- UEFA held a crunch executive committee meeting today
- Teams currently in the ‘top four’ would qualify for 2020/21 Champions League
- Mental Health and Psychosocial considerations during the COVID-19 Pandemic
UEFA has decided that if the current football campaign cannot be concluded, next year’s European competition will be based on sporting merit.
At a meeting earlier today, Europe’s governing committee decided that next year’s European qualifications will be worked out based on sporting merit.
This would mean a decision made on points-per-game tally would be used to determine which teams qualify for next season’s European competitions.
The decision would see Manchester United and Wolves take the Europa League spots in England while Leicester and Chelsea join Manchester City and Liverpool in the Champions League.
Plenty of big decisions had previously been made by the committee, such as the postponement of Euro 2020, so it was always expected that more tough calls would be made this week.
In Spain, Barcelona and Real Madrid would be joined by Sevilla and Real Sociedad in the 2020/21 Champions League campaign, while PSG, Olympique Marseille, Rennes and Lille will represent France in the coveted competition
Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig and Borrusia M’gladbach will represent the German contingent.
In Italy, Juventus will be joined by Lazio, Inter Milan and Atalanta.
