The race for Champions League qualification in Serie A is set to go down to the wire after Udinese leapfrogged Napoli with a 2-0 win over Genoa.

Antonio Di Natale Udinese 2012 - 0

With the two automatic places already claimed by Juventus and Milan, there is one qualification spot up for grabs.

Udinese leapfrogged Napoli into third after they beat nine-man Genoa 2-0 thanks to goals from Antonio Di Natale and Antonio Floro Flores.

Alessandro Diamanti and Matteo Rubin struck for Bologna to beat Napoli 2-0 and send them down to fifth.

Their misery was compounded when Blerim Dzemaili saw red minutes before the full-time whistle.

Fourth-placed Lazio are now two points behind Udinese - and one ahead of Lazio - after Libor Kozak and Lorik Cana notched away at Atalanta to give them a 2-0 victory.

In a topsy-turvy eight-goal thriller at Stadio Renzo Barbera, Fabrizio Miccoli bagged a hat-trick as Palmero drew 4-4 with Chievo.

The relegated pairing of Novara and Cesena met at the Stadio Silva Piola and it was the home side who claimed the spoils as Marco Rigoni netted a treble to secure a 3-0 win.

Earlier in the day Parma picked up three points at Siena, another 2-0 scoreline, with goals from Sebastian Giovinco and Sergio Floccari.

Inter Milan could finish as high as fourth after a 4-2 victory over AC in the Milan derby - a result that also helped Juventus win the league.
