Serie A will not postpone matches, despite high number of positives

Everything is still standing in the Italian league so that the matches that are scheduled for January 6 take place, despite the high rates of covid infections

The Serie A matches scheduled for tomorrow will not be postponed despite the high number of players who have tested positive in recent days, around a hundred, and the request launched in that sense by Salernitana, in quarantine after communicating 11 infected in the club.

The current regulation does not foresee the possibility of postponement with a ceiling of available players, as in the current championship, so the schedule for the return day of the Christmas break will be played without changes, sources from the League indicated, quoted by the media local.

Therefore, the Salernitana-Venezia matches the Spezia-Verona and the Fiorentina-Udinese will be played, although the transfer of the teams could be blocked by the health authorities, if they are forced to quarantine due to outbreaks of infection, as has happened with the team. from Salerno (south).

With 11 positives, 9 of them from players, the team and the technical team were put into isolation, which led the club to ask that their match with Venice be postponed. and tomorrow he could have to play with the juveniles, depending on the decision of the local health authorities, who have the last word.

In a similar situation are Verona, which has announced 10 positives, 8 of them players, and Udinese, with 9, of which 7 footballers, although when playing as visitors they could be penalized with administrative defeats if they do not appear.

There are also doubts about Juventus-Naples, a match that already had to be postponed by the covid in October 2020, when the Neapolitan team was sanctioned with a 3-0 administrative defeat and a penalty point for not attending the match.

Now the Neapolitan club, with 3 players who have tested positive, assesses whether to travel to the scheduled meeting tomorrow in Turin (north), whose health authorities assure that there is no problem, while the Neapolitan women analyze the situation to see whether or not they authorize the transfer .
