Milan, Fiorentina to clash in final European push
May 18, 2013
 Print    Send to Friend

ROME: AC Milan and Fiorentina’s duel for Serie A’s final Champions League place, and a Udinese-Lazio battle for Europa League qualification will bring the curtain down on the Italian season this weekend.

With Juventus having wrapped up their 29th league title two weeks ago, and Napoli securing the second automatic qualifying place for the Champions League, the focus falls firmly on qualifying for Europe.

Milan, crowned European champions seven times, currently sit in third place — nine points behind runners-up Napoli — with a two-point lead over Fiorentina.

The pair’s battle to finish in third has taken a dramatic turn of late, with Fiorentina openly scoffing Milan’s decision to present their new, gold-coloured shirt for next season, complete with an embroidered Champions League logo, on their official website. Fans of the Milan giants would say they have every right to feel confident of a top-three finish as they host a Siena side which, along with Palermo and Pescara, have already been relegated.
