Milan call for Napoli tie to be called-off as weather hits Serie A fixtures

The extreme weather affecting Italy has resulted in a number of postponements in this week’s Serie A schedule.
Last night the tie between Parma and Juventus was cancelled due to the icy weather, and tonight will see Bologna vs Fiorentina and Siena vs Catania also postponed. And another game that could be set to join them is Sunday’s posticipo clash between Milan and Napoli at San Siro.
Milan have made an official request to Serie A president Maurizio Beretta, with club vice-president Adriano Galliani stating that the weather forecasts for the weekend suggest that the game cannot go ahead, and has found favour for his opinions with Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis.
In a letter seen by Mediaset Sport, Galliani revealed: “All the weather forecasts for the coming days, and in particular the weekend, predict prohibitive weather conditions, the likes of which we have not seen for 27 years: in Milan, snow and temperatures between -8 and -10. In these conditions, I strongly believe that to play the Milan/Napoli tie, would be more than inconvenient.” Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
