Juventus midfielder Milos Krasic will miss Saturday's Serie A trip to Milan after being banned for two matches for diving during Sunday's draw at Bologna.

The league said that, upon reviewing video evidence, it was clear there had been no contact with Bologna's Daniele Portanova. "The referee made an error because of a dive by the Juventus player," a statement said.

The Italian Football Federation has used video evidence after matches to ban divers in the past and has been at the forefront of calls for Fifa to make use of technology while games take place.
