Cambiasso gets one-game ban
Inter Milan's Argentine midfielder Esteban Cambiasso on Monday escaped with a one match ban from Serie A officials for a nasty challenge on Juventus striker Sebastian Giovinco.
Cambiasso was sent off after lashing out at Giovinco late in the 2-1 defeat to the league leaders on Saturday, leaving the striker writhing on the ground in agony clutching his ankle.
Cambiasso saw red for the first time in a Serie A career stretching back 277 games, but went to the Juventus dressing room immediately after the game to apologise for his actions.
Despite expectations he would be suspended for several games, he will now only miss next week's visit of Atalanta.
Juventus defenders Giorgio Chiellini and Andrea Barzagli, meanwhile, were shown yellow cards in the same game and will miss next week's visit of Pescara.
Juve top Serie A with a nine-point lead on Napoli and 11 on AC Milan. Inter sit sixth, 21 points off the leading pace.
