The Italian club has performed well in Serie A and will try its hand at the main European Cup tournament.

The Italian Bologna will once again play in the Champions League. The previous day, the “red-blues” officially qualified for the main club football tournament in Europe.

And all thanks to Roma’s defeat of Atalanta in the 36th round of Serie A. The Europa League finalists defeated the Romans at home 2:1.

After this result, Thiago Motti’s team will definitely finish at least fifth place, which gives the right to play in the competition.

Let’s remember that Italy will be represented by five clubs in the next Champions League, and Bologna will return to the main European Cup tournament after 60 years.

The last time the “red-blues” played in the Champions League was in the 1964/65 season, when the tournament was still called the European Cup, but then the team lost to Anderlecht in the preliminary round.

It was also the club’s first appearance in European competition since 2002, when Bologna played in the Intertoto Cup.

We remind you that earlier it was known that Parma will return to Serie A.
