The Super Cup is played The League says no to postponement

Inter and Juventus will compete for the trophy on January 12 (9 pm) at the “Meazza” The two clubs had requested the move due to the increase in infections

MILAN. No postponement for Covid: Inter-Juve, Supercoppa final, will be played as scheduled on January 12 at San Siro. The contagion situation among Serie A players is evolving, new names are added every day to the positives that gradually become negativized – most recently, the Roma player Borja Mayoral and a Fiorentina player – but we go on. This is the meaning of the decision of the League Council, gathered today as a matter of urgency: unanimously, the six components voted no to the displacement of the Super Cup, in the face of the desire of the two clubs to postpone the match scheduled in 10 days. There are no alternative dates in the A calendar, and therefore the president Dal Pino, the CEO De Siervo and the presidents of Cagliari, Giulini, Milan, Scaroni, Verona, Setti, and from Atalanta, Percassi, voted unanimously confirming the line expressed in League A from the first moment, when Juve and Inter were oriented to request a postponement, given the evolution of the Covid situation, with infections on the rise among the players and the capacity of the stadiums reduced by the government to 50% .

Inter-Juve has remained fixed on the set day: at the moment, Dzeko on the one hand and Chiellini among other things would not be in the game, to name the more than 40 players of A who are still in quarantine. Of course, there was a negative surprise at the resumption of training after the short Christmas break, and still today casts some shadows on the January 6 shift, without prejudice to the risk of intervention by the local ASL as it has already been for Salernitana. But all in all, Serie A was less worse at the moment than other foreign championships, and also Serie B forced to postpone two Christmas rounds and to C, which postponed the 9th round.

The news from abroad says that the growth curve of football infections runs perfectly parallel to the general one. Thus the Premier draws up heavy bulletins on a daily basis, as demonstrated by Chelsea-Liverpool, deprived of Jurgen Klopp, coach of the Reds, and then of Alisson, Matip and Firmino. In France, the PSG today added four infections, including those of Leo Messi; Bordeaux, despite 21 infected, did not get the postponement of the French Cup match with Brest and was eliminated. In Italy, Ternana in C is a real outbreak: the infected players rise to 13. Benevento recorded five cases at the resumption, including two players. The Romanist Mayoral, in isolation after contacts with positives, tested positive; and the Italian, the Viola coach, has added a second player to his Covid blacklist. Were it not for the virologists’ belief that Omicron runs but doesn’t hurt like the other variants, football would really risk a heavy block.
