Less than 24 hours after the second leg between bianconeri and rossoneri, the postponement is confirmed as a preventive measure.
Less than 24 hours after the second leg of the Coppa Italia semifinals between Juventus and Milan was played, the match has been suspended. Confirmed: it is not played either at open doors or at closed doors. The reason? It is a preventive measure to the epidemic of the Coronavirus that plagues the transalpine country.

The two Serie A teams had drawn 1-1 in the first leg played in San Siro, where Cristiano Ronaldo matched the tie with a disputed penalty. Ante Rebic had advanced to Milan.

This Tuesday, the decision was made to postpone the game after a meeting with representatives of Juventus, the mayor of Turin, Chiara Appendino, and the prefect of the same city, Claudio Paolomba.

The Juve’s chief of communications, Claudio Albanese, had already made it clear: “Juventus respects any decision made by the authorities, public health is also a priority for society.”

Coronavirus has generated chaos in Italy with the soccer calendar, as several Serie A games have been postponed in recent weeks. In fact, five have been suspended last weekend, including Inter’s visit to Juventus herself. The other four? Udinese vs. Fiorentina , Milan vs. Genoa , Parma vs. SPAL and Sassuolo vs. Brescia All would be played on May 13, except Juve – Inter, which would be played on Monday, March 9.
