(ANSA) - Rome, September 24 - AS Roma on Monday were awarded
a 3-0 win over Cagliari after Serie A's sporting judge ruled the
Sardinian side were responsible for Sunday's Serie A match
between the teams not taking place.
Cagliari's prefect ordered the match not to be played at
the weekend after Chairman Massimo Cellino defied local
authorities by telling home fans to turn up to a match that was
meant to be played behind closed doors.
This was because Cagliari's ground was considered unfit for
use by the public.
Cellino has been in a long dispute with the local
authorities over his team's home ground.
Cagliari played a number of games in Trieste at the end of
last season because of problems with its long-standing home, the
Stadio Sant'Elia.
The team moved to the Is Arenas Stadium in the outskirts of
the Sardinian city this term but the ground is not ready to host
fans despite recent renovation work.
Italian Soccer Federation prosecutors are set to
investigate the scrapping of Sunday's match and Cagliari could
face further punishment.
