Lega Serie A are considering rescheduling the most recent postponed round of games in a way that re-aligns the season, it is claimed.
Serie A has been hit by chaos over the past week as coronavirus continues to spread throughout Italy and particularly Lombardy, the region of which Milan is a capital.
Five games over the weekend – including Milan’s game against Genoa at San Siro scheduled for Sunday lunchtime – were officially postponed by the league in light of the outbreak, while the Rossoneri’s clash with Juventus in the Coppa Italia semi-final second leg on Wednesday was also called off.
Speaking from the CONI headquarters, Sky journalist Riccardo Gentile (via MilanNews) revealed that the decision is likely to be one that sees Milan play Genoa this weekend on Saturday or Sunday.
It remains to be seen what that means regarding Monday’s planned game away against Lecce, but it is feasible that the entire schedule is pushed back by one week to realign. The games will, in all probability, be held behind closed doors, Gentile adds.
