Third place up for grabs on final day in Serie A

Milan, Italy (Sports Network) - With few things still left to be determined on the final weekend in Serie A, the race for the third and final Champions League spot will take center stage on Sunday.

AC Milan enters the weekend two points clear of fourth-place Fiorentina, and the Rossoneri will visit relegated Siena knowing that a win would be enough for the club to return to Europe's premier club competition.

A win over Roma last weekend would have locked up third place, but Milan was held to a 0-0 draw by Roma, while Fiorentina stayed in the hunt with a 1-0 victory over Palermo.

The Viola needs a slip up by Milan on Sunday coupled with a win against last- place Pescara to have a chance at finishing fourth, otherwise a spot in the Europa League awaits.

Udinese and Lazio are battling for fifth place and the final Europa League spot with Udinese holding a two-point advantage ahead of Sunday's action.

Lazio needs a win at mid-table Cagliari to have a chance at fifth place, and the club will also be hoping that Udinese falters at Inter Milan, which is winless in its last four games and will try to end a disappointing season on a winning note.

Champions Juventus visit Sampdoria in the lone match on Saturday as Juve tries to finish the campaign on a 13-game unbeaten streak.

Napoli has already secured second place and travels to Roma, Atalanta hosts Chievo, Parma visits relegated Palermo, Torino entertains Catania and Genoa invades Bologna after securing its safety last weekend.
