Published:

MILAN (AP) -- AC Milan's match against Napoli has been brought forward to Sunday afternoon because of adverse weather conditions, while Cesena vs. Catania and Roma vs. Inter Milan will also be played earlier than scheduled.

Milan vice president Adriano Galliani had written to the league asking it to postpone the match because of heavy snow, with Milan experiencing its worst weather in nearly 30 years.

The league has now decided to play the game at 3 p.m. local time (1400 GMT) instead of 8:45 p.m. (1945 GMT). Cesena's and Roma's games will be played at 3 p.m. local time on Saturday.

Juventus' game at Parma on Tuesday was postponed because of snow, as were three of Wednesday's games: Atalanta vs. Genoa; Bologna vs. Fiorentina; and Siena vs. Catania.
