The matches closed for spectators include Udinese-Fiorentina on Saturday; Milan-Genoa, Parma-SPAL, Sassuolo-Brescia and Juventus-Inter on Sunday; and Sampdoria-Hellas Verona on Monday.

On Sunday, it was announced that Inter would play a Europa League home match against Bulgar's Ludogorets behind closed doors.
