As expected Chievo did just enough to hold out for a draw in Sampdoria while Roma were superb as they downed league leaders 3-1 at the Olimpico in what was a great game of football. I reckon the visitors can win this.

Prediction 1-2Ā

Ā Napoli vsĀ Fiorentina

Napoli kept chase with second place Roma following their comfortable 0-5 win in Turin and also secured Champions League for next season. Fiorentina were rewarded for their determination with a hard earned victory over high flying Lazio to climb up to 7th place. Home win expected for the home side.

Prediction – 2-0

Milan vsĀ Bologna

Despite playing second fiddle for most of the encounter Milan fought back late on and snatched an important point in Atalanta as they attempt to secure a Europa League spot. Bologna added more misery to relegated side Pescara with a 3-1 win. Montella’s side should win this.

Prediction – 2-1

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Empoli vsĀ Atalanta

Empoli missed the perfect chance to Ā add another point to their name but front manĀ Pucciarelli missed a crucial penalty as his side eventually lost 3-2 despite an attempt at a late comeback. Atalanta failed to make the most of their chances and were punished late one when Milan found a late equaliser. I am backing the visitors to win this.

Prediction 1-2Ā 

______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Genoa vsĀ Torino

Both sides have had disappointing campaignsĀ considering their pre-season expectations with Genoa sitting just two points above the bottom three, while Torino are most likely going to finish 9th this term. I predict that both sides will settle for a draw.

Prediction 1-1


______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Juventus vsĀ Crotone

Despite being soundly beaten at the Olimpico last weekend, slightly delaying their celebration plans, Juventus bounced back by winning the first of three trophies in what they hope will be a historic treble on Wednesday night after beating Lazio in the Coppa Italia final. Crotone’s recent resurgence might all be in vain as they are likely to lose in Turin and should other results not go their way then they will be the final side to be relegated from the Serie A.

Prediction 2-0

______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Sassuolo vsĀ Cagliari

Sassuolo dumped furtherĀ misery onto Inter as they beat the Nerazzurri 1-2 at the San Siro while Cagliari were close to squandering a three goal lead againstĀ Empoli but managed to hold on by the skin of their teeth to win 3-2. Just one point separates these two sides and that is why I am going for a draw.

Prediction 1-1

________________________________________________________________________________________________

Udinese vsĀ Sampdoria

Both these sides have had pretty average seasons as they occupy 11th and 10th place in the standings respectively and will hope to make the necessary reinforcements over the summer to try and secure Europa League football. Just three points separate these two sides in the Serie A standings and hence I am backing another draw.

Prediction 1-1

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Lazio vsĀ Inter

Despite losing in the Coppa Italia final on Wednesday night Lazio can still look back at this season with great pride as they look set to finish 4th, quite an achievement considering their limited transfer budget. Inter’s season has gone down the drain as they seem to have self-disintegrated with coach Pioli being sacked in recent weeks and they have now not won a league game in almost two months. Home win expected.

Prediction – 2-0

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Pescara vsĀ Palermo

Monday night sees a pretty irrelevant game take place with both sides already relegated and their final placing in the league already set. Do not expect a thrilling encounter as I reckon both sets of players will be pretty demoralised.

Prediction – 1-1
