Juventus and Lazio have still not decided where to play the Italian Super Cup, though Toronto seems to be taking the lead.
The match traditionally opens the season and is between the Scudetto winners and Coppa Italia holders.
It was due to be played in Beijing on August 15, but Juve argue they cannot manage that date because they have organised a US summer tour.
The Bianconeri suggested moving it to Turin, which was turned down point-blank by Lazio, so Toronto is emerging as the favourite venue for August 10.
There are still problems, according to the Corriere dello Sport, as Toronto’s organisers are offering approximately half the money that would be guaranteed by playing in China.
Another alternative would be playing at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome – Lazio’s home arena – on August 18.
