All times stated are UK

  1. Champions League places update

    So as it stands after about 33 minutes both Milans will take up the remaining two Champions League places.

    So don’t worry Luciano Spalletti.

  2. GREAT SAVES!

    Inter 0-0 Empoli

    Inter keep knocking.

    Marcelo Brozovic pays an extra five euros as his ball travels express delivery towards the Empoli goal but Bartlomiej Dragowski produces a great save.

    The Polish keeper then betters the previous save to tip over Stefan De Vrij’s goalbound header

  3. GOAL – SPAL 1-2 AC Milan

    Mattia Valoti

    Mattia Valotiproduces a beautiful flicked header which glides into the far corner to bring the home side back into the game.

  4. GOAL – SPAL 0-2 AC Milan

    Frank Kessie (23 mins)

    Ivorian Frank Kessie tuns in the area and fires low past Emiliano Viviano.

    Milan are cruising in Ferrara, and cruising into the Champions League.

  5. GOAL – Atalanta 0-1 Sassuolo

    Domenico Berardi (20 mins)

    Another bigger plot twist.

    As it stands, it’s AC Milan and city rivals Inter into the Champions League.

    Poor Atalanta.

  6. Small plot twist

    SPAL 0-1 AC Milan

    Keeper Gianluigi Donnarumma picks up an injury and is replaced by Pepe Reina, formerly of Napoli and Liverpool fame.

  7. GOAL – SPAL 0-1 AC Milan

    Hakan Calhanoglu (18 mins)

    Huuuuuuge!

    Hakan Calhanoglu,who tested the SPAL goal earlier, sweeps in low from just inside the area.

    As it stands AC Milan will finish third and most definitely in a Champions League spot.

    Atalanta will take the fourth spot.

  8. Post update

    SPAL 0-0 AC Milan

    It’s Milan again.

    This time Hakan Calhanoglu hits a stinger from inside the area that Emiliano Viviano punches away.

    Basically, he just put his hands in front of him and hoped for the best.

  9. Post update

    Inter 0-0 Empoli

    Inter are all over Empoli at the moment – Ivan Perisic launches one from 20 yards that Bartlomiej Dragowski does well to get a hand to.

    Great stop.

  10. Champions League places update

    It’s still 0-0 in the matches involving third-place Atalanta and sixth-place Roma – as things stand Atalanta will qualify for the Champions League for the first time, and Inter will join them.

  11. Milan’s Krzysztof Piatek, who we know has a heck of a strike, fires low at goal but Emiliano Viviano saves with his feet.

    Moments later, Fabio Borini fires into the side-netting from just inside the area.

  12. Post update

    Inter 0-0 Empoli

    Radja Nainggolan has a pop at goal from about 20 yards out but his dipping half-volley is well held by keeper Bartlomiej Dragowski.

    Good effort though.

  13. A reminder

    And then it goes down to head-to-heads…

  14. KICK-OFF

    We are under way in the final set of games of the 2018-19 Serie A season.

  15. It’s a goodbye from him…

    Roma v Parma (19:30 BST)

    After 18 years at the club it’s farewell to World Cup-winning midfielder Daniele De Rossi.

    It will be an emotional night, and more so if Roma sneak into a CL spot.

  16. Post update

    SPAL v AC Milan (19:30 BST)

    Some of the SPAL players are holding their babies as the pre-match anthem is played.

    Is that something for post-match? I like it though.

  17. Post update

    SPAL v AC Milan (19:30 BST)

  18. Correct

    Inter v Empoli (19:30 BST)

  19. Will they make history?

    Atalanta v Sassuolo (19:30 BST)

  20. Earlier…

    Juventus finished their championship-winning season in style… with a 2-0 defeat at Sampdoria.

    Both of Sampa’s goals came in the final few minutes with both Gregoire Defrel and Gianluca Caprari bagging.

    They finish ninth while Juve finish on 90 points with two defeats in their last five matches. Fair to say they took their feet off the gas.
