Serie A: Juventus Striker, Morata To Miss Turin Derby vs Torino After Match Ban

Serie A: Juventus Striker, Morata To Miss Turin Derby vs Tor

Juventus striker, Alvaro Morata has been handed a 2 Serie A match ban following his red card in Juventus' 1-1 draw against Benevento at the weekend and will miss the Turin derby against Torino.

AllNews understands that former Chelsea and Real Madrid player was disciplined for "a disrespectful expression addressed towards the referee" during the match.

Morata scored the game's first goal in the 21st minute but saw red after the full-time whistle for dissent after aggressively appealing for a penalty.

Cristiano Ronaldo was rested in Saturday's draw against their newly-promoted opponents as champions Juve were held to their fifth draw in nine league matches.

Morata has scored eight goals in all competitions this season, with Ronaldo on nine.

The Spaniard will miss Juventus' home derby against city rivals Torino on Saturday, and the trip to Genoa the following weekend.

He will, however, play in Wednesday's Champions League game against Dynamo Kyiv in Turin.

"Alvaro Morata will probably play, while (Paulo) Dybala will prepare for the Turin Derby," coach Andrea Pirlo said on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old has scored five Champions League goals this season in four games.
