MILAN, Aug 24 (Reuters) Juventus have lodged an appeal with a civil court to overturn their relegation for match fixing despite a threat of extra sanctions from Italy's football federation, a spokesman for the soccer club said today.

A soccer tribunal ruling on the match-fixing scandal in July stripped Juve of their last two Italian titles and demoted them to the second division, where they will start the new season minus 17 points.

The Italian football federation (FIGC) has said it would impose extra sanctions on Juventus if they turned to the regional Lazio court, as the Turin club has now done.
