Serie A to resume from Week 25?

The Lega Serie A is meeting today to discuss how to resume the season and it’s very likely they’ll play the remaining Week 25 fixtures on June 13-14.

When the campaign was interrupted in mid-March, some Week 25 games were called off due to the coronavirus pandemic, which at the time was largely localised in the northern regions.

Therefore, Atalanta-Sassuolo, Verona-Cagliari, Inter-Sampdoria and Torino-Parma were postponed.

The fixture list got back on track with all of Week 26 played, albeit some of them behind closed doors.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the plan to resume the Serie A fixtures will try to create as much balance as possible by recovering those fixtures first, on the weekend of June 13-14.

It’ll then allow the full season to get back on track for the weekend of June 20 with all the teams having played 26 matches.

That would also fit in with the general call to restart the season closer to June 20 than 13, allowing for just four games in the earlier weekend as almost a test-run.

A decision will be made on the dates for the season when the FIGC and Lega Serie A meet with the Minister for Sport Vincenzo Spadafora on Thursday.
