Lazio and Fiorentina’s under 19 sides played out a 1-1 draw in their top-of-the-table clash in the Campionato Nazionale Primavera.
Cristiano Lombardi put top side Lazio ahead in the first half but a penalty from Luzayadio Bangu leveled things up after the break.
With three games remaining, Lazio sit top on 58 points with Fiorentina behind on 57. Their closest rivals in preventing automatic qualification to the quarter finals is Roma, who sit third on 50 points. Both teams could qualify for the quarter finals next weekend.
In Group B, both AC Milan and Inter Milan look to be heading for the play-off stage as their route to the quarter finals. The two teams sit in 3rd and 4th respectively behind Chievo Verona and Atalanta who currently occupy the top two positions.
Torino have already won Group A but the chasing pack looks very exciting. Juventus are leading the way at the moment but any one out of Empoli, Sampdoria and Novara could easily catch them. Juventus and Sampdoria play each other on 26th April, which could be a decisive fixture.
