Cagliari-Juventus could be moved

Week 37’s fixture between Cagliari and Juventus could be moved to a Sunday evening kick-off so as to be played at the same time as Inter-Milan.

Locked in a tight battle for Lo Scudetto, the two clubs are understood to prefer to play at the same time as each other so as to ‘remove any extra pressure on the match officials’ and to maintain the Rossoneri’s motivation for their derby.

Should both teams win their Week 36 tests this midweek, then Juve could mathematically wrap up the title with a win against Cagliari, which if played before the Milan derby, could render that game a nothing encounter for the red half of the city, something that the likes of Udinese, Lazio and Napoli would be keen to avoid for opponents Inter.

This is according to Sky Sport Italia, who say that a meeting held between Rossonero Vice President Adriano Galliani and Bianconero director general Beppe Marotta has the clubs in agreement on moving the fixture. A final decision on moving the game will be down to the Lega Calcio.
