Atalanta, Juventus, and Milan are level on 69 points with 4 games to go as they make up the top four. Napoli sit 5th 2 points behind them while Lazio are 6th 3 points behind Napoli. Roma are 7th and unless they win the Europa League which is unlikely they will not be playing European football next season. 

DFB Pokal Semi-Finals
