Updating news from earlier this week, the Disciplinary Commission has completed it’s review of the incident in the Leon-Pachuca game between Diego Novaretti & Hirving Lozano. The Commission’s statement is as follows (translated to English):
“Player Diego Martin Novaretti was found to be in violation of Article 17-3 of the League Regulations (spitting on an opponent). Novaretti is suspended 6 games effective immediately and fined an undisclosed amount.”
That suspension means he is now out until at least round 8, so the earliest he can be back is for Leon’s 2/25 game at Atlas. No action was taken against Lozano.
