The football match fixing scandal in Italy that led to punishments for four major clubs seems to have fizzled out. Following an appeal by the clubs, Lazio and Fiorentina, who were demoted to Serie B, have now been reinstated in Serie A. Moreover, Juventus, who were stripped off two titles, have been demoted to the 2nd division, but their points penalty has been reduced from minus 30 to minus 17. While AC Milan, who were allowed to stay in the first division, have now been allowed to compete in the qualifying rounds of the Champions league.
