MILAN (Reuters) – The Serie A club announced in a statement on Thursday the holding of five games that had been postponed from February 29 to March 2 due to concerns about the Coruna virus, including the summit between Juventus and Inter Milan, next Sunday.

The matches will be played without fans in accordance with a government decision on Wednesday. The government banned fans from attending sports events until April 3 to combat the worst spread of the virus in Europe.

In other matches, Parma will play with Spal and Milan with Genoa and Sampdoria with Verona and Udinese with Fiorentina, while the sixth match will be between Sassuolo and Brescia on Monday. As for the round 27 matches, they will be held at a later date.

Second-placed Juventus are two points behind leaders Lazio, who have a game in hand, while Inter are eight points away from the summit and have two games in hand.
