Star players, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gonzalo Higuain are only a few of those players allowed to return to their hometown to be with their families during the coronavirus period.

Paulo Dybala, Daniele Rugani and Blaise Matuidi all tested positive to the potentially deadly Coronavirus and were made to self-isolate while they recover.

The Serie A much like most other football leagues across Europe has been suspended since March when the coronavirus pandemic started sweeping through the country.

There was a lot of uncertainty surrounding the resumption of the League given the scale of the shutdown. However, UEFA has postponed the Champions and Europa leagues, as well as Euro 2020 to give room for the completion of the leagues.

Despite being given so much room to draw the curtains, the French, Dutch and Belgian leagues have been declared over. Their counterparts in Spain, England, Italy and Germany are however exploring the options of resuming.
