Inter have appealed to the CONI Collegio di Garanzia, the highest sporting authority, to have their Serie A clash with Bologna from January 6 awarded as a 3-0 win rather than postponed.

This is confirmed in a statement by the board, reported by FCInterNews, where they lay out the Nerazzurri’s appeal, to have the win awarded rather than have the match played at a later date.

Inter had showed up to Bologna’s stadium on March 6 for the scheduled kickoff, but the Rossoblu’s squad were unable to attend due to an order by their regional health authority regarding COVID cases in their squad.

The decision last month by the league was that the match would be played at a later date, as the Emilian team had a valid reason not to attend, but the Nerazzurri have appealed this.

Now, Inter have taken their appeal to the highest possible level in the hopes that they will not have to go through with the fixture.
