Ones to watch in Week 34

The Scudetto showdown between Juventus and Napoli will dominate the headlines, but there’s plenty more to get excited about in Week 34 of Serie A.

With five games to go none of the major questions have been settled, with a real battle for the Champions League and Europa League, as well as against relegation.

Here’s what to look out for in Week 34 of Serie A.

Roma must keep their eye on the ball

Roma face the first leg of their Champions League semi-final with Liverpool on Tuesday, but there’s important domestic business to take care of first.

The Giallorossi are locked in a battle for the top four with Lazio and Inter, and can’t afford to slip against Spal this weekend.

Inter will be expected to win at Chievo, and with the Nerazzurri a point behind Eusebio Di Francesco’s side have to do the same on Saturday afternoon.

Benevento’s last stand

We’ve known for some time that Benevento would be relegated, and Saturday night could be the day it’s finally confirmed.

The Streghe are 15 points behind Spal with five games to play, but they face the Spallini in Week 36, so could still mathematically stay up if they win all five of their remaining games.

Realistically there’s no chance of that happening, so tomorrow’s trip to San Siro to face Milan may well be their last stand.

One of the highlights of Benevento’s season was goalkeeper Alberto Brignoli’s last-minute equaliser against the Rossoneri, and only a win would extend their battle, even if only for a few hours.

Inzaghi vs Giampaolo

Two of Serie A’s brightest young coaching talents meet on Sunday afternoon, as Simone Inzaghi’s Lazio welcome Marco Giampaolo’s Sampdoria.

It’s a crucial match for both sides, as the Biancocelesti can’t risk losing ground to either Inter or their city rivals Roma.

Samp, meanwhile, are battling for a Europa League spot, and are only three points behind sixth-place Milan.

Atalanta, Sampdoria and even Torino are still in the picture, and three points here could well be crucial.

Europa League battle in Bergamo

Two of those sides chasing Europa League football face off on Sunday, as Torino travel to Atalanta.

This is really the Granata’s last chance of staking their claim for Europe, with Walter Mazzarri’s side currently lying 10th in Serie A.

Atalanta are just two points behind Milan in sixth, and will hope to put some distance between themselves and Sampdoria.

Scudetto showdown

The biggest match of the season takes place in Turin on Sunday night, as Juventus welcome Napoli to the Allianz Stadium.

The reigning champions hold a four point advantage going into the match, and Maurizio Sarri’s side need a win to knock the Old Lady off her throne.

Juve face Roma and Inter away in their run-in, so if the Partenopei can close the gap to a single point they have a real chance of a third Scudetto.

The Bianconeri are accustomed to these kind of games though, and haven’t lost to Napoli in Turin since 2009.

The result will be crucial in determining where the title ultimately ends up – don’t miss it.
