A new court date has been set for Lazio’s appeal for a 3-0 default win over Torino.
According to a report from Italian news outlet ANSA earlier today, the 13th May at 2pm local time is the new date set by the president of the High Court of Sport Justice Franco Frattini.
The basis of Lazio’s appeal is for a 3-0 default win due to the Granata’s failure to attend a match at the start of last month.
The Torino squad were suffering with a serious outbreak of Covid-19 that also forced them to postpone the match prior against Sassuolo.
The Roman club suggest that Torino should have still attended the match in Rome, even if their squad was entirely made up of youngsters.
The original decision was for the match to be postponed to a later date next month, but president Claudio Lotito was not impressed with this and so has launched this appeal.
