Juventus have already sealed their ninth Serie A title in a row, but the league’s single-season scoring record could yet be broken and the battle against the drop is going down to the wire.

Here AFP sport looks at five talking points before the final round of Italian top-flight games this weekend.

Ciro Immobile needs just one more goal to equal the scoring record for a single campaign as Lazio make the short journey to Napoli for their final game.

The 30-year-old forward already has 35 goals and can  match Gonzalo Higuain’s record of 36 goals, made playing for Napoli in the 2015-16 season.

Immobile is already basically assured of winning the European Golden Shoe for the continent’s top scorer, having overtaken Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski’s tally of 34 against Brescia midweek.

Lazio are fourth, but still in the running for second place, while seventh-placed Napoli have nothing to play for in the league except defending the record of their former teammate Higuain.

Gennaro Gattuso’s Napoli are also warming up for their meeting with Barcelona in the Champions League last 16, return leg.

Three teams — Inter Milan, Atalanta and Lazio — are in the running for second place.

Inter and Atalanta will go head-to-head in Bergamo with Lazio’s last game at Napoli.

Antonio Conte’s Inter have 79 points, one point ahead of both Atalanta and Lazio, with the northeners ahead of the Romans, who they held 3-3 in the Stadio Olimpico and beat 3-2 at home this season.

“We’re masters of our destiny, second place depends only on us,” said Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini.

Atalanta are also preparing for their Champions League quarter-final clash against Paris Saint-Germain next month in Lisbon.
