Inter’s Coppa Italia semi-final, second-leg at Napoli has become the latest fixture to be postponed as a result of the coronavirus crisis engulfing Italian football.

Juventus’ Coppa tie at Milan, which was originally due to take place on Wednesday, was called off and Inter’s match with Napoli in the same competition was also postponed, Serie A confirmed in a statement.

Italian football is enduring chaos with its schedule due to the threat of the spread of coronavirus, of which there have been 2,263 confirmed positive cases in the nation with 80 people having died.

Several Serie A fixtures have been postponed over the past two weekends, including the Derby d’Italia between Juve and Inter, which was due to take place last Sunday.

ANSA reported the government will implement measures to cancel all sporting events for 30 days, although football matches may yet be allowed to take place behind closed doors.

Inter lost the first leg 1-0 at San Siro, with Fabian Ruiz scoring the winner for Napoli.
