Serie A Clubs Look to 13 June Return

Serie A clubs have voted in favour of resuming the season on 13 June.

Yet the league will still need the approval of the Italian government.

The clubs involved came to the decision during the league’s general assembly.

Overall 16 teams voted to restart next month.

While four said they wished the begin playing again the following weekend on 20 June.

A resumption on 13 June would ensure enough time to complete all fixtures before Uefa’s 2 August cut off point.

Training Issue Resolved

Italian sports minister Vincenzo Spadafora has confirmed that a medical protocol has been agreed over group training.

Collective training can now begin on 18 May.

Individual work outs were permitted earlier this month.

This was announced by Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte in a televised address.

A Serie A statement declared: “Regarding the resumption of sporting activity, in accordance with the decisions of the Government and in compliance with the medical protocols to protect players and all involved personnel, the date of June 13 has been indicated for the resumption of the league.”

Juventus in Pole Position

Juventus are a point ahead of championship chasing Lazio at the top of Serie A.

The Bianconeri are looking for their ninth consecutive title.

Inter Milan and Atalanta are in the Champions League qualifying positions in third and fourth respectively.

Roma in fifth and Napoli in sixth heading towards the Europa League next season.

Yet there are only three points separating Roma and Atalanta.

At the bottom Genoa and Lecce are fighting it out on 25 points each to avoid relegation in 18th position.

SPAL and Brescia are adrift and are almost certain to drop into Serie B.
