The weather forecast for Sunday night in Modena indicates that it will be really foggy at the Stadio Alberto Braglia. The League does not want to repeat the same mistake they made in the Coppa Italia match between Carpi and Vicenza on Thursday afternoon, when the players could barely see the opponent's goal from midfield.

For that reason Carpi, Milan and the Serie A brass are working together in order to move up the game to 12:00pm ET (18:00 CET) to be played simultaneously with the Sampdoria-Sassuolo match, or to 2: 45pm ET (20:45 CET). Sky Sports Italia, who owns the broadcast rights for all the Serie A games, will have a crucial role in this decision. It does have an interest in rescheduling the game, since it prides itself on providing the best possible service to its subscribers, and it would be tough for viewers to enjoy the match when all they can see is fog. The decision is still pending, but should be made as soon as possible.
