Punishment reduced for Italy trio
˳ʱ룺AC¡ͼ˹
Reggina joined the four clubs involved in the scandal
Italian football giants Juventus, Lazio and Fiorentina have had their penalties for involvement in the country's match-fixing scandal reduced.

Lazio had their penalty slashed from 11 points to three, Juventus' was reduced to nine from 17, while Fiorentina's deficit was cut from 19 to 15 points.

AC Milan failed in their bid to have their eight-point penalty from the start of the season reduced.

All four sides had already had their original penalties lowered.

Reggina, the only other club involved in the match-fixing scandal, are still awaiting a decision on their appeal.

The reductions in sentences were made by the Italian Olympic Committee, which is the highest level of the sports justice system in Italy.
