Novara-Roma to go ahead despite rain

According to the latest reports, Novara-Roma will go ahead tonight despite thunderstorms and flooding in the area.

This weekend Genoa-Inter has already been called off due to the freak storms that have hit northern Italy, causing at least six deaths, including two children.

The rain continues to fall on Liguria and Piemonte, so there are floods in the Novara area.

However, the latest reports from Novara state the Stadio Silvio Piola is able to host the game at 19.45 UK time this evening.

It has one of only two synthetic pitches in Serie A and the drainage system has worked perfectly, meaning there are very few puddles.
