Atalanta 0 vs. 2 Inter Milan

D’Ambrosio and Young scored in the 1st half as Inter sealed a win on the final day and finish 2nd in the table a point behind Juventus.

The two teams will be playing Champions League football next season. 

Napoli 3 vs. 1 Lazio

Pena gave Napoli the lead in the 9th minute, while Immobile equalised in the 22nd minute for Lazio. Napoli posted a 2nd half comeback in the 2nd half with Insigne restoring Napoli’s lead while Politano got a goal late on.

AC Milan 3 vs. 0 Cagliari

Klavan scored an own goal in the 10th minute while Ibrahimovic and Castillejo scored in the 2nd half to seal a win on the final day for Milan.

SPAL 1 vs. 3 Fiorentina

Duncan gave Fiorentina the lead before D’Alessandro equalised for SPAL in the 39th minute. Fiorentina mustered a late comeback though with Kouame restoring the lead in the 89th minute and Pulgar sealing the win in the 94th minute.
