Mediaset: Two play-off options emerge to end Serie A season – what it means for Milan

By Oliver Fisher -

The 2019-2020 season could end with the a play-off style system, a report claims, which is not preferable to Federal President Gravina but could end up being the most practical option.

According to SportMediaset (via MilanLive), there are two possible systems on the table if that becomes a possibility.

The first hypothesis is a divided play-off system, in which there would be one set for the Scudetto – in which the top four of the current standings would participate (Juventus, Lazio, Inter and Atalanta) – a set for the Europa League (including Milan) and the bottom six in a relegation play-off (Brescia, SPAL, Lecce, Genoa, Sampdoria and Torino).

The second option instead uses a sort of grid system based on the current standings. Teams currently between 13th and 20th would fight not to get relegated, then there would be a Coppa Italia style system for the rest of the teams, with the top four entering from the final 8 onwards.
