Milan faces the penultimate day of the Italian championship as leader of the table and with the possibility of leaving their 19th ‘Scudetto’ almost sentenced if they achieve a good result on Sunday at San Siro against Atalanta.

The ‘Rossoneri’ suffered a 5-0 rout against this same rival in 2019, a blow that finally served to wake up the Lombard club. Since then, the situation has changed, and Milan are once again a competitive team.

Stefano Pioli’s players maintain a two-point advantage and the particular difference gained against Inter Milan (2nd, 78 points), and they need four points in the last two games to secure the title.

But they could already be crowned champions of Italy if they beat Atalanta (8th) on Sunday and Inter later fail to win in Cagliari (18th), or if the ‘Rossoneri’ tie but their neighbors lose.

If not, we will have to wait for the last day on May 22 to find out the outcome of this Italian season in suspense, with the visit of Milan to Sassuolo (11th) and Inter-Sampdoria at the Giuseppe Meazza.

In the lowest part of the classification, the day could ratify the ‘express’ return to Series B of Unione Venezia, bottom team that visits Roma (6th) on Saturday, and validate the permanence of Salernitana (17th), who visit Empoli (14º) hours before.

It will be a day of farewells, first of all for Juventus captain Giorgio Chiellini, in his last game in Turin on Monday against Lazio (5th), and also for Lorenzo Insigne, captain of Napoli (3rd) who will play his last game at the Diego Maradona stadium against Genoa (19th). (D)
