Atalanta-Genoa is off

Atalanta-Genoa was initially snowed off, then delayed, but has now officially been postponed.

There is chaos at the Stadio Azzurri d’Italia with the match that was set to kick off at 17.00 UK time.

Over this midweek round we have already seen Parma-Juventus, Bologna-Fiorentina and Siena-Catania called off due to heavy snow in Italy.

Initially Atalanta-Genoa was called off as areas of the stands were not deemed safe due to the ice, but the fans offered to simply move out of those sections and the operations of cleaning the pitch resumed.

However, the authorities were not satisfied this was the right solution, so as the snowfall intensified, the match was postponed and will be played at a later date.
