Serie A: Lazio-Torino not postponed

The Lega Serie A has reportedly decided to not postpone the match between Lazio and Torino today, but the Granata haven’t travelled.

After the League Council were called in to urgently discuss the COVID-19 protocol, the decision for today’s match between Lazio and Torino has arrived.

News agency ANSA reports the League has decided that the match must be played today, thus closing the hypothesis of postponing the match.

But Torino have been blocked by the local health authorities and couldn’t travel to the Italian capital.

The Granata will be subjected to new coronavirus tests today, with eight players positive in the squad, and hope no further cases have emerged in the team group to not risk having to postpone the match against Crotone on Sunday.

The Biancocelesti have called up a squad to face Torino tonight, but will be on their own at the Olimpico and can start preparing for the big game against Juventus this weekend.

Napoli and Juventus have a similar incident back in October last year, when the Partenopei were blocked by the local health authorities and initially docked one point and handed a 3-0 defeat by default, but later won the appeal to revoke the sentence and reschedule the game.
