[FIXTURE CHANGES] Early kick-off for Roma-Inter

The Lega Calcio has announced the changes to the Week 5 and 6 Serie A fixture list.

The Scudetto showdown between Roma and Inter in Week 6 will be on a Saturday afternoon, while the Derby di Torino is a Sunday evening match.

Champions Inter pay visit to current leaders Roma on Saturday September 29 with an early evening kick-off at 18.00 local time (17.00 UK time). This is partly due to security fears, as the local authorities are eager to avoid having high-risk games take place in darkness.

The Tuscan derby Livorno-Fiorentina has been earmarked for the 20.30 local time kick-off on that Saturday. The round concludes on Sunday September 30 with the Turin derby between Torino and Juventus.

Week 5 is a mid-week round and all games will be played on Wednesday September 26 with kick-off at 20.30 local time.

All kick-off times listed are UK time (+1 for Italy/CET).

Week 5:
Wednesday 26 September
Catania v Empoli, Fiorentina v Roma, Genoa v Udinese, Inter v Sampdoria, Juventus v Reggina, Lazio v Cagliari, Napoli v Livorno, Palermo v Milan, Parma v Torino, Siena v Atalanta (all 1930)
