Serie B matches rescheduled

The Lega Calcio have confirmed the postponement of three Serie B fixtures this weekend - Albinoleffe-Parma, Brescia-Treviso and Sassuolo-Pisa - due to the number of players on international duty.

The rules introduced into Serie B two years ago state that any club with at least two players called away on international duty can apply to have their game rescheduled so that they will not be excessively weakened.

All three encounters were scheduled for this Sunday afternoon as part of Week 2 but will now be played on Tuesday 16 September.

Meanwhile, Serie B's govering body have also announced the schedule all the way up to Week 7.

Many of these adjustments have been made in the light of television coverage in Italy and for security reasons.

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