Bad news for those expecting the Italian Serie A group training on Monday 18 May 2020, as it was predicted.  Simply put, still no group training. The  Italian Football Federation (FIGC) delivered the updated protocol to Italian Sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora.  For the moment, individual training will continue following the forced stop after the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak.    Italian teams returned to individual training on Monday 4 May with all safety precautions.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Serie A Clubs consider the initial protocol too strict and considered almost impossible to meet, prompting the request of modifications of the protocol.

Italian Serie A teams vote to resume the Serie A 2019-2020 on June 13, 2020.  The announcement was made on Wednesday 13 May with a video call including all Serie A Clubs reaching this agreement. The action was taken following the declaration of Italy’s Sports Minister, Vincenzo Spadafora, saying that games would only be played again when safety could be guaranteed.   The Serie A was stopped due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak.

The situation is delicate because Italy had been heavily impacted by COVID-19.  Reportedly, Italy has around 31,000 death from the coronavirus.

For the moment, Italian teams returned to individual training on Monday 4 May with all safety precautions.  Group training sessions are set to start from Monday 18 May.   The final word whether the Serie A will resume on June 13 is up to the Italian Government approval.

However, fans will have to wait to go back to the Stadium to root for their favorite teams.  The games, until new changes, will be played without fans.  Moreover, players will be tested to make sure they are not positive with COVID-19.  If players test positive, they will be quarantined for 2 weeks.

Here are the Serie A  Standing 5 top positions with Juventus leading in the first position with 63 points followed by Lazio in the second position with 62 points.  The third position is for Inter with 54 points being -9 points below the leader.  Up to Serie A Week 26, it seems a two-way race for the Scudetto.
