The Juventus vs Inter match was scheduled to take place on 1st March. But due to the fear of a possible outbreak of Coronavirus, Serie A had postponed the match.
Serie A had initially ordered the 5 matches to be played behind closed doors on the weekend. But then postponed them till the end of the season. All the matches were to be played on 13th May in order to “contain and manage the epidemiological emergency that is COVID-19.”
But the postponed fixtures were creating an issue, so Serie A has changed the date again. They confirmed that every fixture between now and the end of the season will be moved back one week. The Juventus vs Inter match which was scheduled to take place last weekend will now be played on 8th March.
It was confirmed on Friday that five of the matches are to take place on 8th March. Milan will play against Genoa at 15:00 local time (14:00 GMT), while Juventus will play against Inter at 20:45 local time (19:45 GMT).
Every clubs’ fixture has now been moved by seven days. So 13th May will be the final day of this season.
Another thing has also been decided that all the games will be played behind closed doors following a government decree that said sporting events are to be played without fans present until 3rd April.
Serie A title holders Juventus are second in the table. They are two points behind league leaders Lazio, who have played a game more. Inter are six points behind Juventus, although they have played two games less than Lazio.
This Serie A season isn’t about how quickly Juventus can wrap up the title. It has been an intense title race which is good for Italian football.
