Juventus failed to seal the title victory after losing at SPAL, while Napoli beat Chievo to relegate the Flying Donkeys, and also keep the Bianconeri’s champagne on ice.

Inter, AC Milan and Roma all got crucial wins in the race for a top four finish, as Lazio lost to the Rossoneri and Atalanta drew with Empoli, after firing an astonishing 47 shots on goal during the game.

There was also a huge win for Sampdoria in the Derby della Lanterna against Genoa, as they bring themselves back into European contention.
