Three weekend Serie A kick-offs moved

The Lega Serie A has moved Roma-Inter, Milan-Napoli and Cesena-Catania this weekend to 3pm Italian time in a bid to avoid losing them to the weather.

The three fixtures were originally all scheduled as Week 22’s evening kick-offs but will now all be played in the middle of the afternoon. Cesena-Catania and Roma-Inter will still both be played on Saturday, whilst Milan-Napoli will happen on Sunday afternoon as part of the main block of weekend games.

President Maurizio Beretta has taken the action to move the three fixtures having seen the midweek round of games hit by four postponements as heavy snow and freezing conditions took hold of the country.

Adriano Galliani had earlier requested that Milan’s home fixture with Napoli be rearranged due to the potentially dangerously low temperatures that fans will have had to watch it in at the original time of 8.45pm local time.
