27 July 2016
With the identity of the Bianconeri’s first opponents of the 2016/17 Serie A season confirmed as Fiorentina last week in Milan, the league’s governing body (Lega Serie A) has announced today the definitive kick-off times for the opening two weekends of the campaign.
As a result, both of the reigning champions’ opening matches have been brought forward. Massimiliano Allegri’s men will now begin their title defence against the Viola on Saturday 20 August (20.45 CEST kick-off).
Their second fixture will be played the following week away at Lazio on 27 August (18.00 CEST kick-off.)
