CHANGED: 30-point deduction from their 2006-07 Serie B total REDUCED TO 17 POINTS.
UPHELD: Stripped of 2004-05 and 2005-06 Serie A titles.
UPHELD: Five-year bans for central figures of the scandal: former Juventus executives Luciano Moggi and Antonio Giraudo.

FIORENTINA
CHANGED: MAINTAIN SERIE A STATUS, instead of being relegated to Serie B for
2006-07 season. DEDUCTED 19 POINTS, instead of 12 points from initial Serie B sentence.

LAZIO
CHANGED: MAINTAIN SERIE A STATUS, instead of being delegated to Serie B for
2006-07 season. DEDUCTED 11 POINTS, instead of 7 points from initial Serie B sentence.

AC MILAN
CHANGED: DEDUCTED 8 points from their 2006-07 Serie A total, instead of 15.
CHANGED: ALLOWED TO ENTER CHAMPIONS LEAGUE PRELIMINARY ROUNDS (subject to UEFA approval) instead of banned from 2006-07 Champions League.

Juventus, Lazio and Fiorentina have indicated they will continue to fight against the sanctions through Italy's civil courts, which could delay the start of the season scheduled for Aug. 28.
