Serie A season comes to an end with last day treble

| 18.05.2014

The curtain falls on the 2013/14 Serie A campaign and you can enjoy a special enhanced 2/1 treble with Coral, which includes home wins for Napoli against Verona, AC Milan over Sassuolo and Lazio against Bologna.

Napoli v Verona
Napoli are already guaranteed to finish in third place and therefore have qualified for next season’s Champions League.

Rafa Benitez’s side have picked up 75 points from their 37 games and are unbeaten in their past six games, with four wins and two draws.

The home team have already enjoyed great success this season, following their Coppa Italia victory against Fiorentina at the start of the month.

Napoli must suffer the consequences of their fans behaviour from that day, though, as they take on Verona behind closed doors.

Visitors Verona had been expected to struggle this campaign, following their promotion last term, but have proved the critics wrong and currently sit in ninth place.

Having joined the club in the summer, Gonzalo Higuain has enjoyed his debut season at Napoli with 17 league goals to his name.

The Argentina international is 11/4 to score the first of the game, and odds-on at 8/13 to net anytime.

AC Milan v Sassuolo
AC Milan face the very real prospect of heading into the 2014/15 season without being in any European competition.

They sit in eighth place, with 54 points, and must hope they can win and Parma and Torino lose in order to finish in the final qualifying spot in sixth.

Further question marks remain over whether this could be manager Clarence Seedorf’s final game in charge, with reports linking youth team coach Flippo Inzaghi with the role.

Seedorf only moved into the position back in January after replacing Massimiliano Allergi, who had left the club in 11th place.

Visitors Sassuolo looked to be heading for relegation until an impressive turn around in form, which included five victories and a draw from seven games, has seen them to safety.

AC have beaten opposition in their previous four home matches all to nil (1-0, 3-0, 1-0, 3-0) and another win and shut out could be on the cards here at 7/5.

Lazio v Bologna
Last weekend’s 4-1 loss to Inter Milan ended Lazio’s slim hopes of qualifying for Europe next season.

That defeat, along with Bologna’s already confirmed relegation, means there isn’t much at stake at in this fixture, although it will be boss Davide Ballardini’s final game in charge.

Lazio are unbeaten in their last five home matches, although it has taken stoppage time equalisers in both their previous two against Verona and Torino, to ensure that run continued.

In fact, only Atalanta have left the Stadio Olimpico with all three points in 2014, which shows the strength of their home form.

Bologna have won just one of their last fourteen league encounters, which is why they will be plying their trade in Serie B next season.

Antonio Candreva is the only Lazio player to reach double figures this term in the league (12), and the Italian is 9/2 to score the first goal of the game.
