Torino lose Padova appeal

In a bizarre turnaround, Padova’s appeal against a result awarded for floodlight failure has been accepted, so Torino have three points removed from their tally.

There has been chaos and controversy ever since the December 5 game was suspended with Padova 1-0 up due to floodlight failure.

As the home team and therefore responsible for the stadium, Torino successfully argued that Padova should pay for the suspension by handing a 3-0 victory to them.

However, today the Federal Court of Justice accepted Padova’s appeal against that decision, so the original 1-0 result has been restored.

It means Torino go from 70 points to 67, while Padova rise to 59 and are right back in the promotion chase.
