Inter's Cambiasso hit with one-match ban

Milan, Italy (Sports Network) - Inter Milan midfielder Esteban Cambiasso has been handed a one-match suspension for his late challenge on Sebastian Giovinco in Inter's 2-1 defeat against Juventus on Saturday.

Cambiasso was sent off in the closing moments of the match after a terrible challenge on Giovinco, resulting in the first red card of the Argentina international's career.

But despite the ugly nature of the challenge, the Lega Calcio has confirmed that Cambiasso will only serve a one-match ban, which will rule him out of Wednesday's clash at Sampdoria.

The 32-year-old has appeared in 27 of Inter's 30 Serie A games this campaign.
