Napoli’s Politano risks two-match ban after direct red card

Napoli will need to surge ahead with reduced force following the expulsion of their winger Matteo Politano during a centre-stage clash with Roma.

At the 66-minute-mark, whilst on a counter-attack, Politano was tactically brought down by Zalewski. This action clearly infuriated Politano, who reacted by kicking Zalewski in the side.

The immediate reaction led to a straight red card, leaving Napoli to play with ten men for the remainder of the match.

Suited with his red card, it’s potentially predicted that Politano might face at least two games suspension. The certainty of the ensuing penalty will be determined in accordance with the report by Colombo and the decision taken by the sports judge.
