Coronavirus: Juventus-Inter Milan clash to be played behind closed doors

Italy’s sports minister announced yesterday that the government has agreed to hold several closed-door Serie A matches because of the coronavirus, including the clash between Juventus and Inter Milan on Sunday.

Juventus Turin and Inter Milan will have to do without their supporters next Sunday in a decisive meeting for the series A title. The two clubs will play this match without the presence of their fans in the stands because the Italian Minister for Sports Vincenzo Spadafora has indeed announced that the government has given its agreement to the organization of closed games in several regions of northern Italy next weekend.

The Milanese will therefore play twice in a row behind closed doors since the club had announced the closure of the stadium to supporters against Ludogorets, next Thursday in the Europa League.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus will however be able to count on its supporters during the next trip to France next Wednesday to face Lyon at Groupama Stadium in the knockout stages of the Champions League. French Minister of Health, Olivier Véran, had assured that there was “no sense” in the fact that the match did not take place as long as there were no border closures between the two countries.
