Udinese would have earned at least one point from Torino if they were only able to convert chances properly. Instead, they conceded two goals and scored none. The defeat counts as their fourth consecutive non-winning result following downfalls from Fiorentina and Juventus as well as a draw with Napoli. They are currently ranked 15th, 11 points clear of the drop zone.

 

As expected, Livorno extended their winless form to a seventh straight week after they scored zero goals and conceded two to Lazio. The relegation candidates just periled their chance of securing their seeding for next season and will find it tremendously hard to turn around the deficit with only a few weeks remaining in the competition.

 

Sports betting tip: Udinese and Livorno will each drop two points.

AC Milan vs. Internazionale

Match Date:  04 May 2014 (local)

Match Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza

 

Milan’s loss to Roma came as a setback in their aspirations for a Europa League appearance next season. The goalless result added two negative goals to the side’s goal difference which consequently locked their score to 51 points. Ranking 10, Rossonerri are level on points with ninth placers Parma, beaten only by the latter by one goal.

 

Inter had their most recent battle end in a deadlock with Napoli. Sharing the points with the current third placers indicate tight rivalry. The sides only added one point in their score and did not affect much their ranking in the table. Inter are already set for a Europa League seeding for next season, but extra effort must still be exerted in order to protect it.

 

Online betting tip: This derby between Milan and Inter will result in a stalemate.
