Relegation for Juventus, Lazio and Fiorentina

Leaked reports in the Italian press suggest that three of the four clubs caught up in the Italian match-fixing scandal will be relegated to Serie B later today. Juventus, Lazio and Fiorentina are expected to be demoted a division, with AC Milan staying in Serie A but banned from the Champions League for one season.

It is also rumoured that Juventus will also find themselves with a 15-point penalty at the start of the season, while Lazio and Fiorentina will be docked six points. An official announcement on the fate of the clubs is due after 6pm BST this evening. Let the transfers commence! [Via Football 365 and Gazetta]
