Sassuolo and Hellas Verona won automatic promotion to Italian Serie A last season after finishing first and second respectively. The third place was up for grabs. Livorno, Brescia, Empoli and Novara played the qualifying semis and in the two-legged final, Livorno had enough grit about them to beat Empoli 2-1 and gain a place in Italian football’s elite.
Next season, Italy will have only three representatives in the UEFA Champions League. Juventus have an automatic place in the group stages after retaining the Scudetto last season while the other automatic spot went to Napoli. The third and final spot was decided on the last day of the season.
Despite Fiorentina playing very well throughout the campaign, it was AC Milan who pipped La Viola to the final Champions League spot. However, Milan will have to play a qualification playoff in order to make it to the group stages.
After losing out on a place in the Champions League qualification spot on the last day of the last season, Fiorentina will play in the Europa League where they will have to feature in a playoff round in order to make it to the group stages. Udinese meanwhile, finished fifth and will have to play in the third qualifying round for passage to the group phases. After winning the Coppa Italia, Lazio have been given an automatic place in the Europa League group stage for next season.
Last season, Lazio got the better of capital rivals Roma in the Derby della Capitale, which was the first of its kind in the Coppa Italia finale. A solitary goal in the 71st minute by Senad Lulic gave Lazio the bragging rights for the time being and a trophy to show for their efforts. The game would also be remembered for the fact that Gangnam Style star, PSY gave a pregame performance at the Stadio Olimpico in front of 70,000 people.
