Napoli didn’t travel to Turin to play Juventus after the local health authority prevented the team from doing so.
There were surreal scenes at the Allianz Stadium with a sparse number of fans in attendance and the television cameras already broadcasting.
Banner outside San Paolo: “The real virus is called Juventus, disinfectant on Turin”.

Gennaro Gattuso’s Napoli didn’t turn up for kick-off and Juventus later asked for a 3-0 win by default.
However a decision has been postponed until next week according to Sky Sport Italia and there is a possibility the visitors will be deducted one point before the match is rescheduled.
