Lazio defender Francesco Acerbi has been given a two-game suspension following his red card in the 3-0 loss to Bologna.
As announced in an official Lega Serie A statement yesterday, the 33-year-old Italian defender was given a red card in the match against the Rossoblu, first receiving a yellow card for a foul before receiving his marching orders following excessive protests at referee Davie Massa’s decision.
Below is the official justification given by Lega Serie A:
For protesting towards the match officials (first sanction); for having on 31st minute of the second half, at the moment of the booking, addressed insulting and offensive statements to the match official.
The player is currently a part of the Azzurri setup ahead of this evening’s UEFA Nations League semi-finals against Spain.
