the midfielder has been handed a one-match ban following his dismissal against Juventus at the weekend.

The Argentine midfielder was shown a straight red card in the closing stages of Saturday's 2-1 loss after a reckless tackle on Sebastian Giovinco, and has now been suspended for one Serie A game as a result.

The Nerazzurri initially feared that Cambiasso would be handed a severe ban following his late lunge on the Italian, but the 32-year-old will miss just the one game versus Sampdoria.

Cambiasso entered the Juventus dressing room immediately after the final whistle to apologies to Giovinco and inquire after his injury.

The attacker missed Sunday morning's training session as a result of the tackle, but has been included in Juventus' match squad for the Champions League game against Bayern Munich.
