The outcome of the European finals is intertwined with the placings in the Serie A standings. Three days before the end of the championship there is great uncertainty. There is the hypothesis of the five teams in the Champions League and also that of the eight Italians qualified to play in the international arena
An Italian team in each of the European finals. A race for useful placements for Europe that has clear protagonists but not the order of arrival, three days from the end of the championship. It is therefore useful to give an overview of the situation. Starting with the numbers. Basic Italy sends four teams to the Champions League (the first four), two to the Europa League (the fifth and the winner of the national cup) and one to the Conference (the sixth). Champions League clubs can become five if Inter or Roma, in this case, win their respective competition but finish outside the top four in Serie A. At that point sixth would go to the Europa League and seventh to the Conference.
But there is also another case to consider, which concerns Fiorentina. The Italian team is out of the race for Europe in the league, but can qualify for the Europa League in two different ways, namely by winning either the Conference League or the Italian Cup. If it were to happen, the Viola and the fifth would be in the Europa League, while the sixth would go to the Conference. To conclude, let’s assume the best case scenario with Inter, Roma and Fiorentina who all lift a cup in their current positions in the league, there would be eight qualifiers in the international arena: Napoli, Juventus, Inter, Lazio and Roma would be in the Champions League, Milan and Fiorentina in Europa League, Atalanta in the Conference.
