A victory at home for Fiorentina caused a little dent in Lazio’s ambitions of finishing in the top four.


Atalanta             1-1         AC Milan

Andrea Conti 44’                       Gerard Deulofeu 87’


Milan got a victory to save themselves from defeat at away to Atalanta. It was the fifth consecutive league match without a victory for AC Milan; 3 losses and 2 draws.

This result will likely allow Atalanta to finish in the Europa League qualification spot.

Empoli remains under the threat of relegation after defeat to Cagliari. The hope for Empoli is that they can find a victory in their last match of the season against Atalanta, or hope that Crotone fails to get a point in their last match of the season.

Roma spoiled the party for Juventus.

A home victory for Roma kept them in the second place spot in the league and four points from the league leaders with two games left.

Juventus will need against  Crotone to wrap the season up. Anything but a victory will open a gap for Roma to make it an interesting final day of the 2016/17 Italian Serie A.
