The race for Champions League spots will go down to the wire, with four teams in a three-point radius, and Milan have the toughest run-in, culminating in a showdown with Atalanta.

After Week 32 fixtures were completed this evening, Milan remain in second place on 66 points, followed by Atalanta and Juventus on 65, then Napoli 63.

Lazio have 58 points, but also have a game in hand to be played against Torino, while Roma have fallen behind on 55.

Atalanta have the superior head-to-head record with Juventus, so they are in third place.

Looking at the remaining fixtures, Milan have the toughest run-in to this mini-Scudetto, starting with Monday night’s showdown away to Lazio.

They then host desperate relegation battlers Benevento, visit Juventus, Torino, host another side scrapping for every point in Cagliari and have a final face-to-face with Atalanta in Bergamo.

Juventus can’t celebrate either, as they have old rivals Fiorentina, a visit to Sassuolo, along with head-to-heads against Milan and Inter.

The games against the smaller clubs cannot be taken for granted either, because Cagliari’s two consecutive victories have blown the relegation battle wide open, meaning every point could be precious for them too.
