The two teams will clash after never playing the actual match due to corona virus issues
Napoli have won an appeal to replay a match against Juventus after being considered to have lost the original tie due to corona virus concerns.
The match between the two was scheduled for October 4 in Turin, but the match was called off after Corona was banned from traveling to Napoli due to virus laws.
The confrontation between Napoli and Ju began shortly after the confrontation with Genoa. Kovid developed 19 cases.
Initially, Napoli’s visit to Juventus was ruled out, with only a 3-0 victory at Juventus Stadium.
In addition, Napoli were further penalized as the club received one point for not traveling for the match.
Serie A and the Italian Federation (FIGC) ruled that Napoli did not adhere to the Covid-19 protocols in the league, meaning that their inability to compete was their own work.
The FIGC upheld Serie A’s decision on Napoli’s original appeal on the grounds that not enough squad members had tested positive enough to postpone the match in accordance with the league’s Covid protocol.
Serie A said in its judgment that the legal term “force majeure” did not exist in this case for an extraordinary event or situation beyond the control of any party.
Napoli’s Court of Arbitration for Sport also ruled that Napoli “deserved permission because it was not impossible for them to take part in the competition, but rather a voluntary move of the situation in that direction.”
In the following weeks, Napoli appealed the ruling, citing two positive coronavirus cases within the team, as ordered by the local health authority, making it impossible for them to travel legally, with Pyotr Sialinsky and Elgif Elmas.
On Tuesday, Napoli won that appeal with the CONI (Italian National Olympic Committee) and decided that the match would be played again and that a few points before Napoli would be restored.
As a result of the verdict, Napoli will move to a place in Serie A due to the re-established point, as they will overtake fourth-placed Roma by a goal difference.
Juventus are third in Serie A and seven points behind league leaders AC Milan.
Napoli face Granada in the Europa League knockout round in February and face Torino on Wednesday.
Juventus, meanwhile, will host Fiorentina in the final.
