Week 25 of the Italian Serie A did not produce any major surprises. A mild surprise was Atalanta’s 1-0 road loss to Sampdoria. The Genovese side ended Atalanta’s 3 game winning streak as Giampaolo Pazzini scored in his 4th straight game.  Sampdoria now sits 7 points out of relegation on the strength of a 5 game unbeaten streak.

Pazzini’s old team, Fiorentina added some drama to Week 25 with a 2-1 victory over relegation threatened Chievo Verona. Adrian Mutu rescued I Viola again with a late goal deep into 2nd half injury time to get the 3 points and keep I Viola in 4th place. A good result considering their midweek UEFA Cup loss to Ajax.
