Coronavirus: Serie A season may not be concluded - FIGC

Juventus celebrate

The Italian football federation (FIGC) said after a meeting on Tuesday that the Serie A season may not finish because of the coronavirus outbreak.
A statement confirmed that Serie A would stop until 3 April following a government decree issued on Monday.
FIGC President Gabriele Gravina also put forward alternative options if the season can not be concluded.
They include staging play-offs, not having a champion for 2019-20 or declaring the current standings final.
Play-offs would take place to determine the champions, European qualification, and the three clubs to be relegated to Serie B.
But if the title winner is decided by the current standings then Juventus would be Italian champions for a ninth straight season, having gone back above Lazio with a 2-0 win over third-placed Inter Milan on Sunday.
