The battle for safety looks to be a straight fight between Lecce and Genoa. Can either take an advantage from promising Week 35 fixtures?
Giuseppe Sannino and Stefano Pioli have warned their teams that safety is not secure yet.
The Champions League and relegation races are turned upside down by remarkable results, as Fiorentina and Novara shock Roma and Lazio, while Napoli conquer Lecce.
Stefano Pioli says he expects to still be in charge of Bologna next season after masterminding their probable survival.
Stefano Pioli is happy for Bologna to take the role of Scudetto deciders after holding Milan. “We don’t do anyone any favours.”
Massimiliano Allegri will not shelve Milan’s Scudetto dreams despite today’s setback against Bologna. “We might deserve it.”
Milan’s Scudetto hopes hang by a thread, as Zlatan Ibrahimovic snatched the 10-man Rossoneri a last-gasp draw with Bologna.
Milan have Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Robinho and Clarence Seedorf against Marco Di Vaio’s Bologna.
Marco Di Vaio could well be playing in the American MLS next season, admits the Bologna striker’s agent.
Massimiliano Allegri is confident “Milan can win all the remaining games and be ready to take advantage of a Juventus slip-up.”
Stefano Pioli thinks this could be a very unusual end to the season, as tomorrow is “the first of six finals for both Bologna and Milan.”
Alessandro Diamanti could well decide the Scudetto when Bologna take on Milan tomorrow, but admits he’d “prefer the Rossoneri to win it.”
Bologna held out to beat Cagliari 1-0 on Thursday night after Alessandro Diamanti’s free-kick, but the Sardinians did have several good chances to equalise.
Both Bologna and Cagliari go into Thursday’s final game of the midweek round without their star strikers through suspension.
Massimo Ficcadenti believes Cagliari can “make the most of this good period of form” to cause an upset at Bologna on Thursday.
Bologna have hit problems recently and Stefano Pioli urges them to “rediscover that precision” against Cagliari tomorrow.
Alessandro Diamanti has admitted that he’d like to remain at Bologna for the 2012-13 campaign.
Mario Beretta thanks Cesena for their courage, while Stefano Pioli warns Bologna they are not safe yet.
Roma were flattened 4-2 by Lecce and Udinese got back on track against Parma, while 10-man Catania capitulated at Chievo and Siena shocked Atalanta.
Mario Beretta realises Cesena are practically relegated, but hopes to give the fans “something more” with a derby victory over Bologna today.
