Serie A, Covid does not stop football. But it is chaos: more and more positive. The League: the calendar does not change

The variante Omicron it fell into the life of each of us without looking anyone in the face. And even in the world of football there are doubts and uncertainties about how the next days of A league. The number of cases of positivity to Covid grows day by day, accomplices i travel around the world, during the Christmas break, to which i soccer players they did not want to give up.

Despite the news of positive players increasing day by day, now, the line of the Serie A League is clear: i calendars are too tight to resort to postponed matches or calendar suspensions. No suspension, therefore, and the teams will take the field regularly on January 6, as scheduled, for the first day of the second round.

The calendar of the first day of return of Serie A remains unchanged: is what filters from the football league, to which the Salerno addressed a request for referral of the match with Venice for the quarantine decided by the ASL after the eleven positive Covid results found. The current regulation, indeed, it does not provide for the possibility of postponement with a ceiling of players available, as in the current championship.

Ma. There is a big “but” that hovers over the Italian championship. The Asl they will be able to intervene and prevent the teams from leaving for the designated trip in the event of an established outbreak. Faced with an outbreak, in fact, they will ban teams from taking the field.

And with this in mind to risk that the referees do not call the start of the match are already 4 teams. The first game at risk is Salerno-Venice. The Campania region has already been stopped in the last game of 2021, when they should have taken the Udinese field, but the ASL blocked them. To date i positive in the Salernitana house are 11 and it is unlikely that the Arechi stadium will open its gates on Thursday 6 January.

The second game at risk is that between Spezia and Hellas Verona. Today the news that in the yellow and blue house there are 10 positives (8 players and 2 staff). Also in this case seems unlikely that the Venetians leave Verona to go to the peak of La Spezia.

Here is the situation team by team:

Atalanta: 2 positives in the team group, one is Musso
Bologna: Molla, Viola, Dominguez, Hickey
Cagliari: Nandez
Empoli: 3 positives in the team group
Fiorentina: 2 positive players and three members close to the first team
Genoa: Shevchenko, Criscito, and Serpe
Inter: Dzeko, Cordaz and Satriano
Juventus: Chiellini, Pinsoglio and Arthur
Milan: Tatarusanu. Another positive announced.
Naples: Osimhen (quarantine in Nigeria), Lozano, Elmas, Malcuit, Mario Rui, a staff member and a warehouse worker, as well as Spalletti.
Roma: positive Mayoral, Fuzato and another player
Salerno: positive 9 players and two staff members
Sampdoria: Augello, Falcone
Sassuolo: positive 3 players from the first team, one is Peluso, and a staff member
Spice: Hristov, Kovalenko, Nzola, Manaj and a collaborator
Torino: three players and a staff member, in addition to the three members of the team group who tested positive in the last screening.
Venezia: positive 2 members
Verona: 8 positive players and two staff members
Udinese: 7 footballers and 2 staff members

Teams must then address the issue of players in the squad no-vax, which in Serie A are 25-28. From 10 January, when it will come into force in a government decree, they will not be able to take the field.

Serie A, therefore, pushes to play, but i absent players for the first meetings of 2022 are more than 60 and probably in the next few days there will be even more. Italian football risks plunging back into absolute chaos e to pay the price they will surely be show they passionate.
