Serie A match between Roma and Napoli may be postponed
The No TAV movement, a group which has been campaigning against a scheduled high speed railway link between Turin and French city Lyon since the nineties, are set to arrive en masse for a protest in Rome.
According to news agency Ansa, the Italian ministry of the interior has made it clear that the combination of a match at the Stadio Olimpico and the demonstration would create problems.
However, finding an alternative date may prove difficult. Napoli have five more group stage matches in the Champions League to play, including a trip to Marseille three days after the scheduled tie against Roma.
The Lega Calcio will discuss the issue on Friday.
