Inter and Juventus Ask for Supercoppa Italiana Final Delay

The Supercoppa Italiana final is scheduled to take place on January 12, but according to reports from La Gazzetta dello Sport, both Inter and Juventus want the showdown final postponed until the end of the season.

The Derby d’Italia rivals are in agreement with the fact that the final will upset their regular league and cup competition schedules. Also, the fact that there are limitations on spectators allowed inside the stadium due to new Covid-19 rules being implemented.

New restrictions now dictate that only 50% of the capacity in stadiums will operate, from 75%. Moreover, both are in action on January 9th, three days before the clash.

The report mentions of Simone Inzaghi and Massimiliano Allegri being convinced that it is in the best interests of everyone involved that the game be pushed to the end of the current Serie A campaign i.e. when the pandemic situation will also hopefully be in control.

Both clubs have not been contacted by Lega Calcio yet, who have the final word on the scheduling of the highly-anticipated encounter.

The official press release states: In the evening, the Lega Calcio issued a brief statement to say that the match “remains scheduled for January 12, 2022, unless otherwise decided by the Lega Council”.

The legendary San Siro is the venue for the anticipated encounter.
