Lazio-Torino faces flood risk

There are fears tonight’s Lazio-Torino game will have to be postponed after a freak thunderstorm struck the Stadio Olimpico.

All of Italy is under heavy rainfall today with authorities on alert for potential flooding in several major cities, including Parma, Genoa, Naples, Venice and Messina.

There are reports from the Olimpico that the pitch has several large puddles and if the rainfall continues to come down at the current rate then it’s possible the game might have to be called off.

There are also concerns over the Parma-Roma match, although the Tardini turf has been protected by sheeting placed over the last couple of days.
