Atalanta will play in the Champions League next season after reaching a top four on the last day of the season.

After a strong closing of the campaign, including a recent draw to League champion Juventus, Atalanta came from behind to defeat Sassuolo and take a European place at the expense of giants AC Milan.

Domenico Berardi scored early for the visitors, but Atalanta remained focused and gained the advantage after Berardi went from hero to villain and let himself leave.

AC Milan managed to win a final day with a 3-2 win over SPAL, but had to settle for a fifth placed finish after rivals Inter also ended with a win.

A home win at the San Siro saw Inter-end the campaign by beating Empoli 2-1 and returning to the Premier League of European football.

They seem to resume the Champions League action with Antonio Conte at the helm, with the former Chelsea boss about to take over.
