Most verdicts have already been issued in the 2022/2023 season, but a couple will come down to the final Serie A matchday and perhaps afterward. The penultimate round set the top four thanks to Inter and Milan’s victories over Atalanta and Juventus. The two crosstown rivals, Napoli and Lazio have formally punched their ticket to the next Champions League. The Biancocelesti will play in the revamped Supercoppa Italiana.
The 5th, 6th, and 7th positions are up in the air. Just two points separate Atalanta, Roma, and Juventus. If the Giallorossi beat Sevilla Wednesday, they will qualify for the top continental competition. Otherwise, it’ll hinge on how they finish. They will host Spezia in their season finale, while the Bianconeri will face Udinese away, and Atalanta will take on Monza.
Lecce sealed their permanence in the top flight in dramatic fashion thanks to a late PK against the Brianzoli Sunday. Spezia and Verona are the only two teams in contention, and they are level. The Scaligeri will visit Milan in their last fixture. If the situation stays as in, the two relegation strugglers will face off in a single-elimination playoff to determine who will stay in Serie A due to a recent rule change, SportMediaset informs.
A few sides are competing for 8th place, which could be worth a European berth if Juventus get banned by UEFA or penalized again. Torino and Fiorentina have 53 points, while Monza and Bologna are right behind them. The Granata will collide with Inter in the final round, the Viola will face Sassuolo, and the Felsinei will meet Lecce. The Gigliati can also qualify by winning the European Conference League.
