Juventus clash with Inter Milan to be played behind closed doors

It's been confirmed that Juventus' clash with Inter Milan in Turin will be played behind closed doors.

Juventus-Inter, Udinese-Fiorentina, Milan-Genoa, Parma-SPAL and Sassuolo-Brescia will all be held without supporters present.

The decision was made despite hopes and last-minute negotiations to get the restrictions on public events loosened amid the Coronavirus outbreak.

Over 580 cases have been confirmed in northern Italy, with 17 deaths, although all the fatalities were affected by pre-existing health conditions.

A statement from the Lega Serie A on Thursday night confirmed there are no changes to the schedule.
