Juventus president Andrea Agnelli insisted coronavirus protocols are “very clear” after Napoli did not travel for the Serie A blockbuster amid COVID-19 cases.
Napoli are reportedly facing a 3-0 forfeit after Gennaro Gattuso’s side did not make the trip to Turin for Sunday’s showdown against champions Juventus.
High-flying Napoli were advised not to travel by local health authorities after Piotr Zielinski, Eljif Elmas and staff member Giandomenico Costi tested positive for COVID-19.
However, four hours before the scheduled kick-off time on Sunday, Serie A rejected Napoli’s formal request to have the game postponed, as the club technically had at least 13 players available.
