Douglas Costa Suspended For Four Serie A Matches For Spitting

Douglas Costa has been suspended for four Serie A matches after spitting at Sassuolo’s Federico Di Francesco during Sunday’s game, the Italian league has announced.

The Juventus winger escaped with a booking for elbowing and head-butting Di Francesco but was sent off after cameras caught the 28-year-old him spitting at the same player in another altercation.

Juventus won the match 2-1 even with the dismissal of the Brazilian, who apologized for his behavior after the game in a statement.

Costa will miss league matches against Frosinone, Bologna, Napoli, and Udinese but is eligible to face Valencia in the Champions League later on Wednesday.
