Juventus coach Antonio Conte's match-fixing ban has been reduced from 10 months to four.
Italy's sports arbitration court ruled that Conte can return on December 8 instead of next June.
The ban stems from two seasons ago, when Conte coached Siena in Serie B.
The reduction came after the panel concluded that Conte did not keep forward Salvatore Mastronunzio out of Siena's squad because he refused to take part in fixing, as had been suggested.
Conte remains guilty of failing to report fixing in a match between Siena and Albinoleffe in the 2010-11 season.
FIFA extended the ban worldwide last month.
After six rounds of the season, Juventus is tied for the Serie A lead with Napoli.
Sampdoria completed a double over Serie A champion Juventus with a 3-2 win at a rainswept Stadio Luigi Ferraris - to end the season in 14th place.
