Rome:

Juventus assistant coach Angelo Alessio has had his match-fixing ban reduced from six to two months.

Following the decision by Italy's sports arbitration court, Alessio can return next week for the highly awaited match against Serie A co-leader Napoli.

Alessio was originally banned for eight months, then the sentence was reduced to six months on appeal.

Last week, Juventus head coach Antonio Conte had his ban reduced from 10 to four months.

The bans stem from wrongdoing when the pair were at Siena two years ago.

Another assistant, Massimo Carrera, has been filling in for Conte.
