Lazio currently sit 27th in UEFA’s Club Coefficient rankings, the sixth highest Italian team.
As seen on UEFA’s website yesterday, the Biancocelesti’s work so far this campaign in their Europa League group means that they sit 27th in the rankings, just ahead of Portuguese giants Sporting Club (28th) and Benfica (29th).
The coefficient is based off club results in the last five years of European competition. For Lazio, their progress to the Champions League Round of 16 last campaign saw them earn 17 coefficient points.
They received 17 points in the 2017/18 season as well, when they reached the quarter-finals of the Europa League.
Beating Galatasaray and winning Group E has two key bonuses for Lazio next month – it will see them earn another €3 million (adding to the €9 million already earnt) and will also allow them to focus on Serie A at the start of the year, rather than having to play two play-off matches in February.
