Juventus achieves an agonizing qualification for the Champions League | sports

Juventus has managed to avoid a cataclysm this season and will be in the next edition of the Champions League. Pirlo’s men faced the last day of Serie A against Bologna from fifth place, forced to win and wait for a puncture from Naples or Milan to avoid being left out of the top European competition. Hellas Verona gave the surprise and tied against the Neapolitan team at the Diego Armando Maradona so that the Old lady reached an agonizing fourth place. The bianconeros they fulfilled their role and swept their match (1-4). Morata, with two goals, made sure that in the second half they were more aware of the phones than what was happening on the field. Cristiano Ronaldo did not have minutes in the game in which his team was risking their lives and Pirlo cleared up any shadow of doubt after the match. “He told me that he was tired after the Coppa final on Wednesday”, commented the coach.

Milan was the one facing the bravest bull, Atalanta, at Gasperini’s house. Napoli, on the other hand, faced Hellas Verona at the Diego Armando Maradona. Two penalties converted by Kessie put the rossoneros back to the Champions eight years later. After a long journey through the desert, the second most successful club in the Champions League with 7 orejonas, returns to the highest continental competition.

The pressure was transferred to Gattuso’s men, in the Europa League with this combination of results. At game time, Napoli got the goal that sank Juventus with a loose ball that Rrahmani hunted in the heart of the area. But Verona did an invaluable favor to Pirlo’s men and, without risking anything, got the tie as soon as they conceded the goal and withstood the epic of the Neapolitan team until the final whistle. Lazio will join Napoli in the Europa League and Roma will be in the Conference League after drawing against Spezia with five minutes to go. Mourinho, who will take charge of the team from the Italian capital next season, will spend his first year as coach without the Champions League or Europa League.

Inter, brand new champion of Serie A this season for several weeks, celebrated the delivery of the title with their fans and had a feast against Udinese (5-1) to close a round year for Conte’s men. Cristiano, despite not playing a single minute against Bologna, took home the trophy top scorer with 29 goals and becomes the first player in history to be the top scorer in England, Spain and Italy.

The fight to avoid relegation had already been resolved several days ago. Benevento and Crotone return to Serie B a year later, accompanied by Parma, the worst team in the category with just three wins and 20 points. They will be replaced by Empoli, Salernitana and the winner of the promotion play-off final between Venezia and Cittadella. Salernitana, owned by Claudio Lotito, president of Lazio, had to be refounded in 2010 in Serie D and achieved historic promotion for the modest club. The bad news for the manager is that he will have to put the team up for sale as he cannot own two Serie A clubs.
