AGI – Waiting to know who will be the third team to relegate to Serie B, most of the last day of the Serie A championship has ended. Juve, Italian champion, pulls the plug and loses yet another this post-pandemic recovery. Roma took advantage of this, won 3-1, and confirmed a fifth place which means, with more than one regret, the Europa League.
In the most anticipated match on Saturday, Inter beat Atalanta 2-0 in Bergamo and, in addition to making official the second place, it relaunches itself as the main future alternative to Juventus. The Bergamo players, however, confirm their participation in the Champions League for the second year, this time by third parties in the standings and, despite failing the sensational goal of 100 goals, confirm by far the best attack in Serie A. The head is now turned to the PSG for another historic milestone that makes fans of a city dream that has suffered too much in recent months.
Fourth in the league, unable to keep the rhythm of a game every three days, Lazio closes, 3-1 defeat in Naples. A sign Ruiz, Immobile, Insigne on penalty and Politano. Inzaghi can console himself with the coronation of Ciro Immobile as new top scorer in the league at 37 goals: Higuain’s record was leveled. The Neapolitan team, however, ends up growing a season that started badly but that will be remembered for the conquest of the Italian Cup.
Pioli’s Milan also ends its season by engaging the highest gears. A San Cagliari falls without stimuli and, from the triple whistle, without a coach since President Giulini has decided not to confirm Walter Zenga for the next season. The 3-0 final, the goal of Klavan, Ibrahimovic and Castillejo the scoring, tells well the rossonero domination and the rossoblù scarcity.
In the afternoon, Brescia and Sampdoria had drawn 1-1 for a game that already smelled of a friendly at the end of the season when most of the teams now have little to ask and wearily drag themselves towards the 90th minute. The swallows will start from Serie B while the Blucerchiati wait to know if Ranieri will still sit on Marassi’s bench.
Now all the attention is paid to the two matches that will decide who between Lecce, at home with Parma, and Genoa, which hosts Verona, will conquer a painful salvation and who will sink into the cadet series. The Spal-Fiorentina, Bologna-Turin and Sassuolo-Udinese program close. At stake is only the final position on the grid of this very strange Serie A for teams already projected to next year.
