Inter’s Serie A clash with Bologna is likely to be postponed until February 22 or 23.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the clubs are just awaiting the approval of UEFA to move the match to a date in which European fixtures are taking place.
Inter travelled to Bologna yesterday, but were unable to go through with the match as the Rossoblu were prohibited from showing up due to an order from their local health authority on account of COVID cases in their squad.
The match was officially suspended and it remains to be seen how the league treats the matter, but it looks likely that the match will be postponed rather than declared a forfeiture.
Finding a date in which to move the match could be tricky given the packed fixture calendar, and the Nerazzurri and Atalanta are the two teams in European competition among the eight unable to play their Serie A matches yesterday.
February 22 and 23 are free in the Nerazzurri’s schedule, with their Champions League round of sixteen first leg match against Liverpool played the week before.
Accordingly, the team are likely to play the match in one of these days, although UEFA are yet to approve the league fixtures during the same days as European competitions.
