Roma facing 3-0 forfeit after Diawara registration error in Serie A opener vs Hellas Verona

The two sides played out a goalless draw in the curtain-raiser to the 2020-21 season, but the result could be overturned

Roma could be forced to forfeit their opening game of the Serie A season after breaking registration rules.

Paulo Fonseca’s side drew 0-0 at Hellas Verona on Saturday, but the result could now be changed to a 3-0 defeat.

Guinea midfielder Amadou Diawara turned 23 in July but was mistakenly included in the under-22 section of the club’s 25-man squad for the season. Under-22 players don’t count towards the total of 25, meaning an extra player could be included in the squad.
