Atalanta appeal Ilicic ban
Atalanta will appeal against the two game ban handed out to Josip Ilicic after his red card against Empoli.
The Slovenian playmaker was sent off in the 3-2 defeat, and earned an extra game ban for insulting the referee.
That will see him miss Napoli at home and Udinese away, but Sky reports that the Orobici will appeal.
While there is no hope of getting the ban overturned, it’s hoped the Corte Sportiva d’Appello Nazionale will reduce the punishment to one game.
That would mean Ilicic would be available to face the Zebrette, though he won’t be able to play this weekend.
