Inter vs Udinese
Only a miracle will secure Inter a place in next years Champions League now as they lost on their travels to Genoa in what was a lackluster performance by Mancini’s men. Udinese have finally seemed to have woken up as they won two of their last four games just in time to avoid a late relegation scrape. Inter must bounce back.
Frosinone vs Palermo
Despite taking an early lead Frosinone could do little to hold a resurgent Chievo team at bay and were eventually pummeled 5-1. Palermo came from behind to hold out for an important point as they try and clamber out of the bottom three. This is a crucial game for both sides and I reckon the home side ca win this.
Atalanta vs Chievo
Atalanta have done just about enough to avoid the drop this season and their fans will be demanding an improvement next year. Chievo have surpassed all expectations and as just a handful of points off Europa League football. Close game expected which will end inf a draw.
Bologna vs Genoa
Bologna were ripped to shreds on their travels to Naples on Tuesday night however remain 6 points clear of the bottom three. Genoa rode their luck and made the most of their opportunities as they surprised Inter at Luigi Ferraris to move to 10th in the standings. Draw expected.
Sampdoria vs Lazio
Sampdoria will be pleased with their hard earned draw at Sassuolo while Lazio fought hard but eventually collapsed after being reduced to ten men at the Juventus Stadium. This will be a close game between two struggling sides which I predict will end in a draw.
Torino vs Sassuolo
Torino were moments away from securing a historic victory at the Olimpico until Roma’s legendary talisman Francesco Totti came off the bench to score two in quick succession to send Il Toro back north empty handed. Sassuolo were held at home by Sampdoria but I believe they can leave Torino with three points.
Fiorentina vs Juventus
Fiorentina’s inconsistent season continued as they lost on their travels in Udine to remain in 5th place. Juventus maintained their nine point lead at the top of the Serie A to all but secure their 5th consecutive Scudetto following a comfortable 3-0 win over Lazio. I reckon La Viola will be up for this and Juve will settle for a point.
Roma vs Napoli
Roma will be grateful to veteran front man Francesco Totti who came off the bench to score two in three minutes and spare his sides blushed, even though it seems he will be shown the door this summer. Napoli thrashed Bologna at home however their season’s target of challenging Juve for the league is all but lost as they lie 9 points behind the league leaders. I reckon an exciting draw is on the cards.
Verona vs Milan
Sitting ten points from safety with just five games to go Verona’s fate is all but sealed in what has been a disastrous season for the Veneto side. Milan were extremely poor as they were held at the San Siro by lowly Carpi in what was a bore draw. With nothing but pride to play for I reckon the home side can hold out for a draw.
Carpi vs Empoli
Carpi moved two points above the drop zone after holding Milan at bay while Empoli did just enough to down a sorry Verona side to consolidate their mid-table position. Carpi are still fighting for their lives and I predict a home win.
