The final game week of Italy’s top flight is arriving this weekend. Still, Inter Milan is on the supreme end with a 10-point lead over the new holders of the second spot, Atalanta. AC Milan’s spot was extorted by Atalanta after the impressive victory against Genoa. Napoli are clinging to the Champions League spot and Juventus are hoping for a turnaround from the Europa League’s spot. Lazio and Roma are occupying the next two spots.
Inter vs Udinese
Inter’s unbeaten 17-game winning streak was distorted by a 3-2 loss to the Old Lady in the away fixture. But the loss has nothing to do with Inter’s position in the table, as they have already secured the position with their string of victories. In this situation, Inter are ready for another home fixture with Udinese at San Siro. Though losing to Juventus, Inter have not deviated from their form, further, Romelu Lukaku’s goal was splendid. Additionally, their performance against AS Roma (3-1) and Sampdoria (5-1) was dominant. Glued at 12th position in the league table, Udinese have gained only a sole win out of the last five games. Tired of repeated losses, their last game of the season is also going to be an arduous job for them.
Speaking of Inter’s team news, Marcelo Brozovic will be out due to the red card. Aleksandar Kolarov and Arturo Vidal are still on the treatment table. Alexis Sanchez’s return will surely gain a goal for the team. Udinese have many serious injury issues, Jayden Braaf and Ilija Nestorovski are efficient scorers who were sidelined in recent matches. Gerard Deulofeu, Mato Jajalo and Ignacio Pussetto are long absentees. With all these injury stories, Udinese are not in the position to win the contention.
Atalanta vs AC Milan
It is a highly anticipated rivalry of the weekend in the Italian Campaign. Atalanta who got the promotion by pushing Milano back in the table is ready to lock horns with the same Rossoneri at the Gewiss Stadium. Milan are already in fear of losing the spot in the top berth, proving themselves against Atalanta is a crucial task for them. Napoli and Milan are tied in the table and Milan’s extraordinary performance will allow them to secure their spot. Atalanta rapidly raised to the top-four, moreover, they are in a 2-point lead over Milan. Reluctant performance is not entertained from their side.
Besides a good league form in the Serie A fixtures, Atalanta were defeated by the Old Lady in the Coppa Italia finals. Following the major disappointment, Gasperini’s men are looking for another vital match. The team should forget the bitterness and should grasp the next opportunity. Milano was not able to score against the Cagliari who are at the risk of relegation. On the other side, a 0-7 against Torino vibes elate quality. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is the only one out from Pioli’s side. Viktor Kovalenko’s muscle injury forces him out of this ultimate game. Comparing both the team, an equaliser might unveil at Gewiss Stadium.
Bologna vs Juventus
Juventus are making their final trip of the season to Stadio Renato Dall’Ara of Bologna. This final fixture will decide the fate of Juve in Europe’s top flight. The 11th-placed Bologna are drowsy after the repeated draws. The Old Lady are cheerful after crowning the Copa Italia title. They made the unbowed Inter leave empty-handed from Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. Sharing the spoils with Verona, Udinese and Fiorentina, Bologna’s form is unstable. The Red card forced Rodrigo Bentancur out from the midfield of Juve. Alex Sandro’s suspension is relaxed. Nicolas Dominguez, Aaron Hickey and Federico Santander will remain on the sidelines from Bologna. Therefore, Juve might save the day in this away fixture.
Napoli vs Verona
Napoli are in a critical position of losing the Champions league spot to Juventus after the final matchup. On top of that, 4th-placed Napoli are facing the 10th-placed Verona at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona. Napoli are in an extraordinary form with nearly no flaws. The 5-1 score against Udinese and 4-1 against Spezia helped Napoli to rise quickly in the league table. After the repeated losses, Verona’s ability slightly grew to share the spoils. The last four of them have three draws. Ronaldo Vieira will miss in their midfield. There will be a scarcity in their own third for Gennaro Gattuso’s side. Faouzi Ghoulam, Kalidou Koulibaly and Nikola Maksimovic are the absentees of back-four. Stanislav Lobotka was recently moved to the sidelines due to coronavirus infection. All said Napoli have enough to defeat Verona.
