What’s Next For Serie A After SS Lazio-FC Torino Was Abandoned
“The ghost match,” “Waiting for Godot,” “Farce,” “Grotesque,” “Kafkian situation”: these are just some of the headlines that Italian sports newspar peused in the aftermath of the controversial SS Lazio-FC Torino fixture.
The match was set to kick-off on Tuesday at 18:30 CET at the Olimpico stadium in Rome and was supposed to be the opening game of the 25 matchdays of the Serie A – Italy’s top-flight soccer league.
However, FC Torino – the visiting team – was banned from traveling to Rome by the local health authority of their region (Piedmont) as a result of a Covid-19 outbreak in the Granata squad.
But despite being perfectly aware that FC Torino never left Turin for Rome, SS Lazio geared up for the game and went as far as announcing the lineups on Twitter and entering the empty pitch for the warmup.
Simone Inzaghi’s team went on twiddling their thumbs for 45 minutes – as per rulebook – until referee Marco Piccinini officially declared the match abandoned.
