Torino end season on high note with win over Lazio

Rome - Torino finished their exciting campaign in fine fashion on Sunday with a 3-1 win over Lazio on the final day of the Serie A season.

Quickfire goals just after the break from Iago Falque and Sasa Lukic set Walter Mazzarri's side, who a few weeks ago were pushing for Champions League football, on their way.

Former Toro man Ciro Immobile pulled one back for Lazio with a super strike in the 66th minute, but with 10 minutes left Lorenzo De Silvestri clipped home on the rebound to seal the points and keep Torino seventh, level on 63 points with Roma ahead of the capital club's match with Parma.

Later on Juventus, long-crowned champions for the eighth year in a row, end the Massimiliano Allegri era at Sampdoria, after which an eventful evening is on the cards at both ends of the table.

Atalanta, Inter Milan, AC Milan and Roma -- who are also bidding farewell to captain and local hero Daniele De Rossi -- duke it out for the final two top-four positions, with Atalanta favourites to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in their history.

Meanwhile Serie A's head-to-head tiebreaker format means that 15th-placed Fiorentina are in real danger of being relegated.

The Tuscan outfit are three points ahead of 18th-placed Genoa ahead of the pair's do-or-die clash in Florence -- but have lost five straight in the league and haven't won a game in any competition since mid-February, despite the return of Vincenzo Montella as coach last month.

Should they lose to Genoa and Udinese, who are level on 40 points with Fiorentina, not lose to Cagliari and 17th-placed Empoli win at Inter, the 'Viola' would go down for the first time since bouncing back from bankruptcy in the early part of this century.

They can also go down if Genoa beat them by two clear goals, Udinese lose to Cagliari and Empoli beat Inter, as they would be overtaken by Empoli and lose a three-way tie-break with Udinese and Genoa.

Fiorentina could join in Serie B already-relegated Chievo, who ended a miserable season in the worst possible fashion when they set an embarrassing points record thanks to a drab goalless draw at also-down Frosinone.

Chievo, who had three points deducted for false accounting before the start of the season, ended the campaign with 17 points following Saturday's non-event at the Stadio Benito Stirpe.

That is the lowest in the three-points-for-a-win era since the league returned to 20 teams in 2004, with Pescara getting 18 in 2016/17.
