Mauricio Sarri’s squad finished ahead of their neighbor and closest rival, the Portuguese Jose Mourinho’s Roma, who won 3-0 over Torino on Friday.

The Argentinian Giovanni Simeone in the sixth minute and Kevin Lasagna in the 14th put the visiting team ahead. However, the Cape Verdean Jovane Cabral closed the gap two later and, half an hour later, the Brazilian Felipe Anderson established the equalizer.

Already in the complementary part, the Spanish Pedro Rodríguez scored the third goal of the Roman squad (minute 62), but that target did not give victory to Lazio because the Cameroonian Martin Hongla (m. 76) established a new tie, the final three .

The equalizer is enough for Lazio to finish in fifth place with a point more than Roma, who will also play the Europa League next year.

Fiorentina beat Juventus 2-0 this Saturday (2-0) and finished in seventh place in the Italian Serie A, which allows them to play the Conference League next season to the detriment of Atalanta, beaten 0-1 by Empoli .

Fiorentina achieved success thanks to a goal from Alfred Duncan, who beat Mattia Perin in added time of the first half (minutes 45+1) and in the final stretch with a penalty converted by Nicolás González (90+2).

For its part, Atalanta allowed a Leo Stulac goal 10 minutes from the end to fall to Empoli and finish eighth in the table outside of European tournaments.

Genoa said goodbye to Serie A with a 0-1 loss at the Luigi Ferraris stadium against Bologna, which added the three points after three games without a win.

The Gambian Musa Barrow at minute 66 achieved a victory that had been denied to the team trained by the Croatian Sinisa Mihajlovic for a month.
