Juventus are hoping that their decision to drop the threat of going through the civil courts to appeal against the punishment meted out for their part in the Italian match-fixing scandal, will be rewarded with a reduction in their sanction.
The Italian Olympic Committee tribunal meets on Wednesday to discuss the final appeal by Juventus and the four other clubs implicated in the scandal.
Juventus, who were stripped of their last two Serie A titles and were demoted to Serie B with a 17-point deduction.
“We are waiting and we expect them to see our point of view,” Riccardo Montanaro, one of Juve’s lawyers, told the news agency ANSA.
Juventus were the only team of the five involved in the affair to be relegated from the top flight and they are hoping to see a reduction in their points deficit as a result of the appeal.
Antonio Matarrese, president of the Italian Football League said he expected turmoil whatever the judgment of the tribunal.
“However it goes there is going to be a row and I expect turbulence,” he said.
