Sampdoria-Roma given go-ahead

The local authorities have given the all-clear for this afternoon’s game between Sampdoria and Roma to go ahead amid weather warnings.

It kicks off at 14.00 UK time (13.00 GMT), click here for a match preview.

There were genuine concerns up until this morning that the encounter could be postponed, as there has been heavy rainfall for days in the Liguria region.

More storms were expected today, but the situation seems to have calmed and the latest rain has hit Savona rather than Genoa.

An Orange Alert remains in the city, because more rain is expected in the late afternoon, but it will not be raised to Red Alert.

The days of heavy rain have left the ground saturated, which means there is a much higher risk of flash floods, situations that have proved deadly in this city in recent years.
