Their pursuers, AS Roma, applied the pressure by taking a 1-0 lead at Catania Calcio in the 8th minute. A Roma win and an Inter draw would have sent the crown to the capital city, but with their title hopes dashed once Inter took a 2-0 lead, Roma surrendered a late equalizer to draw 1-1.
The day's other significant result saw Fiorentina hold off AC Milan for fourth place and a spot in next year's Champions League. Milan trailed Udinese 1-0 at the half, but four second-half goals sparked a 4-1 rout. That put the pressure on Fiorentina to get a win at Torino, and Pablo Osvaldo's 76th minute strike was all the Viola needed to secure fourth.
