    The Lega Serie A has announced that the game at San Siro will not be held, due to the Coronavirus spreading in Milano.

    On the eve of the game between Milan and Genoa at Stadio San Siro, the Lega Serie A has announced that it has changed its original decision and that the game will be postponed to a later date.

    The original decision, taken on Thursday, was to play the game behind closed doors. However, the league has communicated to the clubs and fans this afternoon that the game will not be played at all.

    The encounter between the Rossoneri and the Grifone, which was postponed last season as well, will be held on Wednesday, May13. In addition to Milan-Genoa, also Juventus-Inter, Parma-SPAL, Sassuolo-Brescia and Udinese-Fiorentina will not be played this weekend.

    The decision is course due to the spread of the Coronavirus, which has taken lives in Italy. The Coppa Italia final, which Milan could play if they get past Juve, has been postponed to May 20.
