It’s looking increasingly likely that the postponed Napoli-Juventus tie will now be played on Tuesday 29 November.
The game was scheduled to take place at the Stadio San Paolo on Sunday night, but was called off due to the heavy rain which made conditions around the stadium difficult.
It is being claimed that the Azzurri had suggested December 14 as a possible new date for the encounter, but Juve are keener for the rules to be respected.
In Italy, postponed matches should be played within 15 days of their original date if possible – or as soon as the first available free date is available after that period.
Napoli were hoping to face Juventus once the Champions League group phase had come to a conclusion.
