Cagliari-AC Milan game moved to Turin
Cagliari has been ordered to play Sunday’s Serie A game against
AC Milan in Turin because of ongoing safety issues at the Sardinian
team’s home ground.
The Italian league said Thursday the match will be played at the
Stadio Olimpico, more than 855 kilometers away and back on the
Italian mainland. It is less than 150 kilometers away from
Cagliari’s new Is Arenas stadium has caused the team plenty of
problems this season. It failed a safety inspection last year and
Roma was then awarded a 3-0 victory for its game at Cagliari after
the club defied orders to play the Serie A match in an empty
stadium, forcing the game to be postponed for safety reasons.
Cagliari’s home match against defending champion Juventus in
December had to be played at Parma.
