Rome:

Juventus coach Antonio Conte is being questioned again by the Italian football federation prosecutor over another match-fixing case.

Having already been suspended four months at the start of this season for failing to report fixing when he coached Siena two years ago, Conte faces a possible similar charge stemming from when he managed Bari in 2008 and 2009.

Court officials have been investigating Bari's matches with Treviso and Salernitana in May 2008 and May 2009, respectively. With little to gain, Bari lost both games, having already secured a mid-table finish in 2008 and the Serie B title in 2009.

Conte, on course to guide Juventus to a second consecutive Serie A title, was accompanied by three lawyers for the meeting with FIGC prosecutor Stefano Palazzi.

Conte denies wrongdoing.
