Lazio’s postponed match against Torino is set to be played next month and could even affect the date of the derby against Roma.

According to a report from Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, club president Claudio Lotito and his lawyers will present an appeal to the Collegio di Garanzia at CONI soon, looking to achieve a 3-0 default win and avoid playing the Granata in the postponed match.

Should the appeal fail, then it’ll be necessary to figure out when the postponed match will be played, during an incredibly busy end of the season.

The derby against Roma may be moved from the 16th May to the evening of the 15th, allowing the Biancocelesti to face Torino on the 18th May, the day that UEFA expect to take control of the Stadio Olimpico for this summer’s European Championship.

However, this situation may not be final, as if Roma were to reach the semifinals of the Europa League they would play on the 26th April and the 6th May, then facing Crotone on the 9th and playing again on the 12th. This schedule would then only give the Giallorossi 48 hours to prepare for the derby.

Developments are expected over the coming days and weeks, as it’s clear that a date must be set soon.
