MILAN - Lazio's Serie A game with Reggina will be played on Wednesday rather than next Sunday to allow Rome's Stadio Olimpico to be prepared for the Champions League final, the Italian league said in a statement on Monday.
Serie A matches on the penultimate weekend of the season are supposed to be played at the same time so teams do not gain an advantage from knowing other scores.
Despite Reggina being involved in a relegation battle, an exception has been made in this case after UEFA asked for the keys to the Stadio Olimpico seven days before the May 27 final between holders Manchester United and Barcelona.
