Udinese Vs Sampdoria
Udinese go into this fixture after a respectable draw against Verona. Neither side have much left to play for as they both sit comfortably in the middle of the table. I expect an open game with both teams aiming to give their fans a something to cheer for before the season ends. However, I expect Udinese to use their home ground to their advantage and get a result which will secure 12th place.
Catania Vs Atalanta
Two impressive wins in their last two was not enough to keep Catania in this division. Atalanta piled on the misery on AC Milan last week and I expect them to take that positive energy into this game. Catania will surely be demoralised following confirmation of their Serie B status next year but will give a respectable performance following their decent recent form. Score Draw.
Genoa Vs Roma
Roma have had an impressive season, being pipped to the title by this Juventus side who look a class above everybody else. To some extent, Roma have been the surprise package this season. I expect Roma to have too much quality for Genoa to deal with, a comfortable away win is expected.
Juventus Vs Cagliari
Juventus have dominated this league from start to finish. They are going into this game with the chance to surpass the 100-point mark. Conte will ensure that his side to not take this game lightly as they will aim to finish this season on a high. The undoubted difference in quality is clear, and I fully expect Juventus to breeze past Cagliari in this game.
Chievo Vs Inter
Chievo will be relieved to have sealed their Serie A status, despite a late push from Catania. Inter have been hot and cold all season, and there is a sense of unpredictability prior to every game. Neither team have anything to play for, but Inter have the edge in terms of personnel and I expect they will push-on from their impressive win against Lazio and just win this one.
Fiorentina Vs Torino
Fiorentina will be proud of their Serie A campaign, finishing fourth despite a long injury list to key players. They will be relieved to have secured their position last week following a couple of unexpected defeats. Torino are unbeaten in six and this could be an end to end game with both sides looking to please their fans on the final day. Score draw.
Lazio Vs Bologna
Bologna were unable to muster up a late surge in this season’s relegation battle and haven’t won in their last 5. Lazio will look to recover from their poor performance last week against Inter which would have upset their fans. I expect the combination of quality and home advantage will give Lazio the edge and a therefore a comfortable home win is expected.
AC Milan Vs Sassuolo
This fixture matches up one team on a high following their impressive late survival run, whilst another European giant in the form of AC Milan who have suffered somewhat of a demise in recent seasons. I expect Sassuolo to come into this game in good spirits and take advantage of the low morale within the Milan camp. Milan will look to end their poor season with a win, but the drive and determination has not been present and has cost them all season. Score Draw expected.
Napoli Vs Verona
Everything in the game points towards a Napoli win. Benitez can be satisfied with his serie A campaign, however they will look to push on from this position next season. Verona will certainly be no pushovers in this game as they aim to claim 6th place in that congested area of the table. However, the home advantage will give Napoli a narrow win in what I expect to be an exciting, open match.
Parma Vs Livorno
Livorno cannot pick up a point at the moment. They sit at the bottom of the table and the team looks demoralised and out of sorts. Parma are involved in that top 6 battle and will do everything they can to try finish as high up the table as possible. Livorno have obviously written off this season I expect Parma to give them their last dent to their confidence with a comfortable home win.
