Inter v Ludogrets could be moved

Inter’s Europa League Round of 32 second leg against Ludogrets could be played in a neutral venue, according to a report.

Inter’s game against Sampdoria this evening was cancelled due to the spread of the Coronavirus in certain regions of the country.

All sporting events in the Lombardy and Veneto regions of Italy were cancelled late last night. Italian news agency ANSA now states that there is a possibility for the game to be moved to a neutral venue.

Inevitably, now Ludogorets have released a statement confirming their formal request to UEFA for more information on the situation in Milan.

The Bulgarians are set to play at San Siro on Thursday in the second leg of the Europa League Round of 32.

Options mentioned include playing the game behind closed doors, moving the venue to neutral turf or even switching it so that Ludogorets play the second leg in Razgrad.

The first leg ended 2-0 for Inter in Bulgaria on February 20.

Ludogorets have requested information as soon as possible, because they have 600 fans who were planning to make the trip to Italy.

The Lombardy region, including Milan, represent the hotbed of the Coronavirus outbreak in Italy, with more cases there than anywhere else.
