Champions League places down to the wire

The top four will go down to the wire, as Milan and Napoli enter the final round on 76 points, with Juventus on 75.

There is another element that needs to be considered too, because on Wednesday evening Atalanta and Juventus go head-to-head for the Coppa Italia Final.
