On Tuesday the prefect of Turin had ordered the postponement of the other semifinal, Juventus-Milan, which was scheduled for tonight. New dates yet to be determined.
In his decision, the Neapolitan prefect notes that "about 40 thousand tickets" were sold for Napoli-Inter and this "would inevitably lead to gatherings to control the entrance to the stadium". "The measure prohibiting the sale of coupons to residents in Lombardy – adds the prefect – already taken for reasons of public order, is not sufficient to prevent the possibility of contagion".
