Zlatan IbrahimovicInter Milan are crowned Serie A champions, whilst arch rival Milan miss out on the UEFA Champions League.

Parma 0-2 InterMilan

In a thrilling finale to the Serie A, Inter Milan powered by Zlatan Ibrahimovic claimed the Scudetto by beating Parma.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the hero of the day. Still recovering from a knee injury, he came off of the bench to score the two goals that won the league.

Whilst Inter were celebrating, Parma were in tears as the defeat signalled their relegation from Serie A.

Catania 1 Roma 1

Roma who were trailing Inter in the league by just one point, needed to better Milan’s result to win the Scudetto and started perfectly when Mirko Vucinic put Roma ahead after just 8 minutes with a superb sole effort.

However, once news filtered through that Inter Milan had broken the deadlock at Parma, they seemed to take their foot off of the pedal and Catania equalised through Jorge Martinez on 85 minutes. The draw ensured Catania top flight football next season.

Torino 0 Fiorentina 1

Fiorentina also left it late to secure Champions League qualification. Argentine born Pablo Daniel Osvaldo scored the all important winner on 76 and boy was it a cracking overhead kick. Fiorentina’s win rendered Milan’s result redundant.

AC Milan 4 Udinese 1

Milan new that they must win this one and hope Fiorentina dropped ppoints to climb above them and squeeze into the Champions League spot, it wasn’t to be and AC Milan will now compete in the UEFA Cup. They did go out in style though, going a goal down just after half an hour they fought back with goals from youngster Alexandre Pato (48), and then the veterans; Filippo Inzaghi (59), Cafu (79) and Clarence Seedorf (88).



Empoli 2 Livorno 1

Due to Catania’s late equaliser against Roma, Empoli’s win was not enough to avoid the drop. Knowing they must win to have any chance of protecting their Seria A status, Empoli got off to the perfect start. Antonio Busce socre after just 10 minutes, then on 55 minutes Luca Saudati doubled the lead for Empoli. Alessandro Diamanti got one back for Livorno seven minutes from time, to test Empoli’s nerves, but the result made no difference in the end.

Atalanta 2 Genoa 0

With nothing to play for but fans pride, Sergio Floccari put the home side ahead on 32 minutes. Things got easier for Atalanta when Genoa went first down to 10 men as Danilo Sacramento saw red on 65, then on 78 Omar Milanetto joined him for an early bath. Atalanta made sure of the points with seconds to go, substitute Michele Marconi getting the second goal.

Cagliari 2 Reggina 2

Again neither side had anything at stake here, both sides having secured their league status in the last round. It was perhaps a fitting scoreline, with goals from Larrivey 18, putting Cagliari ahead. Nicola Amoruso got things level on 55, then Cagliari went ahead again courtesy of Bianco before the veteran striker known as ‘Dynamite’, Amoruso got his second from the spot with 4 minutes to go.

Lazio 2 Napoli 1

A drab end of season game saw Lazio take the points in what looks to be coach Delio Rossi’s last game at the helm of Lazio. Tommaso Rocchi put Lazio ahead on 14 minutes and then Fabio Firmani doubled up on 71 minutes. Maurizio Domizzi got the consolation on 82 minutes.

Siena 2 Palermo 2

Siena beat their Serie A points record with a respectable haul of 43 points with this draw. Middlebrough flop Massimo Maccarone got the first and last goal for Siena, but Palermo replied first from Serb Bosko Jankovic and the second from Fabrizio Miccoli.
