Parma's Couto facing lengthy ban

Parma veteran defender Fernando Couto is facing a long ban after thumping Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini in Wednesday night's defeat.

The fiery Portuguese stopper was dismissed for dissent in the dying stages in Turin and received a one-game ban.

However, he also threw a punch at Chiellini during first-half stoppage time, which went unseen by the referee but has been picked up on video by the Disciplinary Commission.
