Serie A: Genoa-Torino postponed

The scheduled match between Genoa and Torino on Saturday, October 3, has been postponed due to the 14 cases of COVID-19 at the Grifoni.

The Rossoblu returned from a 6-0 defeat to Napoli in Serie A last weekend and have since confirmed 14 cases of coronavirus in the matchday group.

Genoa were supposed to host the Granata at the Marassi at 17.00 UK time on Saturday, but Serie A has confirmed the match is postponed.

The Extraordinary Council of the Lega Serie A has confirmed the application of the UEFA rules in the Italian League.

If a team have 13 players available, including a goalkeeper, the match should go as planned. If a team still can’t participate, they will suffer a 3-0 defeat by default.

The clubs are allowed to ask for one postponement without being handed a defeat, if they have at least 10 positive cases in the same week.
