The first Milan derby between Inter and AC Milan could be played in front of a capacity crowd, with the restrictions on capacity potentially set to be lifted by the time the fixture is played on November 7.
This according to Italian broadcaster SportMediaset, who report that the Italian government may increase the capacity allowed to 100% from the 75% which it is now at in time for the first Milan derby of the season.
Inter will face the Rossoneri in what could be a pivotal game in the title race and is always a massive occasion in Italian football, and should be guaranteed of at least 75% capacity allowed in the stands.
Serie A teams began the season with the allowance of 50% capacity in stadiums after playing all of last season behind closed doors and now that amount has been raised to 75%.
The restriction could be lifted entirely in time for the Milan derby, although for the time being it remains uncertain whether this will be the case or whether the Nerazzurri and the Rossoneri will still have to face each other in front of a 75% capacity crowd.
