With Serie A given the green light to resume from Saturday, June 20, plans are in place to complete the Coppa Italia prior to a return to league action.

In a videoconference involving the FIGC and Lega Serie A on Thursday evening, Italian Minister for Sport Vincenzo Spadafora confirmed that Serie A would return on June 20. It sees a return to action in the Italian top flight for the first time since March 9, following the postponement of all fixtures due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, Spadafora also announced that the Coppa Italia would be concluded before Serie A began, with the second leg of the semi-finals played on June 13 and the final to be staged on June 17.

The schedule of fixtures for both Serie A and the Coppa Italia is set to be confirmed on Friday, May 29, as Juventus prepare to host AC Milan and Inter travel to Napoli in the second legs of their respective Semi-Finals.

A Fabian Ruiz goal gave Napoli a slender advantage over the Nerazzurri in the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on February 12, whilst Milan and Juventus played out a 1-1 draw in the same stadium the following day.
