Expansion of Champions League and the Stakes for European Leagues

Next season’s Champions League will be expanded in matches and teams, and two of the new places will go to the leagues with the best UEFA ranking in the previous campaign. That is, the results of the teams in a league in European competitions will be essential for that same league to be favored in the new Champions League.

The first leg of the round of 16 of the current edition has drawn a dangerous scenario for the Spanish league. Only Madrid among its four representatives was able to win (0-1 against Leipzig); Barça did not go beyond a draw in Naples (1-1); For their part, Atlético and Real Sociedad lost (1-0 against Inter and 2-0 against PSG).

The future is very delicate, therefore. Right now Italy is the championship with the most points (15,142) and Germany is the second (14,071). If they finished the course today, they would be the ones who would win an extra fifth place in the next Champions League. England, with 13,875, is third and Spain does not appear until fourth place with 13,062.

The League must try to get as many teams as possible into the Champions League quarterfinals, so the return matches will be essential. Villarreal are also still alive in the Europa League and Betis in the Conference, although they are competitions that give many fewer points. The key is to continue advancing in the Champions League. And that’s where Spain is hitting the nail on the head lately…
