If Manchester United wins the Europa League, and Leicester City wins the Champions League (everything is possible), and both do not fall into the top 4 in the Premier League, then how many Premier League teams will play next year in the Champions League?
No more than five clubs can enter the UEFA Champions League from one national association.
Regarding the top three associations (currently Spain, Germany and England): if two clubs from one of these countries win the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League, and neither finish their domestic league in a position that qualifies them for the UEFA Champions League, the following will happen:
– The club that won the UEFA Champions League will go straight into the group stage.
– The UEFA Europa League winners will go into the UEFA Champions League play-offs.
– The club that had qualified for a UEFA Champions League play-off spot via their domestic league competition (i.e. finished fourth) transfer to the UEFA Europa League.
