ROME (AP) – Newly promoted Sampdoria will start its first season back in Serie A with a one-point penalty for match-fixing after its plea bargain was accepted on Friday.
The Italian Football Federation's disciplinary committee accepted all of the deals agreed with prosecutor Stefano Palazzi, including the club's ?30,000 ($37,000) fine.
Serie B club Bari has been deducted five points and fined ?80,000 ($98,000). Atalanta defender Andrea Masiello has been banned for 26 months for offences during his time at Bari.
Former teammates Alessandro Parisi, who is now with Torino, and Marco Rossi, now at Cesena, have been suspended for 24 months and 20 months, respectively.
Meanwhile, Juventus - already uncertain about the future of coach Antonio Conte - may also have players Leonardo Bonucci and Simone Pepe suspended.
Palazzi asked for a 38-month ban for Bonucci and a 12-month ban for Pepe for their roles in fixing the Udinese vs. Bari match in May 2010. Bonucci played for Bari at the time, while Pepe played for Udinese.
On Thursday, Palazzi recommended a 15-month ban for Conte for failing to report match-fixing in two games during the 2010-11 season when he was coach of then-Serie B team Siena.
Bologna is facing the possibility of starting next season with a two-point deduction, with defender Daniele Portanova facing a three-year suspension.
