Italy’s Serie A has a “99%” chance of resuming on 13 June according to the head of the country’s Olympic committee (Coni).

Training has already resumed and the league approved 13 June for resumption if permitted by the government.

The league was suspended on 9 March with most teams having 12 games to play.

“To talk about the chances of it finishing, you would need a crystal ball,” Coni president Giovanni Malago said.

“It’s a real risk, but Serie A’s primary and only objective is to restart.”

Juventus, chasing their ninth consecutive Serie A title, are top of the league, a point ahead of Lazio.

Malago added the government might also change its stance on a whole squad having to go into a 14-day isolation if a player tested positive for coronavirus.

“I do not know the reason for the [health ministry] decision but I am told it is one that could be reviewed,” Malago said.
