Who is winner Danenza

The qualification mode for the Champions League is actually clear: This year's winner will automatically receive a place in the premier league of European football in the coming year.

But what happens if the winner is already qualified for the competition through their domestic league? In this year's constellation, this special case can be best explained using the example of Ajax Amsterdam.

If the Champions League winner has already qualified for the premier class, the champions of the association that started the season 11th in the UEFA five-year ranking will be given a starting place. Since the Netherlands were at this point in 2018/19, Ajax Amsterdam would benefit.

The record champions from the Dutch capital were first in the table in the canceled Eredivisie season and thus received a place in the Champions League playoffs. The Dutch only have to compete if Olympique Lyon or Naples win the Champions League.

Of the last remaining clubs in the Champions League, the two clubs are the only ones that could not qualify for the premier class in their domestic league.

What happens in the Europa League?

In a similar scenario in the Europa League, the French from Stade Rennes should be happy this year.

This time, the league that came fifth in the UEFA five-year standings will benefit - and from this league the third can start directly in the Champions League.

For Ajax Amsterdam and Stade Rennes, it is hoped that no outsider wins the respective title that does not qualify for the Champions League.
