Lazio are one point behind the league leaders with 62 points from the same number of matches while Inter Milan complete the top-3 with 54 points, having played 25 matches.
The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) has meanwhile confirmed that all its competitions stand suspended at least till 14 June.
