Good News for Ndicka, Uncertainty for Roma: Replay Rules Explained After Collapse

AS Roma was fired up after back-to-back wins in the Derby della Capitale and the Europa League quarter-final away to Milan. With the second leg coming up on Thursday, there was some squad rotation but draws from Juventus and Bologna gave them the opportunity to close on the top four.

The match against Udinese hit an unfortunate pause after Evan Ndicka was stretchered off the pitch after collapsing with reported chest pain.



The Ivorian defender gave a semi-thumbs-up to his teammates as he was carried into the tunnels, but play remained paused for well over 10 minutes before the officials suspended the match. If you’re betting online, you should expect at least another goal on the replay.

The Serie A rules differ from those of the Premier League, where a suspended match must be replayed in full at a later date mutually agreed by the two clubs.

As per Serie A regulations, suspended matches must continue from the minute the game was originally halted. The game must also continue with the same line-ups, and players who were substituted off will not be able to re-enter.

According to soccer news today Evan Ndicka did not suffer any cardiac issues, just a collapsed left lung, and is expected to return to action in Serie A for Roma in around three to four weeks.


Scudetto Showdown on Monday: Inter Aims for Historic Title Against AC Milan

Inter could mathematically seal their 20th Scudetto on April 22nd at San Siro, in a true Derby della Madonnina against AC Milan, a golden opportunity to lift a historic title that has never happened in a match between Inter and Milan.

Also, this kind of match has never been played on a Monday before, but it will be this time as Milan has a crucial Europa League quarter-final match on the preceding Thursday.

The leaders are priced at +111 on the three-way moneyline to beat their city rivals, according to the latest soccer odds.


Win or Go? Roma Rematch Holds Key to Pioli’s Future at AC Milan

The future of Stefano Pioli is still shrouded in doubt as the coach divides opinion at Milan ahead of the decisive Europa League clash with Roma.

The Rossoneri have been in a tense spot since their defeat to AS Roma in the first leg of their European quarter-final clash last week. The result proved painfully disappointing to fans, further increasing the pressure on the Italian tactician.

With only a few months until the summer, there are still no guarantees surrounding Pioli, and multiple reports have suggested that his future with Milan entirely depends on the result of the Europa League quarter-final tie.


Gasperini to Naples? Can Napoli Lure Atalanta Coach for Summer Move?

Gian Piero Gasperini has reportedly risen to become Napoli’s primary target for the summer, so what would it take to agree a deal with the Atalanta coach?

The Italian coach is contracted to the Bergamo outfit until June 2025, earning around $3.5m net per season, a salary he’d expect in the Campania capital, attached to a two or three-year contract.

Napoli will also have to find a way to convince the Percassi family to let Gasperini leave Atalanta in the summer, something that may prove difficult considering his historic work at the club.



Questions of the Day

Will Max Allegri continue with Juventus next season?

Juventus and Massimiliano Allegri must sit down to determine the coach’s future, but there is no guarantee he will remain in charge beyond the summer after another disappointing season.

Allegri’s Juventus contract expires in June 2025.
