Fourth placed PL team could lose CL spot???

Posted by THE POLICE over 2 years ago · 3 replies

A fourth-placed finish in the Premier League could yet mean a club misses out on qualifying for Europe's premier club competition next season if Leicester City win the Champions League & Man Utd win the Europa League. OMG!!!

The race for a place in the Premier League's top four looks set to be the most exciting for some time, with up to six sides fighting it out to finish in the three places behind champions-elect Chelsea.

But there could yet be a final twist in the tail for one of those sides even if they do secure fourth-place in the top-flight.

The winners of both the Champions League and Europa League are guaranteed participation in next season's Champions League while no country is allowed more than five participants in the competition.

That means, if both Leicester City and Manchester United go on to lift European silverware and finish outside the top four, then only the top three in the Premier League will qualify for Europe's premier club competition.

Leicester, though they are huge outsiders to go on and win the Champions League.

United, meanwhile a favorite to go on and win the Europa League.

Leicester and Utd winning European silverware would be so awesome. Not so much for liverpool/city/arsenal/spurs, however...

Our problem is that we are so comfortable in the champions league. That makes us soft against other teams that we could possibly beat but allow them to kick our butts
