The race for the second place in the standings is in the final phase. In the next 6 matches, one between Roma and Napoli will celebrate the achievement.
We are facing the last 450’minutes of the Italian Serie A. Roma is 4 points ahead of Napoli even if thanks to the direct challenges played over the season, the Giallorossi would be ahead even if both teams will collect the same amount of points.
Although Napoli’s calendar seems to be easier compared to that of Roma, Spalletti’s guys are still ahead and will try their best to keep that important position.
How much is the Champions League worth for AS Roma?
The second place in the standings would give the Giallorossi at least €32 million (Considering the qualifying bonus and the first part of the market pool) – this is what Calcio e Finanza recently reported. This figure is truthful if the team in the third position will be eliminated in the preliminary round of the Champions League that will be played in August. In reality, if only two Italian teams will qualify to the most important International competition for clubs, the amount that Roma would cash in is €35 million.
Let’s even analyze the unfortunate case if the Giallorossi will have to pass through the caudal forks of the preliminary phase. In case Roma would pass the preliminary match of the Champions League, Pallotta’s team would collect about €23 million, a figure that drops to €13.8 million in the case of elimination.
