Juventus-Napoli clash set to be replayed


After the original game was abandoned due to coronavirus issues, the reigning Serie A champions were handed a controversial 3-0 victory over the Neapolitans.

Napoli have been handed a massive boost in their attempt to keep their title hopes alive going into the New Year, according to The Washington Post.

Genaro Gattuso’s side have won their appeal against a decision that awarded Juventus three points after both the sides’ clash in October was deemed a forfeit due to COVID-19 concerns.

Napoli and Juventus were scheduled to go head to head on October 4 in Turin, but the match was later on cancelled after over a dozen players were tested positive for coronavirus following the Neapolitans’’ game with Genoa a few days earlier.

Apart from giving the Old Lady three points for the game, Napoli was docked one point for not traveling to Turin for the game. Genaro Gattuso’s side were furious with the decision and appealed against it and have now seen their stance recognized by Serie A and the Italian federation (FIGC).
