Serie A clash between Inter and Bologna to be postponed to February 22-23 pending UEFA approval, Italian media report says
Inter’s Serie A clash with Bologna is expected to be postponed until February 22 or 23.
This according to today’s print edition of the Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, which reports that the clubs are just waiting for UEFA’s approval to move the game to a date when European fixtures will take place.
Inter traveled to Bologna yesterday but were unable to complete the game as the Rossoblu were banned from appearing due to an order from their local health authority due to COVID cases in their squad.
The game has been officially suspended and it remains to be seen how the league will handle the matter, but it seems likely the game will be postponed rather than declared a forfeiture.
Finding a date to move the game could be tricky given the busy schedule, and Nerazzurri and Atalanta are the two competing European teams among the eight that were unable to make their Serie A fixtures yesterday.
February 22 and 23 are free in the Nerazzurri calendar, with their Champions League round of 16 first leg against Liverpool played the week before.
As a result, the team is likely to play the game one of these days, although UEFA has yet to approve league matches on the same days as European competitions.
