But as per the reports of ESPN, the league has been stalled till May 3.

The players supposed to take a salary cut if the season could not be completed while, but the decision was not welcomed and deemed as ‘shameful’ by the Italian PFA. The last Serie A match played was played back on March 9, when Sassuolo defeated Brescia 3-0.

There is much uncertainty regarding the future of the league with clubs like Fiorentina and Torino believes that the league might not be completed this season. On the flip side, the Italian FA chief said that it would be an ‘injustice’ to call off Serie A.
