Failed breathalyser test costs Matuzalém place in Genoa squad to face Juventus
Midfielder Matuzalém will not be selected by manager Gian Piero Gasperini for Genoa’s tie with Juventus on Sunday.
The 33 year-old failed a breathalyser test earlier this week, reports Football Italia.
As a punishment, Gasperini’s withdrawn Matuzalém from his match day squad. It is unclear whether he will be selected for Wednesday’s fixture at home to Parma.
Matuzalém has started just once - a 1-1 draw with Catania - since Gasperini returned to Genoa in September. Overall, he has made five appearances this season.
