Football Business : Serie A teams to play 2 games a week as fixtures released

Serie A teams will face two-games a week for the rest of the season once the league restarts following the Covid-19 stoppage, according to the fixtures published on Monday. The league confirmed that it will restart on June 20 and finish on August 2 and there will be matches almost every day during that period as it completes the remaining 12 rounds, plus four games outstanding, in just over six weeks.

Serie A has been suspended since March 9 but the government gave the green light for it to restart last Thursday.

Most weekend matchdays will run from Saturday to Monday and midweek rounds from Tuesday to Thursday. The league will resume with the four matches postponed from previous rounds. Torino-Parma get the ball rolling on June 20 followed by Verona v Cagliari. Third-placed Inter host Sampdoria the following evening while Atalanta play Sassuolo.

The first full matchday will be on June 22 with three games, including leaders Juventus at Bologna. Second-placed Lazio will play their first game two days later with a tricky visit to fourth-placed Atalanta. The potentially decisive match between Juventus and Lazio will be on July 20. Juventus, chasing a ninth successive title, lead with 63 points from 26 games followed by Lazio (62).

Serie A team current standings / point table

Juventus is gunning for their ninth straight title, have a one-point lead over surprise package Lazio, making Serie A the tightest race in Europe’s Big Five leagues. Giant-slaying Atlanta have shocked Europe with their Champions League run to the quarterfinals and Italy with their rise to fourth place, but Roma are pushing them hard and, behind them, Napoli and Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s AC Milan are waiting for a slip.
