There are reports Genoa-Napoli will be called off due to flood warnings, as the city is in lockdown over an approaching storm linked to Hurricane Sandy.
The match is due to kick off at 14.00 GMT on Sunday, but the Mayor of Genoa Marco Doria has ordered a lockdown and partial evacuation up until 11.00 GMT tomorrow.
All schools, museums, parks, graveyards, underpasses and sporting structures will be closed, as this storm is thought to be a knock-on effect from the Sandy ‘superstorm’ that devastated America’s east coast.
Genoa is particularly concerned, as the city was struck by disastrous flooding a year ago that swept mud, water and debris including cars throughout the streets.
Extremely heavy rain is also expected on the Emilia-Romagna region from Sunday afternoon until Monday evening.
