Juventus will not feature in next season’s Champions League after a 1-1 Serie A draw at Catania on Sunday ensured the seventh-placed side cannot finish fourth.
Sampdoria stayed two points clear in the fourth and final Champions League qualifying spot thanks to a 2-0 home win over relegated Livorno, with fifth-placed Palermo the only team that can now catch them with two games left.
Palermo won 2-1 at Siena to confirm the home side’s relegation after they were effectively condemned last weekend because of their poor goal difference.
Third-bottom Atalanta, who missed a first-half penalty and were reduced to 10 men for the whole second period, stay five points adrift of safety after a calamitous late own goal from Federico Peluso in a 1-1 draw with fourth-bottom Bologna.
