    European qualification and stipulations for Premier League teams explained

             By Carl Halsall

    With the Premier League season drawing to a close it is crunch time for teams competing for European places for the 2016/17 season.

    With Manchester City still in the Champions League, and Liverpool in the Europa League, things might get a little complicated for places in the Champions League and the Europa League for next season.

    There is a complicated pattern of potential outcomes, which could have a substantial effect on which competition Premier League teams compete in in the new campaign.

    There is a limit to five clubs from the same nation who can enter the Champions League, and a limit of three in the Europa League.

    Processes for Champions League and Europa League qualification?

    • Domestic league position - The winners of the Premier League will be automatically seeded in the Champions League group stage draw, with the teams finishing in 2nd and 3rd place, will also qualify for the group stage automatically. The team who finishes 4th are usually guaranteed to qualify for the Champions League group stage via a play-off round, however this is not yet guaranteed. It is important to finish high in the league as possible, as there are also three positions currently available for Europa League qualification.
    • Champions League winner - Currently Manchester City are in the semi-finals against Real Madrid with a 0-0 aggregate scoreline heading into their 2nd leg in Madrid this week, and if they were to go on and lift the trophy; they would automatically qualify for the group stage next season regardless of their final Premier League position.
    • Europa League winner - Liverpool are still in the Europa League with a 1-0 first leg deficit to overturn at Anfield this coming week against Villareal. If Liverpool were to lift the trophy in Basel on 18th May 2016, they would automatically qualify for a Champions League play-off round, although they could also secure a place in the group stage.
    • FA Cup winner - The winner between Manchester United and Crystal Palace in the final at Wembley will guarantee themselves a spot in the Europa League group stage.
    • League Cup winner - Manchester City will at least have a place in the Europa League third-qualifying round, after their penalty shoot-out victory over Liverpool in the League Cup final at Wembley back in February 2016.

    Potential 4th place scenarios

    As it stands, finishing fourth in the Premier League does not guarantee Champions League qualification for that particular team, depending on what happens to Liverpool and Manchester City in the Europa League and Champions League respectively this week.

    In simple terms; if Manchester City were to win the Champions League, and Liverpool win the Europa League, and neither team finish in the top four, then the team who finishes fourth in the Premier League would go into the Europa League group stage, rather than the Champions League qualifying round.

    This is due to the five clubs from the same nation rule in the Champions League, and victories for Liverpool and Manchester City in the respective European competitions would mean that they qualify for the Champions League alongside the top three teams in the Premier League which are currently; Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.

    Manchester City currently occupy 4th place, four points ahead of rivals Manchester United, although Manchester United do have a game in hand over Manchester City.

    Which teams are likely to finish 4th?

    Manchester United can still finish 4th in the Premier League, if they win their three remaining fixtures against Norwich, West Ham and Bournemouth, and if Manchester City fail to win one of their last two games against; Arsenal at home, or Swansea away, then 4th place will go to Manchester United.

    However, if this happens, and Liverpool and Manchester City win the Europa League and Champions League respectively, then Manchester United in this case would miss out, and go into the Europa League instead.

    The same situation applies to West Ham, as they are the other team who can realistically still finish 4th in the league.

    They are currently one point behind Manchester United sitting in 5th place in the Premier League, with the same amount of games left each. This includes the fixture against each other at Upton Park on 10th May, which could prove crucial in the fight for European places, especially if Manchester City were to slip up against Arsenal this coming weekend.



    Would Liverpool go into the Champions League group stage or play-off round with a Europa League victory?

    If Liverpool were to win the Europa League they are guaranteed to finish in the Champions League play-off phase in the new season.

    Nonetheless, if the winner of the Champions League qualifies for the group stages via their own domestic league i.e. finishing 3rd or above, then the Europa League winner will be endorsed into the Champions League group stage.

    Europa league qualification through Premier League position

    As it stands, these are the possible stipulations for each Premier League position from fifth to eighth:

    • Fifth - Whoever finishes 5th will qualify for the Europa League group stage unless Manchester City finish 5th and win the Champions League, as the team who finishes 4th will drop down into the Europa League.
    • Sixth - The team who finishes 6th will qualify for the Europa League third qualifying round if Manchester City finish in the top four, or were to win the Champions League.
    • Seventh - The team finishing 7th will qualify for the Europa League if Manchester United win the FA Cup and finish in the top six, and Manchester City finish in the top five, which is highly likely now.
    • Eighth - Things can get a bit complicated here, but the team who finish in 8th place can qualify for the Europa League if; Liverpool win the Europa League and finish seventh, Manchester City qualify for the Champions League by any means, and Manchester United win the FA Cup and finish in the top six.
    Currently Liverpool are in 8th position in the Premier League table, with a game in hand over 7th place Southampton.

    Winning the FA Cup

    As explained the winners of the FA Cup will automatically go into the Europa League group stage phase unless they have already qualified for Europe.

    If Manchester United win the FA Cup, and qualify for the Champions League by finishing 4th in the Premier League, then their Europa League place is passed on.

    If Manchester United win the FA Cup, and finish in the top six, their Europa League spot is again passed on.

    If Crystal Palace win the FA Cup, then they go into the Europa League. This means that there will be one less place available for Europa League qualification through a Premier League position.

    1. Norrkoping will meet Rosenborg in today's game played at Östgötaporten Stadium. In their last meeting, Rosenborg won the match with 3:1. I wonder if J. Gustafsson 's team prepared us with a surprise for today. Based on the past results of the two teams, I would expect for Rosenborg to perform well during this meeting and win this game. It should be interesting to see if Christian Gytkjær will score during this match as he has a good average in terms of goals scored / match.
