Well Juve aside none of the clubs in Serie have much money. But it is an over reaction to say those three countries have surpassed them. Lille and Montpellier are both having dreadful Champions League campaigns. Ukraine is league where only two clubs can win the title, though it is already over this year due to how good Shakhtar are.
Serie A was unfortunate in Champions League this year as Milan decided to cut costs and offload half their team without bringing in replacements. And Udinese were a soft #3 plus they were gutted of some of their best players, Asamoah has been a star at Juve for instance. But there are major issues in Italy to sort out just as there are in Spain and England also.
