There are five Serie A games to enjoy on Saturday as the final week of the season splits across two days.

This is what went down tonight …

Brescia 1-1 Sampdoria

Scorers: Torregrossa (pen) 49′; Leris 41

Brescia failed to end their disappointing Serie A return with a win as they drew 1-1 at home to Sampdoria, who could have won it were it not for a missed Fabio Quagliarella penalty in the early kick-off.

Milan 3-0 Cagliari

Scorers: Klavan OG 10′, Ibrahimović 55′, Castillejo 57

Milan’s second half surge this season continued as they ended the season on a high by easing past Cagliari at San Siro. The Rossoneri finish sixth in Serie A, with the Isolani sliding to 13th after a poor second half to the campaign.

Atalanta 0-2 Inter

Scorers: D’Ambrosio 1′, Young 20′

In a straight shootout for second spot in Bergamo on Saturday night, it was Inter who took it thanks to first half goals from Danilo D’Ambrosio and Ashley Young firing them past free-scoring Atalanta, who they held scoreless.

Juventus 1-3 Roma

Scorers: Higuaín 5′; Kalinić 23′, Perotti (pen) 44′, 52′

Champions Juventus concluded their campaign with a disappointing defeat at home to Roma, although their weakened line-up is evidence that they’re focused on Europe, with that loss meaning that they have ultimately secured the Scudetto by a single point.

Napoli 3-1 Lazio

Scorers: Fabian 9′, Insigne (pen) 54, Politano 92”; Immobile 22′

Golden Boot winner Ciro Immobile’s bid to become the single season Serie A goal king came up marginally short in his hometown as he could only manage one to equal the record (at 36) as his side were beaten at the Stadio San Paolo, forcing them to settle for a fourth place finish.
