All club football has been suspended in Italy after parts of the country were placed in lockdown by the government in an effort to contain the spread of the virus.

Juventus are due to face Lyon in Turin behind closed doors in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 game on 17 March, though it is possible the game will be postponed after both Inter Milan and Roma had Europa League games called off this week.








A statement on the club’s website said: “The footballer Daniele Rugani has tested positive for Coronavirus-COVID-19 and is currently asymptomatic.
