Inzaghi has had to work remotely from home whilst self-isolating, with assistant coach Massimiliano Farris taking over on the sidelines for the wins against Hellas Verona and Benevento.

The Biancocelesti coach’s Covid-19 test today will dictate whether he’ll be able to re-join the squad for Thursday’s match against the Partenopei or not.

Should he still test positive, then Farris will take over for the third consecutive game.
