Serie A schedule: Watch Italy’s Milan, Roma, Juventus and Napoli in matches on CBS’s Paramount+


There are two matchdays scheduled to be played between Thursday and Sunday, but the first Serie A action of the new year could face some real chaos. The league wants to continue to plough ahead with the schedule despite 19 of 20 teams being impacted by COVID and several teams being ordered to quarantine by local health authorities. 

The league is not interested in postponing matches, but Bologna is unable to play its game against leader Inter Milan and it has asked the league to reschedule its next two matches. Local health authorities have also stopped Salernitana, Udinese, and Torino from playing matches. It’s unclear what will happen with their matches on Thursday.

Serie A is risking enduring similar scenes as what occurred in the case of Udinese vs. Salernitana before the December holidays when that match was not technically postponed, but it was also not played due to Salernitana not traveling for the match.

With Inter Milan potentially out of action until Sunday, AC Milan (2nd, 42 points) could move to within a point on Thursday when the Rossoneri host Jose Mourinho and his AS Roma team (6th, 32 points) that’s pushing to get into the Champions League places. Defending champion Inter will have the chance to maintain its spot atop the standings with a weekend home match against Lazio.

If Napoli (3rd, 39 points) can’t overcome various absences in the squad, it could see its title hopes quickly fade with a daunting Thursday away match against surging Juventus (5th (34 points) which has its sights set on working its way into the top four spots and the UEFA Champions League berths that come with them.

At the bottom of the table, Spezia (17th, 16 points) is five points clear of the drop zone, but it has a big four days ahead of it. The Aquilotti have a home game against Verona (12th, 24 points) and a Sunday regional derby match against an 18th-placed Genoa (11 points) side which will be desperate for a home win to revive its survival hopes.
