Atalanta vs Inter Milan

The Serie A season draws to a close this weekend for the 2019/20 campaign. Juventus have been crowned champions again, the European spots are all confirmed, and there's one relegation place left to be decided but we'll cover that in our previews for tomorrow's games. For now, it's Atalanta versus Inter Milan in a 7:45pm BST kick-off on Saturday evening at the Gewiss Stadium.

Atalanta have had a season to remember. Champions League qualification has been secured in convincing fashion and after a run of 17 league games unbeaten they stand just one win away from sealing a runners up finish in the top flight of Italian football. Head coach Gian Piero Gasperini deserves all the plaudits with his free-flowing attacking football earning many admirers. You only need to see the goals delivered by the likes of Luis Muriel, Duvan Zapata, and Josip Illicic to see how much of an attacking threat this side has become. The fact no other team in Serie A has won more points in the league than Atalanta since the restart shows how dominant they've been. It's now 7 home wins on the bounce too.

Inter Milan had looked like the biggest challengers to the champions Juventus with Antonio Conte's side starting this campaign so well. Unfortunately, their league form has dwindled and they're now in a battle with Atalanta to seal 2nd place. It's 7 league games unbeaten for the club including being undefeated in their last 5 away league games. However, the club has lost both of its away matches against top four rivals this season so far. It's hard to see them finding something deep to get the win here and seal that runners up spot in the league.

OK, this could be a cracking game to end the campaign. It's a shame there's not something more lucrative such as the league title resting on it but I still think both teams will go out with all guns blazing. This Atalanta side is simply incredible to watch right now but they're up against an Inter Milan team that will provide a stern test. I do feel it's worth backing the home side to get the win given their awesome form, especially at home, since the restart.

Genoa vs Verona

The Italian Serie A season draws to a close today and the epic relegation battle will finally be concluded. Genoa play Verona in this 5pm BST kick-off at the Stadio Comunale Luigi Ferraris knowing that a win will seal their place in the top flight of Italian football for next season. Anything less than a win and it leaves the door open for Lecce to get a result in their match and leapfrog them in the table to survive.

Genoa flirted with relegation last season finishing just one spot above the relegation zone and clearly lessons have not been learned by the club's hierarchy. The club currently sit in 17th place again heading into these final matches and just 1 point above the drop zone. A reliance on 37-year old Macedonian striker Goran Pandev to get their goals has seen them lack the fire power necessary to get results and that hasn't been helped by their leaky defence that has conceded an average of 1.97 goals per game. The team has been unable to make their home ground a fortress either losing 11 of their 18 home league games including losing 5 of their last 7 home league matches. Davide Nicola had a tough job when he came in over the festive period but he's not torn up any trees.

Verona could be the dream killers here. Ivan Juric has led his team to 9th in the table and even though qualification for the Europa League is out of the question they'll be proud of that league position having only been promoted from Serie B via the play-offs last season. The 3-0 win at home against SPAL ended a winless run of 7 league matches but it's this dodgy away form that has been wondering if they can get anything from this game. It's no win in their last 10 away league matches but they have managed to scrape 7 draws from those matches. The team has also lost just 2 of their 21 matches against teams placed lower than them in the table this season.

I'm torn between a home win and a draw in this one. Genoa haven't done anything to make me feel they can get the victory and the added pressure of knowing they need a win to confirm their top flight status could work against them. That being said, Verona have nothing to play for except pride and have hardly been impressive on their travels. I think the lack of fans could help Genoa here because the nerves that can be present in a crowd won't translate onto the pitch. I'm going to back the draw simply because I feel the value is better and it's just as likely to happen as a home win.

Lecce vs Parma

It's judgement day in the Serie A as we enter the final day of proceedings and Lecce know they need a win to stand any chance of staying up in this game against Parma that kicks off at 5pm BST from the Stadio Via del Mare on Sunday afternoon. It's a lot to ask and their relegation to Serie B is looking more than likely to be confirmed come the full-time whistle but who knows?

Lecce will be relying on one of their fellow promoted sides in Verona to help them stay up. A win for the home side here and Verona to get at least a draw against Genoa is the only way that Lecce can stay up. Last season's Serie B runners-up have given it a decent crack this season but a campaign that will be defined by their run of just 1 win in 16 league matches between 25th September and 2nd February could well end in disappointment. 3 wins and 1 draw from their last 7 league games has given them a fighting chance of survival but the damage has already been done. Head coach Fabio Liverani will be asking of one last push from his players here.

Parma might come into this game in a comfortable 11th place but Roberto D'Aversa's side aren't exactly in the best of form right now. A weak run of 7 losses from their last 10 league games has seen them drop off the pace of the Europa League qualification contenders. It's also 3 defeats from their last 4 away league games. Maybe we shouldn't write them off though. 2 wins from their last 3 league games shows they haven't imagined themselves on the beach quite yet and that one defeat was a narrow 2-1 loss against an in-form Atalanta. There have been goals in Parma's games since the restart though with both teams scoring in all of their last 12 league matches so we can expect some action here.

I think the away form of Parma is the telling factor here. I do feel Lecce are slightly too short to back for the home win. Parma have shown in recent games that their fire for the season hasn't completely burned out yet. They'll provide a difficult test for the hosts here and I'm not entirely convinced that the home side will get the win. However, the fact that Lecce have so much riding on a win and Parma are just turning up to fulfil their fixture is likely to make all the difference here.
