Rome: Serie A administrators insist that the Fiorentina`s home match against AS Roma May 4 should be rescheduled to avoid risks.

The game at Stadio Artemio Franchi was originally meant to be played Saturday May 4 at 19:45 GMT.

But Lega Calcio officials on Wednesday released a statement insisting that the match timings be changed in view of past incidents of clashes between the fans of the two teams.

"The game is at risk with regard to public order," it read. "The rivalry between the two sets of supporters has already resulted in fierce clashes in the past.

"Critically, that will be accentuated with an evening kick off," it said.
