The health situation is not improving in Italy. The Torino, Bologna and Udinese teams are still stranded in their region, isolated due to a large cluster present in their workforce. Three matches initially scheduled for this 21st day of Serie A risk being once again postponed, as was the case on Thursday with four matches for the 20th day.
Nevertheless, Salernitana, who announced a new player positive for Covid-19 this Friday morning, is expected to face Hellas Verona this weekend when he was banned from playing against Venice on Thursday. The isolation of contact cases ends on Saturday, and with the new protocol, Franck Ribery’s team should be able to play on Sunday if it has 13 players available in its workforce supplemented by the young people of the club.
The standoff continues in Italy between Italian football institutions and local health agencies, at a time when many Calcio players such as Inter sports director Giuseppe Marotta or Torino Urbano Cairo president are taking the front line to modify the sanitary protocol.
