The 2-2 draw with Juventus last night was enough to guarantee Lazio qualification to the Europa League.
The Biancocelesti currently sit fifth in the Serie A table after 37 games, three points ahead of intercity rivals Roma. With only one game remaining, Maurizio Sarri’s side have secured mathematical qualification to the Europa League, as Fiorentina sit four points behind in seventh.
As highlighted by La Lazio Siamo Noi, Lazio have now qualified for European competition for the sixth consecutive season. Five of these years saw the team compete in the Europa League, with one being their return to the Champions League.
Only in the Sergio Cragnotti era had the Roman club done better in regards to European competition, qualifying for 12 years in a row – 13, if you consider the first year of Claudio Lotito’s presidency in the 2004-05 campaign.
Sarri did not seem to enjoy competing in the Europa League this season, regularly highlighting the toll it took on his players and how it impacted their results on the weekend.
