It seems there is no end to the havoc coronavirus created in Italy's football calendar, with another match, namely Napoli vs Inter, to be called off as the spread of the virus turns to be a crisis in Italy.

Coppa Italia semi-final match second leg between Inter and Napoli is the latest fixture in Italian football calendar to be called off due to growing worries over the spread of coronavirus.

As Serie A officials confirmed in a statement, not only Inter-Napoli tie but also another match in the same tournament (Coppa Italia), namely Juventus-Milan, which was originally to take place on Wednesday, have been called off.

With 2263 confirmed positive cases in Italy of whom 80 have already died, it's no wonder Italian football has suffered the most in European football from the havoc coronavirus has created so far.

Over the past two weeks, several Serie A fixtures have been postponed, including the match between Juventus an Inter Milan which was to take place last Sunday.

ANSA has reported that Italian government may cancel all sporting events for 30 days, although football matches may yet be allowed behind closed doors.

Inter lost the first leg 1-0 at San Siro, with Fabian Ruiz scoring the winner for Napoli.
