Juventus to seal Serie A title

There are two rounds to go in the Italian top flight and the time is as good as ever for Juventus to finally confirm their sixth consecutive Serie A title.

Bianconeri missed two chances against Torino and AS Roma, with a 1-1 draw and a 3-1 defeat, respectively, angering head coach Max Allegri who was disappointed with the level of complacency his team displayed in the last two games.

Juventus are now welcoming relegation-threatened Crotone and will not only secure the title with a win, but they would effectively push their rivals down to Serie B.

A third slip-up on the trot is extremely hard to envisage but Crotone will not lose hope of a sensational win in Turin which would prolong their time in the top flight.

Look no further than a home win in this clash and do not back against the Bianconeri recording a big victory in the clash.

Roma and Napoli continue to fight for the runners-up place currently occupied by Giallorossi. Sitting one point in front of the Partenopei, AS Roma are under pressure to win at Chievo and keep up their momentum after a morale-boosting triumph over Juventus last time out. Expect the team from the Italian capital to record a win in their clash.

As for Napoli, Maurizio Sarri’s men face an even bigger challenge as they prepare to play host to Fiorentina, who still have slim hopes of making it into the Europa League slots. The Partenopei are a force to be reckoned with, however, and chances are rather slim that Viola will be able to mute the high-scoring side.

Lazio are in fourth place and will have no reason to worry about their Europa League involvement as they prepare to face struggling giants Inter Milan.

Atalanta are expected to hold on to their six-point lead ahead of AC Milan in fifth place as one of the most surprising packages of this year’s edition of Serie A travel to Empoli. The Rossoneri, in the meantime, play host to Bologna and are widely expected to secure a win on Sunday afternoon.
