The decision had been in the air for several days due to the postponements over the Coronavirus outbreak. A new Government decree ruled on Wednesday that all games would be played behind closed doors until at least April 3.
The Lega Serie A then had to decide whether to continue with the regular fixture list, which would have Week 27 played on March 7 and 8, or resume rom where they left off and move the Week 26 postponed matches to this weekend.
Juventus-Inter will be officiated by Marco Guida in the rescheduled Week 26 Serie A match on Sunday, with Daniele Doveri for Milan-Genoa.
Must have been incredibly difficult for either team to prepare effectively for this match, giving the late announcement that it not be played behind closed doors on Sunday night. Not sure whether the lack of preparation hurts Antonio Conte’s side or is a positive.
Finally, a decision was formally announced this afternoon, with all the remaining Week 26 games played behind closed doors on Sunday March 8 and Sassuolo-Brescia on Monday March 9.
