22.02 – Calcagno: “We all hope that the quarantine can be reduced” – Umberto Calcagno, vice-president of the Italian Football Association, spoke to TMW Radio’s microphones about the team quarantine that risks paralyzing Serie A: “Gravina himself awaits results from the Technical-Scientific Committee: it is a wish, and we have it especially as a country system, it would mean that the curve continues to improve. This is why I criticized the Lega Pro: it started defensively, giving up too early to end the championships, without giving itself any chance as we are doing for Serie A and for the B. Today, with playoff and playout methods, the Lega Pro risks unloading on the teams a really badly managed situation “.
21.11 – Mancini: “At the beginning there will be surprise results” – During his speech in the live video on Gazzetta.it, the national technical commissioner Roberto Mancini he talked about the championship: I think that at the beginning there will be a bit of difficulty for everyone because many players will not be in top condition. The hope is to see that the players get in shape with the passing of the games. The rhythm will not be as usual at the beginning, then it will also be a little warmer. There will be some problems, however, I hope to see good football. There will be surprising results because it is one thing to play with the public that sometimes drags you and without anyone “.

Or Juve that loses the Scudetto with Perugia, Inter that loses it in 2002 at the rush final. These emotions cannot restore an algorithm. It is very dangerous to talk about algorithms today, it would be to apply a mathematical measure that does not exist in football “.

Today there are clear rules, which allow you to continue the activity, isolating an athlete or a staff professional, continuing your training. We know that this rule is foreseen, the hope is that shortly, a week before the start of the tournaments, therefore of the Italian Cup, can be re-evaluated: we will send a new proposal, in the hope that this rule will be revisited. Today, theoretically, but probably also in practice, it creates great anxiety and concern “. Click here for the full interview.

12.07 – The latest on the B As reported by the press office of Lega B through official note, “the Ordinary Assembly of the National League of Professionals Serie B, left open on May 15, will resume its work on Wednesday June 3 at 12 noon after the morning will meet on In addition to the president’s communications and the general manager’s information at the center of the meeting, issues related to the Covid emergency 19 “.
11.37 – Cup reversed races? Will the semi-finals of the Italian Cup scheduled for 12 and 13 June be reversed? It is one of the hypotheses under consideration launched by Libero who speaks at length about the calendar of A that will be presented today, with 10 games at 5.15 pm, 50 at 7.15 pm and 64 at 9.30 pm. 124 league games but for the Cup the dates could be reversed and therefore we could start again with Napoli-Inter and then the one between Juventus and Milan.
10.43 – No Scudetto with the algorithm The algorithm is already on the dock. Because it could also give heavy results and results on the economic side for clubs. Just think of Milan that at the moment would be ninth, and not seventh, and outside Europe: meanwhile, it would lose 2 million difference prizes plus those for the Europa League. The algorithm, however, specifies the newspaper, will not decide the Scudetto: “if the play-offs cannot be played, the title will not be assigned”.
09.55 – Milan without Europe with the algorithm Juventus first with 92.07 points, according to the algorithm identified by Republic (but title not assigned), then Lazio, Inter and Atalanta in the Champions League. Roma and Napoli would go to the Europa League, fifth and sixth. Only ninth place for Milan behind Verona and Parma, down instead Lecce, SPAL and Brescia. For the Salento, a trifle in the calculation was decisive: Genoa would be 36.86 points, Lecce would be 36.53.
09.30 – “No to the algorithm” says Marotta The algorithm has been rejected by all Serie A clubs. Giuseppe Marotta, managing director of Inter: “It cannot be a solution. How can you consider the unpredictable underlying football? We are opposed to any solution that does not either to end the season or to keep the classification. If the championship cannot be closed, it is because the epidemic will have started again and then I don’t see how playoffs and playouts can be played. ”
09.22 – One race per day It will be played every day, from 20 June to 2 August. Today the League of A will officialize the calendar from the resumption of June 20 with the 4 recoveries: in total they will be 124 to leave: the ok from the ministers of health (Hope) and sport (Spadafora) for Juventus-Milan should arrive for the 12th and Napoli-Inter on 13 June, semi-finals of the Italian Cup. Final at the Olimpico on the 17th. The idea that today should then be official with the calendar is that from the 22nd, the day of shooting, there will not be an evening without football.
09.00 – A calendar today? Waiting to untie the many knots (free-to-air TV, quarantine, contracts), the calendar should arrive today. And indiscretions flock: we (re) leave from Turin-Parma at 19.30 on 19 June, the same evening (at 21.45) Hellas Verona-Cagliari would take the field. Then on June 20 here is Atalanta-Sassuolo (19.30) and finally Inter-Sampdoria (21.45). As for the 27th day, the first that would be (re) played in full, here is the advance Bologna-Juventus (22 June at 21.45), while the postponements would be Inter-Sassuolo and Atalanta-Lazio (24 June, 19.30 and 21.45 respectively). Among the various advances and postponements, here is Milan Rome at 17.15 on 28 June, Lazio-Milan on July 4 at 21.45 and Milan-Juventus on July 7 always 21.45. Key week for the Scudetto in mid-July: on the 11th Juve hosts Atalanta at 9:45 pm (on the 12th there is Napoli-Milan), on the 20th is played at the same time Juve-Lazio (on the 19th here is Roma-Inter ).
