Mario Balotelli: Three-match ban

The former Manchester City striker had an eventful match. He missed a penalty, scored late in the game and was shown a second yellow card after the final whistle for arguing with match officials.

In addition to the automatic one-match ban, he was given an additional two games for "directing insulting and intimidating expressions to the referee at the time of the sending-off," said the Italian league in a statement.

AC Milan were also ordered to partially close the San Siro stadium for their next home game because of insulting chants by their fans aimed at Napoli supporters.

The disciplinary tribunals said the chanting "expressed discrimination based on their territorial origin."
