ACF Fiorentina vs FC Bayern Munich: Weather Update

There has been some reporting coming out of Italy this morning about a possible cancellation of the match due to inclement weather conditions. Fiorentina has posted this page on their site, indicating that the pitch is properly heated and there is currently no risk to the match.

But the weather is going to be ridiculously bad, regardless. At 17:30 CET, a rain/snow mix is reported, with temperatures hovering just above freezing. Winds are currently reported at 20mph/32kph gusting to 31mph/50kph. Pro cyclist Robbie Hunter, scheduled to fly from Zurich to Peretola Airport in Florence today, tweeted that his flight was diverted to Pisa’s Galileo Galilei airport due to wind conditions in Florence.

Theories will abound about who gains an advantage from the situation, but one thing seems certain: We’re going to see Robben’s long-johns one more time.
