Fiorentina-Roma kick off time changed

Fiorentina's home match against Roma on May 4 is set to be rescheduled after League officials admitted that the evening kick-off is a risk.

The game at Stadio Artemio Franchi was originally meant to be played on Saturday May 4 at 19.45 GMT.

But Lega Calcio officials have released a statement insisting that will be changed due to past incidences between fans.

“The game is at risk with regard to public order," it read. "The rivalry between the two sets of supporters has already resulted in fierce clashes in the past.

“Critically, that will be accentuated with an evening kick off.”

It is, as yet, unclear when the match will be moved to.
