Fiorentina secured their Serie A status with a 1-0 win at fellow strugglers Lecce on Saturday as Roma’s faint European hopes were left hanging by a thread after a 2-2 home draw with Catania.

Two goals from Francesco Totti on his 500th appearance for Roma were not enough to gain a win for his hometown club as they dropped out of the race for Europe with a 2-2 home draw against Catania.

Juventus could be crowned Serie A champions on Sunday as they take on Cagliari in Trieste in front of thousands of travelling fans.
