The coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic had caused a complete standstill in the world of sport with a majority of the leagues being suspended due to the outbreak, with the footballing action only starting to resume at present.
The Italian Serie A too was affected by the pandemic, though it is set to restart on June 20 after the footballing and government authorities gave the go ahead, though the games will be played behind closed doors without fans in attendance.

League leaders and defending champions, Juventus are reportedly trying to create ways of adding some excitement in an empty stadium and as per Corriere dello Sport, one of the methods being proposed is to project a hologram of superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo and his fellow team-mates across the empty stadium.
These measures though are yet to be confirmed by the club management, as they want to put on a show without distracting the players on the pitch. The Bianconeri will not be the only club looking to make matches more exciting in the absence of fans – with German side Borussia Monchengladbach are filling their stadium with cardboard cut-outs of fans during their games.
While the major footballing leagues resuming action is good news, it is still unclear as to when fans will be allowed back into stadiums to watch games live.
