Serie A giants Juventus had a 15-point penalty suspended on Thursday, bringing them up to third in the standings.
Following a three-hour hearing the previous day, the case has now been referred back to the soccer federation’s appeals court and Juventus has been handed back the points pending the new trial.
The Italian team received this penalty in January for false accounting. Juventus denied wrongdoing and appealed to Italy’s highest sports court within the Italian Olympic Committee, known as CONI.
Several suspensions were upheld, including for Agnelli and Tottenham director Fabio Paratici.
The new investigation may involve Juventus and Napoli, Sampdoria, Genoa, Empoli, Parma, Pisa, Pescara, Novara, Chievo, and Pro Vercelli, who were all mentioned in the capital gains case.
As things currently stand Juventus will qualify for the UEFA Champions League in the following season.
