Among Other Serie A Football Today – An Asymmetric Fixture List
According to Sky, the second round is asymmetrical in terms of days when we compare it to the first round.
The only criterion upheld is a gap of at least eight games between the first and second legs.
As a result, Serie A will now be following in the footsteps of other European leagues. The English Premier League, Spain’s La Liga, and France’s Ligue 1, have all previously also implemented this system.
However, Italy is different from the other nations in that the return matches will be different from the first legs.
Nonetheless, the same number of games will play at the same time, only in a different order.
