Calcio Mercato are reporting that the derby della Madonnina between AC Milan and Inter Milan is not at risk of going ahead despite the numerous number of positive tests of the coronavirus amongst the Inter squad. The Nerrazzuri will likely miss Alessandro Bastoni, Milan Skriniar, Radja Nainggolan and Roberto Gagliardini for the game as they have all tested positive for the coronavirus in the past few days. Milan meanwhile have Leo Duarte and Matteo Gabbia who have tested positive and Zlatan Ibrahimovic who has recovered and has now tested negative.

Nicolo Schira is now adding that Inter's back up goalkeeper Antei Radu was also tested positive for the coronavirus further increasing the total.

The current regulation around postponement is as follows per Sempre Milan, “If a team has at least thirteen players available (including at least one goalkeeper), and on the condition that the aforementioned players are, in any case, negative results in the tests that precede the match in question in compliance with the Protocol of the Italian Football Federation.”
