8:53 AMa month ago

Calculator on hand

GENOA: If they win, they will climb up to six positions in the table, but then it depends on other results to know how the round will end. In case of a draw, the team would climb one position provided Sampdoria beat Empoli.
FIORENTINA: A win would take Viola into the G4 and overtake defending champions Inter Milan, who face Bologna. To finish in this position it would be necessary to hope for a draw and a defeat for Lazio against Cagliari. If the Viola draw today then they will overtake the team from Rome in case of a biancoceleste defeat.
