The new date has been set for Friday 26th March, at 11am local time. The Biancocelesti requested the postponement because club president Claudio Lotito was required to attend a Lega Serie A meeting regarding TV rights this morning.

Torino are pushing for Lazio to be given a 3-0 forfeit due to the fact that they fielded Ciro Immobile in the November 1st match, despite the fact that he tested positive to UEFA’s Covid-19 test on the 28th October.
