Sport: “The old lady” is in 4th place and has a gap of seven points to Roma in 6th place, with only two games left in the season.

Thiago Motta’s third-placed Bologna also secured a place in the Champions League for the first time after Atalanta beat Roma.

Atalanta’s 2-1 win also boosted their chances of claiming the final Champions League spot. The Europa League finalists are in fifth place, three points ahead of Roma, and also have one game less played.

Inter has long since secured the league title, while it is also clear that city rivals Milan will finish second.

Italy and Germany are guaranteed to field five teams in next season’s Champions League, which will be played in a new format. Among the innovations is that an extra place is awarded to the two leagues that performed best the previous season.
