Jack87 news today, asianbookie Juventus failed to secure a place in next season’s Europa League after beating Udinese 1-0 with a second-half goal from Federico Chiesa in Sunday’s final Serie A game.

Juventus’ hopes of securing a place in UEFA’s second tier were dashed as Roma beat relegation-challenged Spezia 2-1 and Atalanta clinched a 1xbet Europa League spot with a 5-2 win over Monza. Roma’s Paulo Dybala scored an 89th-minute penalty as Jose Mourinho’s side claimed points as they put aside the disappointment of Wednesday’s Europa League final defeat.

Juventus qualified for the league in seventh place with 62 points, while Atalanta (64) and Roma (63) finished fifth and sixth respectively.Juve dropped to seventh after being deducted 10 points by the Italian Football Stadium for their transfer deal last month.

Massimiliano Allegri’s side have been plagued by injuries all season, with Grayson Bremmer and Dusan Vlahovic sidelined on Sunday, while Angel Di Maria sat on the bench at the table.

Allegri called the match a complicated one for Juve, highlighting how they were initially deducted 15 points and suspended the decision following an appeal.

They would have finished third had it not been for the subsequent 10-point penalty that cost them their Champions League place.

“The 10-point penalty was not our fault, so I led the team to the third place on the pitch and no one can take that away from me,” Allegri told Sky Sport Italia.

“It was a difficult year but a good one. The (Udinese) games were largely irrelevant. I just want to thank everyone who worked with me at the Continassa (training ground).”

Asked about his future, Allegri said: “I haven’t discussed any termination, I still have two years left.”

With Udinese barely threatened, the hosts went defensive in the first half as Juventus dominated possession.

Juve came close to scoring on the half-hour mark when Leonardo Bonucci’s powerful header hit the crossbar after taking a corner.

In the 68th minute, Chiesa broke the deadlock by deftly sending the ball into the corner from 15 meters away.

The atmosphere at the Stadio Olimpico was tense as Roma tried to bounce back from their crushing penalty shootout defeat by Sevilla in the Europa League final. To add insult to injury, Mourinho was unable to stand on the touchline due to suspension.

Spezia were also desperate for points as they tried to avoid relegation or a relegation play-off and took the lead after six minutes thanks to a header from Dimitrios Nikolaou, Nicola Zale Lewski equalized two minutes before the break.

Dybala scored the winning penalty after Spezia’s Kelvin Amian Adu was sent off for a second yellow card after shoving Stephan El Shalawi with two minutes remaining .

“Of course we deserved more tonight. After a good game we lost in the last few minutes,” Spezia coach Leonardo Semplich told DAZN. “We’ve got to get ready and charge. It’s a knockout game (playoffs), so mentality is crucial.”
