As it stands arguably the greatest player of all time, Cristiano Ronaldo, will be playing in the Europa League next season! Juventus have to win and they have to rely on results going their way to make it to qualify for the Champions League.
Saturday 22 May
Crotone will be playing next season in Serie B but they haven’t stopped trying to perform at their best having drawn their last game and winning their previous. They face a Fiorentina team who would also like to finish the season on a high note. With both teams having nothing but pride to play for, the Half Time Draw at 14/10 looks the way to go here.
The hosts escaped the drop in fine style after going on a seven-game undefeated streak, winning four and drawing three of those encounters. They face a Genoa side who have one win in their last four encounters. With Cagliari wanting to end the season on a high, I think they’ll go on to win this encounter. Back the hosts at 11/10.
Sampdoria will definitely be finishing in ninth in this season, with Parma getting the drop. This looks to be another dead rubber. Pride will however be on the line for this Parma side as they will want to show off their skills one last time. The away team is tentatively tipped at 28/10.

Inter Milan 7/20
It’s going to be a massive party for the blue half of Milan as Inter will lift the trophy after they face Udinese. Inter’s winning streak finally came to an end after they went down 3-2 to Juventus. They face an Udinese side that are without a win in their last four encounters. Inter should really win this quite comfortably, add them to all multiples.
AC Milan 14/10
Atalanta take on AC Milan in what looks to be a must-win for both teams. Atalanta’s strong goal difference may be enough to see them into the Champions League spots while AC Milan will be needing to win this to be 100% secure, as anything but a win will see them looking over their shoulders to see what the other teams are up to. With both teams hungry for success. Both Teams To Score (Yes) looks a banker at 4/10.
Juventus must win and hope other results go their way in order to make the Champions League. Bologna are winless in their last five games and really look like they have nothing to play for. With that in mind Juventus should really win this quite easily. Bank on the away side.
Lazio will be playing in the Europa League next season and will be looking to end their season on a high. The visitors face eighth-placed Sassuolo here. This really looks like a nightmare to call on paper but with both teams not having much to play for, the Half Time Draw looks the way to go here at 14/10.
Benevento have a massive goal difference to overturn if they are going to stay in the Serie A. If nothing changes, they will have to win 17-0 in order to stay up. Torino, who are one place above them on the table look to have done enough to stay in the top flight and they won’t be taking any risks here. The draw looks like a good bet at 28/10.
Roma have had a disappointing season when looking at their regular high standards and they should be looking to end the season with a flourish here. A win for Spezia can see them move right up into 12th depending on how results go elsewhere. Roma look to have too much class and should win this.
Hellas Verona 9/1
If Napoli win, they will be in the Champions League, if they don’t win, they will be relying on Juventus losing to make the top four. Whether Hellas Verona win or lose, they look guaranteed to stay in tenth so the willingness to win should be far greater for hosts here. Add Napoli to all multiples!
