Milan, May 11 - Inter Milan beat Lazio 4-1 in club veteran Javier Zanetti's farewell match at the San Siro while Verona's European dream suffered a heavy blow with a 2-2 draw home with Udinese.

Zanetti, the most decorated player in Inter's history as well as Argentina's most-capped player with 145 appearances, was the focal point of the crucial match Saturday where both Inter and Lazio needed a win in their respective chase for next season's Europa League spot, reports Xinhua.

Inter are now ranked fifth with 60 points and need only a draw in their final game of the season against Chievo away to make sure of a Europa spot for next season, while the defeat ended Lazio's hopes of a top six finish.

Verona's chance of finishing among the top six took a major blow after they surrendered a two-goal lead to draw with Udinese.

Luca Toni netted his 20th Serie A goal of the season from the penalty spot in the 14th minute before Emil Halfredsson scored eight minutes into the second period to double the hosts' lead.
