Udinese confirmed they could request the Serie A Week 1 game with Lazio be postponed to Monday August 26.
The fixture list was only drawn up on Monday, but the opening weekend remains shrouded in uncertainty.
The Lega Serie A confirmed Verona-Milan and Sampdoria-Juventus are on Saturday August 24, although the kick-offs could be reversed if the Rossoneri’s Champions League play-off first leg is away from home.
Inter-Genoa is the later Sunday kick-off at 17.00 UK time.
Lazio-Udinese is therefore set for 14.00 UK time on Sunday August 25, but the Friulani warned today they could request a change to Monday.
“There is that possibility, but we’ll reserve the decision until we are certain that we’re through to the Europa League play-off,” director Cristiano Giaretta told Udinese Blog.
“In that case, we will ask for the game with Lazio to be postponed until Monday.”
It’s believed the request to move will only be made if the Europa League tie on August 22 is played away from home.
