Italian Media Detail Reasons Why Inter’s Supercoppa Italiana Clash With Juventus Was Not Postponed

The Lega Serie A decided not to postpone the Supercoppa Italiana clash between Inter and Juventus from its proposed date of January 12.

This is because the league is worried about setting a precedent amid continuing uncertainty around COVID, while they feel that the fixture could be impossible to fit in with both teams’ schedules across the rest of the campaign.

The Nerazzurri and the Bianconeri asked the league to postpone the Supercoppa match to the spring as they had hoped that they could play it in front of a larger crowd when capacity restrictions are relaxed in stadiums.

However, the league declined the clubs’ proposal as they felt that the fixture can still be fit in with the schedule even amid the spike in COVID cases in Italy, while they do not wish to set a precedent for postponing matches as they are determined to continue with the Serie A schedule.

Meanwhile, both Inter and Juventus could have packed fixture schedules all the way through the spring, and the league feel that the Supercoppa match could only be fit in if both clubs either drop out of the Champions Legaue or the Coppa Italia.
