Juventus coach Paolo Montero has published his squad list for tonight’s Serie A match against Bologna, and Nicolò Fagioli is back in the squad after a seven-month ban.

Juventus midfielder Fagioli could make his first appearance tonight, returning to action after a seven-month ban from the game. Fagioli was suspended for 12 months on October 17, 2023, after admitting to gambling on soccer matches via illegal platforms and accepting a plea bargain, including therapy for gambling addiction. The original 12-month ban was commuted from five to seven with certain conditions, including attending treatment for gambling addiction for a minimum of six months. Fagioli has made six appearances this season, the last of which came on October 1 in a 0-0 draw with Atalanta in Bergamo. The 23-year-old continued to train with the rest of the team during his ban, and made a number of public appearances to raise awareness of the game and help others avoid a similar fate.
