Matchday 33: Milan - Empoli (Sunday, April 23, 2017 - 15:00 CET)

Yes, that's correct. 6th place will enter the Europa League, but the "problem" is that whoever finishes 6th will start in the 2nd qualifying round which is played at the end of July (1st leg) and beginning of August (second leg). So if we finish 6th we will play the 2nd qualifying round, the 3rd qualifying round and the playoff round in order to make it to the group stages (3 rounds, 6 games). The games "should" be pretty easy for a side like Milan but we have to start the pre-season training super early, and there is a good chance that the players will run out of steam come April/May. It's still better than nothing but finishing 4th or 5th will put us DIRECTLY into the group stages. Seeing the schedules of all 4 teams battling for these spots, I think we have the most suitable schedule along with Atalanta. We have a very good chance of finishing 4th/5th.
