With their brilliant outing in Europe this season, Serie A were given five Champions League slots for next season. Currently, only seven points separates Bologna in third and Roma at position six. So how did these teams fair in round 36 in their aim of participating in Europe Premier competition? 

Bologna seals first-ever UCL spot after Roma loss; Juventus in too

Charles De Ketelaere netted twice to help Atalanta boost their chances of returning to the Champions League with a 2-1 win over direct rival Roma on Sunday, with the result clinching spots in Europe’s top competition for Juventus and Bologna.

De Ketelaere scored the two goals within as many minutes in the first half, but Lorenzo Pellegrini set up a tense final quarter of the match by scoring from the spot.

Fifth-place Atalanta moved three points above Roma and has also played a match less. The top five in Serie A qualify for next season’s Champions League and there are two rounds remaining in the Italian league.

The result also meant Juventus secured a spot in next season’s Champions League despite being held to a 1-1 draw by Salernitana earlier in the day. It also confirmed Bologna’s first appearance in the Champions League.

But it was more misery for Roma which was eliminated from the Europa League midweek, giving up a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 at Bayer Leverkusen in the second leg of their semifinal.

Atalanta, Roma and Lazio are all out for a Champions League spot

The Champions League race in the Serie A is down to Atalanta, Roma, and Lazio. Bologna and Juventus have secured a top-five finish thanks to La Dea beating the Giallorossi on Sunday.

The Bergamaschi have one game in hand versus Fiorentina. It will take place on July 2nd, after the end of the season. Napoli, the Viola, and Torino are tussling for eighth place.

Roma and Lazio will monitor what Atalanta does down the stretch very closely. The sixth spot will grant access to the Champions League only if the Nerazzurri beat Bayer Leverkusen in Dublin and finish exactly fifth. Instead, if they overtook Bologna or Juventus and concluded in fourth position, that wouldn’t impact the number of Serie A representatives in the top continental competition in 2024/2024. It’s pretty likely given their easy schedule and the fact that the Felsinei and the Old Lady will meet later this week.

Fiorentina would punch their ticket to the Europa League if they beat Olympiacos. However, that wouldn’t add a spot for other sides. Instead, it could potentially lead to no Italian sides in the third-tier cup, depending on their position.

Relegation dogfight to go the wire

It was a slow round down low as all relegation strugglers lost. Udinese beat Lecce on Monday to climb out of the relegation zone but they are just a point off the relegation zone with two games to go.

Bottom-placed Salernitana have already relegated after collecting just 16 points the entire season but second-last Sassuolo will feel they have a fighting chance as they host relegation rivals Cagliari in their next game before travelling to Lazio on the final day of the season.

Empoli who are 18th are on 32 points, just 3 points off Sassuolo, face Udinese in their next match in a game that they’ll have to win if they are to stay afloat before ending the season at home against Roma, who are chasing a Champions League spot.

Frosinone (17th), Cagliari (16th), Udinese (15th) and Verona (14th) are all not safe as the teams are just separated by two points. Frosinone have a date against Monza and Udinese, Cagliari will face Sassuolo and Fiorentina, and Udinese has relatively easier tests as their remaining games are against teams in the relegation zone with Verona facing already relegated Salernitana in their next game before finishing the season against Inter.
