Champions League

We are at that point of football where attention is turning up toward the Champions League and Europa League 2020/21 season qualification. Which team will qualify?

Last season-2019/20, seven Premier League teams made it through the knockouts and secured their positions in the European competition.

This season, we await to see which of the teams will make it to the 2020/21 season.

How to qualify for the Champions League

In regular seasons, the top four teams in the Premier League are eligible for the group stages of the Champions League.

Winning the Champions League and Europa League as well guarantees a place in the group stages. With Liverpool and Chelsea having done so in the last season, the two teams also finished in the top four-a position that would also have secured their place in the competition.

Across both competitions, seven teams from England can compete.

How to qualify for the Europa League

There are three ways to qualify for the Europa League. The most conventional method is a fifth-place finish in the Premier League.

Conversely, cup wins also count. An FA Cup victory secures a place in the Europa League group stage. On the other hand, the Carabao Cup win ensures a spot in the second qualifying round of the competition.

If the FA Cup winner finishes fifth or higher in the Premier League, their spot in the Europa League group stage goes to the next-highest ranked team not qualified for UEFA competitions in the Premier League.

Basically, the same applies to the Carabao Cup. If the winners finish in the top five, their spot in the second qualifying round of the Europa League goes to the next-highest ranked team not qualified for UEFA competitions in the Premier League.

For example in the last season, Manchester City won both cups and the Premier Cup. In this case, their spot in the group stage from the FA Cup victory was given to Manchester United. Similarly, second-placed Wolves got a chance in the second qualifying round.

The first Europa League place will be decided when the Carabao Cup final takes place on 1st March. City looks forward to defending its title against Aston Villa at Wembley.
