But the Italian news agency ANSA reported that it had obtained the report issued by the health authorities of Naples, and it did not include banning the team from traveling.
It claimed that the report recommends that Napoli isolate some players and coach Gennaro Gattuso, but did not include any travel bans.
Juventus had announced that he was heading to the match stadium tomorrow and would play the match normally due to the lack of any decisions from the Italian Federation.

According to the Italian League, the match will be counted in favor of Juventus, 3-0, if Napoli does not come to the stadium.
