On Monday, May 16, in Turin at the Allianz Stadium, the program of the 37th round of the Italian Serie A will be closed with a match in which the local Juventus will host the Roman Lazio. The starting whistle will sound at 21:45 Kyiv time.
The Turin club for the first time in 11 years will end the season without winning a single trophy. Massimiliano Allegri’s team flew out of the Champions League at the 1/8 final stage, suffered a defeat in the match for the Italian Super Cup, and also lost their chances at the Scudetto long ago.
The last opportunity to take the trophy was the Coppa Italia match, in which Juventus lost 2:4 to Inter Milan after extra time. A place in the top 4 and, accordingly, a ticket to the Champions League, Turintsy guaranteed themselves, but they are unlikely to be able to rise above the fourth place. The gap from Napoli, which is third, is 4 points.
The Eagles have failed to qualify for the Champions League for the second consecutive season. So far, everything is going to the fact that Maurizio Sarri’s team will finish the season in the Europa League zone, but there is a fierce struggle for European positions. Two rounds before the end of the championship, Lazio is in fifth place, ahead of the closest pursuers by 3 points.
But there are too many of these pursuers – three clubs at once can catch up with Sarri’s wards if they misfire. Formidable Atalanta, Roma and Fiorentina breathe in the back. So, theoretically, Lazio may be completely left without European cups. Although such a scenario is very unlikely.
