Italy secured the fifth place for the Champions League


Italy mathematically ensured on Thursday that the fifth team in Serie A will play in next season’s soccer Champions League, increasing the quota of Italian clubs in Europe next season.

Although the fifth place awarded by UEFA due to the expansion of the lathe for the next campaign was almost assured for the Italians for several weeks, until Atalanta and Fiorentina confirmed their place in the semifinals on Thursday, against Liverpool and Viktoria Pilzen, respectively, when the confirmation came.

Thanks to the total points obtained by the confrontation between the Italians, a Roma-Milan that ended with a result favorable to the Romans (3-1 overall), and to the results of ‘Dea’ (3-1 overall) and ‘ Fiore’ (2-0 overall), Italy reached 19,384 points in the coefficient, unattainable for English, third.

Second and first place now remain in dispute, irrelevant when it comes to receiving fifth place.

The fall of the Premier League teams in the quarterfinals of the Champions League, Arsenal against Bayern Munich and Manchester City against Real Madrid, although it brought the Germans closer to the first place held by Italy, finalist in the 3 continental competitions last season, cut off a good part of English hope, which had a Liverpool team almost doomed, certainly against an Italian like Atalanta.

Next season, in the ‘Champions’ there will be 5 Italians, opening the possibility that Italy could have up to 10 teams in Europe with a cabal to be determined at the end of the campaign, with the Serie A table unshakable , the designated Italian Cup champion and the certified Europa League and Conference League winner.
