The AC Milan Women and Fiorentina’s Coppa Italia Match is Postponed Due to the Coronavirus

They just can’t catch a break now, can they?

AC Milan’s match against Fiorentina has officially been called off.

The postponement was put in place after the city of Firenze recently confirmed their first case of the coronavirus.

The second leg of the fixture between the two teams was set to be played at the Stadio Gino Bozzi in Firenze. Now, it will be played at a later date.

This also comes in light of the FIGC’s decision to have all of Serie A’s weekend fixtures played behind closed doors, including the match between Genoa and Milan.

This is the second time a match for AC Milan has been called off this season. The first postponed match was against Pink Bari. That one was called-off due to fog, though it was eventually rescheduled for January 29th. Milan won that absolute thriller by a score of 6-3.

I guess we’ll just have wait a little while longer for the much anticipated Laura Fusetti and Alia Guagni battle.

In the meanwhile, have a gratuitous pic of the previously mentioned Alia to make you feel better.

And have one of our Valentina.

And Nora too.

And have another one just because I ― I mean, you, can.

Also, if you’re gonna be missing these ladies something fierce, then you can watch a few of them play in next month’s Algarve Cup. The first match will be played on March 4th, where four of our Milan ladies will be suiting up for Italy.

Now, wouldn’t you rather watch that than what is sure to be an agonizing Coppa Italia tie?

If you do choose to make such a wise decision, then I’ll see you then.
