Atalanta moved into Italy's final Champions League spot as late goals from Marten de Roon and Mario Pasalic gave them a 2-0 win over Udinese.

The visitors held out for 81 minutes until former Spurs midfielder Sandro tripped Andrea Masiello and Dutchman De Roon, who spent a season at Middlesbrough, scored from the spot.

Pasalic's deflected strike sealed the win with five minutes to go.

Atalanta move fourth with 59 points, one ahead of Roma with four games left.

The Bergamo club, who have never qualified for the Champions League, also face competition from Torino and AC Milan (56 points) and Lazio (55) in a fascinating battle for fourth place.

Udinese stay 17th, one place and four points clear of the relegation zone.
