Latest Spurs news: Tottenham move into Champions League Pot 2 thanks to Serie A results
The report claims that AS Roma’s failure to finish in the Champions League places on the last day of the Serie A campaign helped Spurs achieve the place in the Pots.
Roma won their final game of the season but that was cancelled out by wins for Atalanta and AC Milan, with the latter pair finishing third and fourth respectively.
The Rome side would have been placed above us in the Pots had they made it into the Champions League. Roma have a better coefficient than us (h/t Football.london) and also reached the semi-finals of the competition last season.
Spurs’ group could be easier next time
Moving into Pot 2 should give us a relatively easier group than the last two seasons.
Tottenham have been placed in tough groups which have included Barcelona, Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Borussia Dortmund in the previous two campaigns.
We have proved our mettle in Europe by making it out of the tough groups, and this season has been incredible thanks to our run to the final.
The report adds that Tottenham could also move to Pot 1 of the Champions League as a place is reserved for the winners.
