Lazio’s Cancelled Match Against Torino Could Be Rescheduled for Next Month

Lazio’s cancelled match against Torino last night may be rescheduled for next month, with no penalty for the Granata.

According to a report from Italian newspaper La Stampa (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, Torino did not show up for yesterday’s Serie A clash against the Biancocelesti, due to many positive cases of Covid-19 in the squad.

The Turin Local Health Authority already blocked the team from travelling down to Rome, but the match was not postponed as the Granata already had their weekend clash against Sassuolo postponed.

Now the case has been passing to sporting judge Gerardo Mastrandrea, who could decide to order the rescheduling of the match without creating a legal case, like what happened with Juventus and Napoli earlier this campaign.

The match could be postponed to next month, with judge Mastrandrea forcing Lega Serie A to find a new date for the game, without awarding a forfeit and penalty to the Turin based club.
