[Official] With Juventus Got Their Point Deducted Back, Lazio Finally Returns To Champions League Next Season

Juventus received a 10-point reduction in the league after being deemed to have inflated the cost of player transfers to boost their income in the future.  Now they have been demoted from the top four, and they are also in jeopardy of missing the European competition next season.

The sentence was issued around a month after an appeal requesting the reimbursement of the 15 points requested by Juventus was granted by the court.  However, the FIGC again argued, and this time, it was decided that the Bianconeri were penalized 10 points.

This caused Juventus, who were originally in second place with 69 points from 35 matches, to drop to seventh with 59 points.  The loss to Empoli last night left their points total unchanged, and they only have two matches left this season.

At this point, Juventus is five points behind AC Milan who is fourth in the standings.  The two squads will compete against one another in Week 37.  If the Bianconeri fail to win, they will certainly miss out on the Champions League next season.

But, even more dismal, they are in danger of missing out on Europe if they finish seventh.  It is dependent on AS Roma's results in the Europa League, Fiorentina's results in the Europa Conference League and Coppa Italia, and Inter Milan's results in Serie A.

"Further appeals are possible, but you have to read the motivation behind the penalty, which will be released in the next few days," Juventus Chief Football Officer Francesco Calvo told DAZN.

Thanks to a 10-point penalty to Juventus, Lazio became the second Serie A representative to compete in the Champions League next season.

By leaving two remaining matches, Lazio is certain to finish in the top 4 and will play in the Champions League next season, because they can no longer be chased by fifth-place, Atalanta.
