Covid-10 cases are numerous today in football and affect many teams. The winter break has not changed that and we start again with the same bases for the beginning of the year 2022. Before the start of matchday 20 in Italy; several clubs reported positive cases within their training sessions and their inability to play; such as Bologna where eight players test positive. While the meeting was postponed the day before the game; the Italian league board confirmed the maintenance of all matches. Therefore; Inter Milan went to the Renato Dall’Ara stadium today … without the Bologna players. A more than surprising situation where the organization can be described as highly questioned. The Nerazzurri took the opportunity to play anyway with an opposition between future starters and substitutes.

What follow-up on postponed matches?

The management of this meeting is more than confusing. The state of the Bologna team was already known to everyone yesterday; but the governing bodies wanted the game to continue. The same scenario should hold for other matches involving a team severely affected by the coronavirus; such as Torino against Atalanta Bergam. With this mess; the League must now decide the fate of these meetings. Yes simple deferral option being considered; the decisions taken since yesterday suggest that the formations that cannot go lose the match on the green carpet; since the opponent showed up at the place of the match. Given that such situations are expected to recur in the future; Italian leaders must now decide and not let the doubt last any longer. Clubs deserve to know what to expect.
