Rome, February 10:

Serie A leaders Inter Milan face Chievo behind closed doors on Sunday as professional football resumes in Italy.

All domestic matches were suspended last Friday after a policeman was killed and 100 people injured as fans went on the rampage at the Sicilian derby between Catania and Palermo.

Chievo’s stadium is one of five deemed unsafe under strict new security measures introduced by the Italian government to combat football violence and fans have been banned for the match in Verona.

Inter are 11 points clear of second-placed Roma after a record sequence of 14 consecutive Serie A wins.

AC Milan’s new signing Ronaldo could make his debut in front of empty seats with their home against Livorno also being played behind closed doors. The San Siro stadium, which AC Milan share with Inter, could be closed to the public for the rest of the season unless stadium security is updated.
