Verona-Genoa delayed by wonky lines

In a bizarre turn of events, Verona v Genoa will be delayed by 15 minutes because the lines on the pitch are wonky.

It was due to kick off at 17.00 GMT, but has now been moved to 17.15 GMT.

This is because the Stadio Bentegodi failed a pitch inspection with the referee, who saw the lines on the pitch were visibly not straight, particularly the edges of the two penalty areas.

It is an unusual reason, particularly for the start of 2020 in one of Europe’s top five leagues.

Good riddance, Chievo

The Flying Donkeys once won hearts as plucky underdogs, but Emmet Gates saw them become the epitome of mid-table mediocrity and a Serie A eyesore.

There was once a time in which Chievo conquered the heart and minds of football fans.

Chievo-Juventus at risk?

The early kick-off between Chievo and Juventus could be at risk, as there’s heavy fog in Verona.

Defending champions Juventus look to win their 12th Serie A match in a row at Stadio Bentegodi this morning, but the weather may call a halt to proceedings.

The stadium is shrouded in fog, and Sky reports that the match could be called-off due to poor visibility.

The match kicks-off at 11.30 GMT, so updates are expected in the next half hour.
