Flooding has caused the Serie A match between Napoli and Juventus, due to kick-off on Sunday night, to be postponed.

It is the second top flight match this weekend to fall victim to the weather that saw six people die in Genoa.

The Sunday afternoon clash between Genoa and Inter Milan was also called off on Friday as the port city of Genoa was badly hit by flooding due to heavy rainfall.

The decision was made by local authorities in Naples as both the San Paolo ground and many areas surrounding it are flooded.
