The UEFA Champions league Round of 16 has completed with an unfortunate result for Italy: neither of the teams are in the Quarter Finals.


The Final is scheduled for San Siro in Milan on May 28th.


Likely the final will be a great game, as it nearly always is, but the victory that day may be a bit hollow for the Italians in attendance without one of their own on the pitch.

For those interested in the details for the two Italian teams that played in the tournament this year, here are some useful links:

Roma: http://www.uefa.com/uefachampionsleague/season=2016/clubs/club=50137/index.html

Juventus: http://www.uefa.com/uefachampionsleague/season=2016/clubs/club=50139/index.html

Who knows? Maybe the final being hosted in Milan will spur the Italian teams to achieve great things in 2017.

Ci sentiamo presto,
