Inter vs Empoli
Inter were extremely poor as they failed to really challenge a more determined Lazio side in Rome and were eventually beaten 2-0. Empoli played out a 0-0 bore draw at home to Bologna to maintain their mid-table position and will look to take on as many lessons as they can following their mixed run of form this campaign. Inter have enough to win this.
Bologna vs Milan
Bologna seemed content on playing out a 0-0 draw in Empoli as they are all but safe from relegation and will look forward to more Serie A football next season. Milan were moments away from an embarrassing defeat in what has been a season to forget for the Nerazzurri, as a late Menez penalty secured a point for his side as the game ended 3-3. I reckon the home side have enough to hold out for a point.
Roma vs Chievo
Roma will once again be grateful for the influence of club legend Francesco Totti has on his team, since despite being 39 years old the talisman still has enough vigor to turn the tables in his sides favor as substitute performances in recent weeks have shown. Chievo fought hard and did well to hold a stuttering Fiorentina at home as the Giolloblu consolidate their 9th place position. Home win expected.
Atalanta vs Udinese
Bar a late consolation goal Atalanta failed to really threaten the Napoli backline as they were beaten down south. Udinese lost their 18th game of the season after they were thrashed 1-5 in front of a disgruntled home crowd. Just one point separates these two sides but I reckon the home side can pip this.
Carpi vs Lazio
After their 2-0 loss at the Juventus Stadium Carpi have been dragged into the relegation scrape once again following Palermo’s home win. Lazio showed rare signs of good football as they outplayed a disorganized Inter side at the Olimpico to give their fans something to cheer about after a poor season for the Biancocelesti. I predict an exciting game of football which will end in a draw.
Fiorentina vs Palermo
Fiorentina failed to make the most of their chances as they were held in Carpi as La Viola will most likely finish the season in 5th place. Palermo did their survival chances a world of good after beating Sampdoria at home to go level on points with 17th place Carpi. I am afraid the Sicilians will have little luck in Florence.
Frosinone vs Sassuolo
Despite playing for their lives Frosinone were undone by a late penalty in what would have been a historic victory for the Serie A newcomers, who are now four points from safety with just two games to go. Sassuolo did just enough to beat an already relegated Verona to all but secure Europa League football for next season. Close game expected which I expect will end in a draw.
Sampdoria vs Genoa
Both sides lost their respective games as Sampdoria were beaten by Palermo and Genoa lost at home after a Roma comeback. With just three points between these two struggling sides do not expect a great Derby della Lanterna however I am sure the game will not be missing any of it’s usual ferocity.
Verona vs Juventus
Verona were the first side in the league to be relegated from the Serie A in what has been a dismal season for the Gialloblu. Juventus are in party mode after securing their 5th consecutive title two weeks ago and I have no doubt they will win comfortably in this David vs Goliath affair.
Torino vs Napoli
Torino romped to a 1-5 win in Udine as they hope to end the season in a mid-table position after a very poor start. Napoli won at home a week after conceding the league to rivals Juventus. With Roma breathing down their backs for the all imporant second place Sarri’s men still need a win and I reckon they have enough to do so.
