Napoli fans will have to wait another day to celebrate their third Serie A title after Wednesday’s results, as second-placed Lazio beat Sassuolo 2-0.

Luciano Spalletti’s team needs one point against Udinese on Thursday to secure the title. If the Azzurri draw or win against Udinese, they will finally land their first Scudetto in 33 years. A loss means they have to wait until Sunday when they face Fiorentina at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona to qualify.

Coverage on Thursday begins at 1PM ET with a special edition of Box 2 Box, followed by the Calcio e Cappuccino pre-match show at 2PM ET on CBS Sports Golazo Network, which will air the match alongside Paramount+ at 2:45PM ET.

Napoli drew against Salernitana last Sunday and missed their first chance at the title. If all goes well, Naples and Napoli fans around the world will finally celebrate a long-awaited and deserved title on Thursday.

Meanwhile, the race for the last places in the Champions League is getting more and more exciting, with a six-point difference between second place and seventh place:

2. Lazio, 64 points (+46 GD)
3. Juventus, 63 points (+22 GD)
4. Inter, 60 points (+25 GD)
5. Atalanta, 58 points (+17 GD)
6. Milan, 58 points (+14 GD)
7. Roma, 58 points (+14 GD)

Inter scored six goals at Hellas Verona – including a shoutout from Hakan Calhanoglu – and are currently only fourth in Serie A. AC Milan drew at San Siro against Cremonese (after trailing 1-0 until the final minutes) and AS Roma drew 1-1 in Monza. Both Atalanta (3-2 at Spezia) and Juventus (2-1 at Lecce) scored three crucial points.

It will all be a memorable weekend in Italy with AS Roma against Inter at the Stadio Olimpico, AC Milan against Lazio on Saturday and Juventus visiting Atalanta on Sunday.
