Cagliari-AC Milan game moved to Turin
MILAN (AP) — Cagliari has been ordered to play Sunday's Serie A game against AC Milan in Turin because of ongoing safety issues at the Sardinian team's home ground.
The Italian league said Thursday the match will be played at the Stadio Olimpico, more than 855 kilometers away and back on the Italian mainland. It is less than 150 kilometers away from Milan.
Cagliari's new Is Arenas stadium has caused the team plenty of problems this season. It failed a safety inspection last year and Roma was then awarded a 3-0 victory for its game at Cagliari after the club defied orders to play the Serie A match in an empty stadium, forcing the game to be postponed for safety reasons.
Cagliari's home match against defending champion Juventus in December had to be played at Parma.
