Details of the remaining fixtures in this season's Serie A have finally been confirmed. After another complicated evening in which discussion were almost put off until Wednesday,  the Italian league released the official dates and kick-off times or almost all of the remaining matches - just the last three matchdays, which will be decided at a later date, depending on who is where in the standings.

Serie A returns - football almost every day

After three months without football, Italians will now have enough to keep them occupied - what is left to play of the 2019/20 season will run from 20 June until 23 July; there will only be five days during that time when no matches are played. Football officially returns to the country before that though, on 12 and 13 June with the semi-final return legs ties of the Coppa Italia (Juventus  v AC Milan and Napoli v Inter), and the final in Rome on 17. Those dates have not yet been officially confirmed because Serie A requested bringing those games forward by one day and hopes that the government will give their consent to do so.

On Saturday 20 June, Serie A returns with Torino-Parma and Verona-Cagliari. On the following day, we have Atalanta-Sassuolo and Inter-Sampdoria - those four matches will complete the Week 25 fixtures which were postponed because of the coronavirus outbreak. On Monday 22 June, all of the games corresponding to Week 27 of the competition will begin.

Monday 20 July could well be the day when the Scudetto is decided with a mouth-watering tussle as Juventus host Lazio. Just eight games will be played at 17:15 hours (including AC Milan-Roma and Juventus-Torino) but the majority of the games will kick off at 21:45 hours, a little later for Italians and closer to the evening programme of recent years in Spain. With matches practically every day, there'll be something of interest for every fan of the Beautiful Game.
