Italy's football federation (FIGC)
will issue its verdicts on Friday on Juventus coach Antonio
Conte, defender Leonardo Bonucci and winger Simone Pepe over
charges of match-fixing, a FIGC spokesman said.
Conte, who led Juventus to the Serie A title last season, is
accused of failing to report match-fixing in two games in the
2010/11 season when he was coach of Siena, then in Serie B.
Italian media have reported widely that Conte will receive a
10-month ban, while his two players will be acquitted.
Bonucci and Pepe are accused of involvement in fixing a
Serie A game between Bari and Udinese in 2010, which ended 3-3.
Bonucci was playing for Bari and Pepe for Udinese.
If Conte is banned he will have two opportunities to appeal
against the verdict.
