Inter punched their ticket to the knockout stage on Wednesday, and following the results of the latest matchday, the three other Serie A representatives in the Champions League all have decent chances of going through. It would be an unprecedented achievement for the Peninsula.
Napoli had a lackluster showing versus Union Berlin. However, they are second in Group C and hold a four-point lead over Sporting Braga. Only a complete collapse could lead to their elimination.
Milan have to win at least one of their two remaining fixtures to advance. Still, they are in control of their own destiny following the massive win over PSG on Tuesday, even though they are currently third behind the Ligue 1 giants and Borussia Dortmund.
Lazio surpassed Feyenoord thanks to Ciro Immobile’s solitary strike, bouncing back after an ugly defeat in the Netherlands two weeks ago. They’ll qualify mathematically if they pick up four points against Atletico Madrid and Celtic. However, if the Colchoneros, which still necessitate a nudge, defeated the Dutch side, prevailing in the final game will be enough to finish second, Sky relays.
