As the season ended on Sunday night, so did Lazio's hopes of Champions League football next season. Despite Lazio winning 4-2 away to Lecce, Udinese's 0-0 draw with Milan was enough to leave the Fruliani on level points with Lazio but with a superior goal difference it was Udinese who got the Champions League slot.

Today Roma boss Vincenzo Montella, speaking at an award ceremony, spoke of the battle for fourth. "Who finishes higher usually does on merit. The rankings generally reflect the value of the teams. Lazio however, I must admit, were high up most of the season and perhaps deserved to enter the Champions League".
