Note that many hours ago, Juventus was certain of playing in the UCL next season as they were in the second position with just three games to go. However, just before the game against Empoli kicked off, a deduction of 10 Serie A points was made from Juventus' overall points in the league following the verdict by the Federal Court of Appeal about the capital gains scandal. So, the loss against Empoli means that Juventus would have to fight in the last two games against AC Milan and Udinese to qualify for UCL. For this reason, the embarrassing 4-1 loss is painful for Juventus fans as they moved from the second spot in the league to not being sure of UEFA Champions League football.
