Juventus have been docked 10 points following a new hearing into the club's past transfer dealings. Juve were initially handed a 15-point penalty in January but Italy's highest sporting court overturned that decision in April and ordered the case to be re-examined. The new ruling was announced on Monday (May 22), before the team's 4-1 defeat at Empoli. The penalty drops Juve to seventh place in Serie A, outside the European qualification spots.
Napoli have already secured the Serie A title and, before Monday's ruling, were 17 points ahead of second-placed Juve.
"It was a strange situation, 10 minutes before the match the sentence came out," said Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri.
