Novara will almost assuredly be the next team to be officially relegated, having to face Juventus at home on Sunday.

There was some idiotic scenes in the Genoa, as the home side -losing to Siena at the time -were demanded to take of their jerseys by their own ultras. The reasoning; according to this small minority of fans the players were not fit enough to wear the club’s colours.
