thumbnail Hello,

The final weekend of the Italian top-flight season saw a number of starring performances in key games which decided who finished where

It was the final round of Serie A action over the weekend, but a number of firsts were recorded as the 2013-14 campaign came to a dramatic end.

Antonio Rosati was a hero for both Fiorentina and Parma, as his string of saves, most notably from the penalty spot from Alessio Cerci late on, ensured that Torino fell short of a Europa League-clinching win at the Artemio Franchi.

Genoa sneaked past Roma thanks in large part to the performance of Sime Vrsaljko, while Henrique was one of many Napoli stars as they ended the season with a 5-2 win against Verona. Catania waved goodbye to Serie A with a win over Atalanta, achieved off the back of a strong performance by Ciro Capuano, and Boukary Drame starred in Chievo's come-from-behind success against Inter.

Jasmin Kurtic gave Torino a slither of hope in the European race with a stunning late free-kick at Fiorentina, and Nigel de Jong was a scorer for the second time in three weeks as Milan also fell short despite beating Sassuolo 2-1. Claudio Marchisio, meanwhile, put the icing on the cake for Juventus as they surpassed the 100-point mark with a 3-0 win over Cagliari.

Chievo stunned Inter thanks to two Victor Obinna goals, while Amauri was Parma's Euro hero in scoring the two goals against Livorno which blasted the Crociati to the Europa League. But the personal headlines went to Antonio Di Natale, who netted a hat-trick in what could be his final ever game of football to earn Udinese a 3-3 draw with Sampdoria.
