Coppa Italia Final delay

It is reported the decision on when to play the Coppa Italia Final Roma-Lazio will not be made until late next week.

The match was due to be on Sunday May 26 at 19.45 UK time at the Stadio Olimpico.

Over the last few days there have been several meetings between the clubs, the Lega Serie A, Italian Olympic Committee and local authorities to work out a plan.

The police and local prefecture do not want to allow an evening kick-off in the wake of recent crowd problems outside the Olimpico ahead of the Rome Derby.

There is also the issue of the local elections in Rome on Sunday May 26.

There are currently two options thought to be the favourites – Sunday May 26 at an earlier time or the evening of Monday May 27.
