Inter’s postponed Serie A clash with Bologna will be played on either April 27 or May 4 if the club’s appeals to have it awarded as a 3-0 win are not successful.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the fixture will not be played for at least three weeks as the appeals process drags on, but that the league can schedule it soon after.
Inter have taken their appeal to have the match awarded as a 3-0 win to the highest level of sporting judge in Italy, CONI’s Collegio di Garanzia.
The club are hoping to reverse the decision by the league last month to have the fixture played at a later date after it did not go through on January 6 because of COVID cases in the Rossoblu’s squad.
With the hearing scheduled, it is clear that the fixture cannot be played in any of the three weeks after the international break, but if Inter are unsuccessful then the league will be able to schedule it.
The Nerazzurri play the second leg of their Copa Italia clash with AC Milan on April 19 so this date is not available, meaning that the dates of April 27 and May 4 look to be the possibilities.
