Serie A: Six matches set to be played behind closed doors after coronavirus scare

Italy’s Minister of Sports Vincenzo Spadafora has confirmed that a few matches of Serie A Week 26 which are set to be played in areas affected by the coronavirus will be held behind closed doors.

These matches include the blockbuster between Juventus and Inter Milan which was set to be played on Sunday.

“Measures are already in force, that prohibit any events until next Sunday,” Spadafora told Tg2. 

“Initially for Lombardy, Veneto, and Piedmont. Now we have also extended to Friuli Venezia Giulia, Emilia Romagna and Liguria.

“In these regions, the prohibition of sporting events remains, for some events we have given the availability to carry them out behind closed doors.”
