5 things to know about the Italian league
Question of the Day
MILAN (AP) - It might be a clash between the top two teams in Serie A on Sunday, but there is little to play for but pride when newly-crowned champion Juventus visits Roma. However, Juventus is still looking to break a few more records this season, while Roma will be out for revenge.
The other end of the table sees a relegation six-pointer between two of the bottom three clubs as Bologna hosts Catania.
Here are five things to know about this weekend’s matches:
ZANETTI CURTAIN CALL
Inter Milan legend Javier Zanetti will make an emotional final appearance at San Siro on Saturday.
Zanetti has been at Inter for 19 seasons but has confirmed that he will retire from football at the end of the campaign, at the age of 40.
“Yes, of course there will be great emotion inside me,” Zanetti said. “But at the same time I think the most important thing is the aim of the team, which is to win the match and be able to reach our objective of Europa League qualification.
“I hope it can be a great party, but first we have to win the game. Afterward there will certainly be a lot of emotion on my part at being able to thank all my fans.”
Inter hosts Lazio, knowing that victory would all but guarantee it a spot in the next season’s Europa League.
JUVE STILL HUNGRY
The main prize may have been won but newly-crowned champion Juventus visits second-place Roma looking to remain on course for other significant objectives.
Juventus won its third successive Serie A without even kicking a ball last weekend thanks to Roma’s shock 4-1 defeat at Cagliari.
Antonio Conte’s men are now looking to set a new record by breaking the 100-point barrier and they need just four points from their remaining two matches.
