ROME – Italian football is about to start again.

From the eighteenth of May , or perhaps even earlier, the players will return to train collectively and will be able to return to play the matches .
It will be the starter of football played which should return between late May and early June.
At first there was talk of May 31 but the start of the matches could slip in the first week of June .
In any case, the goal is to end the championship by August .
All this because the European cups will return from early August and will end at the end of the same month.
UEFA has decided to give priority to the various national leagues specifying that the resumption of the European cups will take place at the end of the same, in the first week of August .
Having clarified this, we return to talk about Serie A.
Twelve rounds of the championship are missing , plus four recoveries, and the Italian Cup must be assigned , which is still in the semifinals.
We should start with the recoveries of the 25th day which are Inter-Sampdoria, Verona-Cagliari, Turin-Parma and Atalanta-Sassuolo.
Then the other twelve championship rounds will be played with the declared goal of ending the season by the beginning of August playing every 2-3 days.
Completing the Italian Cup is easier since there are only three games left, the two return semi-finals plus the final .
Before the forced stop for the coronavirus , Juve had drawn 1-1 in Milan against Milan while Napoli had won 1-0 at San Siro against Inter .
