The sports tribunal revised the standings from last season, relegating Juventus and deducting AC Milan 44 points, leaving Milan's cross-town rival, Internazionale, at the top of the Serie A for the 2005-06 campaign. It was initially proposed that last season's Scudetto be declared void in the wake of the massive scandal which involved four top Serie A clubs.
