Serie A assembly votes against relegations and assigning Scudetto should season be stopped again, unless mathematically confirmed

Sky Sport Italia have reported that during a Lega Serie A assembly yesterday, 16 out of the 20 clubs voted against relegating the bottom three clubs should the season be interrupted again – unless their relegations are mathematically confirmed.

In the meeting, the clubs also agreed on not assigning the title in this scenario – unless the Scudetto has already been won – a measure supported by Juventus’ Andrea Agnelli. This decision can be interpreted as a rejection of Italian FA chief Gabriele Gravina’s proposal of deciding the final standings using an algorithm based on a weighted average of points won home and away.

A federal council will make a final decision, taking into account the league’s proposals, in a meeting on Monday, in which the league holds three of the votes.
