Serie B: Juve-Napoli postponed

The Serie B showdown between Juventus and Napoli has been rescheduled for April 10 along with two other games.

Week 32 was set to be a crucial crossroads in the promotion race, as the top two teams face off at the Stadio Olimpico in Turin.

However, due to new rules allowing Serie B sides to postpone their matches if two or more of their players are called away on international duty, the Bianconeri were able to change their plans.

Juve have seven stars who would otherwise miss this very important Serie B encounter – Gianluigi Buffon, Alessandro Del Piero, Mauro German Camoranesi, Under-21 internationals Raffaele Palladino and Giorgio Chiellini, Bulgarian Valeri Bojinov and Croatian defender Robert Kovac.

The other games rescheduled from the original March 25 and 26 dates are Brescia-Triestina and Treviso-Pescara.

All three of these matches will now be played on Tuesday April 10, but the kick-off times are still to be confirmed.
