All the games for the next month will be played without fans, the game against Genoa will most likely be played on Sunday at 12:30 CET.

The Coronavirus outbreak has become very serious in Italy as over 3000 positive cases have been recorded, with 107 deaths since the virus arrived in Italy.

As of a result of the terrible issue, a Government decree was published this evening, ruling that all sporting events in the next month (until April 3) will be held behind closed doors, with the exception of ‘red areas’ where they will be no sporting events.

A Lega Serie A assembly will be necessary to establish the times for the matches that have been postponed. The rumours are that the upcoming weekend will feature the six Matchdays that were not played in Matchday 26, so Milan-Genoa could be played on Sunday at 12:30 CET.

It also remains to be seen when the Coppa Italia semi-final between Milan and Juventus, that was supposed to take place tonight, will happen. Finding a new date may be rather difficult.
