Juve-Udinese under the snow

Tonight’s Juventus-Udinese showdown should go ahead as planned despite heavy snow, as the new Juventus Stadium prepares for a big test.

It’s first against third at 19.45 UK time, but the weather has not been kind to the Scudetto clash, as it is already snowing in Turin.

The official Bianconeri website confirmed the giant cover has been placed over the pitch to keep off the snow, while the field is heated from beneath by specially-constructed pipes.

The Juventus Stadium is also taking care of the fans’ safety by laying salt in the car park and anti-freeze on the walkways and stands.

“The intensity of the snowfall is being constantly monitored and at the moment the situation is under control,” confirmed the statement.
