In a dramatic turn of events, the highest sport court in Italy has overturned the 15 points deduction that was previously imposed on Juventus.
The 15 points deduction was initially handed down after allegations arose that the club had artificially inflated transfer fees to boost their capital gain.
The accusations were vehemently denied by Juventus, who promptly launched an appeal in the hopes of having the points restored.
