According to a report from Gazzetta dello Sport, the much anticipated Serie A match between Juventus and Inter Milan will be played behind closed doors. The reported decision was made due to continued fear and caution regarding the Coronavirus outbreak.

The deadly virus has continued to devastate Italy. There are over 200 confirmed cases of the virus in the country now, making it one of the worst in Europe. There are multiple matches that were canceled in the last few days with many more expected to be impacted over the weekend.

Inter Milan traveling to Juventus is one of those matches. Sampdoria vs Verona, AC Milan vs Genoa, Parma vs Spal and Udinese vs Fiorentina are all expected to be affected according to reports. Safety and public health will and should always comes first. Serie A is in an interesting situation and its good to see them coordinating with public health officials over the matter.
