Another turn around. On 19 June Atalanta, symbol of Bergamo, the city most affected by the virus, was supposed to inaugurate the restart of the championship by hosting Sassuolo, the last team to have played together with Brescia before the forced stop. Instead, it appears, as reported by the Gazzetta dello Sport, that the hypothesis has been discarded. The reasons for this decision are still unclear.
Toro, here’s Freddi Greco: from scoring in the Primavera derby to promotion under Longo’s orders
TORINO – So, the championship would slide again, even if only slightly: Yes, because according to gazzetta.it, Torino could be the one who played the opening match. Longo’s men would take the field on June 20. In any case, there is currently no official communication: it will arrive in the next few days, when the date and time of Turin’s first commitment will be known with precision.

ITALY CUP – The returns of the semifinals (Juventus-Milan and Napoli-Inter) should be played between 13 and 14 June, or at least this seemed to be the intent. However, it seems that the hypothesis of asking the Government for the possibility of anticipating the two semifinals by a few days is taking hold. Assembly and League Council have now ended: for sure there is only that the Cup final will be played on June 17 in Rome.
Below is the press release that the Serie A League issued in the evening:
“The Assembly of the Serie A League met today in the presence of all 20 associated companies in video conference. The clubs welcomed the green light to the resumption of the Serie A TIM communicated yesterday by Minister Spadafora and unanimously voted on the dispute of the 4 recoveries of the sixth day of return (Atalanta – Sassuolo, Hellas Verona – Cagliari, Inter – Sampdoria and Turin – Parma) on the weekend of 20/21 June and the programming of the eighth day of return from Monday 22 June. Furthermore, accepting the wish of Minister Spadafora, the sporting activity of the 2019/2020 season will immediately resume with the Italian Cup, whose finals are scheduled for June 17th. Dates and times of the matches will be announced by the Serie A League in the coming days “.
