Parma-Roma ok despite weather

It is reported Parma-Roma will be able to go ahead this evening despite heavy rainfall on the Stadio Tardini.

The city in the Emilia-Romagna region has been pelted with rain all day, raising doubts about whether or not the pitch will hold up.

However, reporters at the scene suggest the protective sheeting is doing its job and the turf will be in acceptable condition for the 19.45 GMT kick-off.

Over the last two days there have been intense storms and winds in Parma, leading to floods and the closure of some roads with 45mm of rainfall.

Other regions in Italy are also affected by the weather today, with heavy rainfall causing problems in Rome, Naples, Genoa, Tuscany, Calabria, Veneto, Friuli and Sicily.
