Italy's most successful soccer club Juventus were relegated to the second division Sera B along with former champions Fiorentina and Lazio. The move came after a sports tribunal on Friday found the club guilty of offences in a match-fixing trial. Bringing to a head the biggest scandal in European soccer for decades, the tribunal also ruled that AC Milan, although they will stay in Serie A, would have their points from last season reduced by 44 points, ruling them out of next season's Champions League. Juventus were stripped of their last two title wins from 2006 and 2005. Angry Juventus fans gathered in front of the club's headquarters in Turin while Fiorentina fans and Lazio supporters made their feelings known in other parts of Italy.
