Roma Awarded Three Points For Cagliari Postponement

Roma have been awarded a 3-0 win at Cagliari after Sunday’s game was postponed because of safety concerns. The match was set to take place at the Is Arenas in Sardinia, but behind closed doors as the stadium had yet to receive its safety certificates.

However, Cagliari released a statement on their website, from President MassimoCellino, who invited season ticket holders to attend the game anyway.

That stance resulted in the Cagliari Prefecture and local police to call off the encounter due to public order concerns. Given that the cancelation was as a result of Cagliari’s actions, Roma’s appeal to be awarded a 3-0 win has been granted.

Cagliari also run the risk of further punishments, from being forced to play even more games behind closed doors or a points penalty.

The win sees Roma, who host Sampdoria on Wednesday, move up to fifth place in the Serie A table.
