What if Champions League/Europa League winners qualify via domestic leagues?

  • If the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League winners qualify via their domestic league, the champions of the 11th-ranked association (Netherlands) enter the group stage.
  • If the 2019/20 UEFA Europa League winners qualify via their domestic league, the third-placed team of the fifth-ranked association (France) enter the group stage.

* An association may have a maximum of five teams in the UEFA Champions League. In the unlikely event of both the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League title holders coming from the same top-four association (Spain, England, Italy, Germany) and finishing outside of the top four of their domestic league, the fourth-placed team switches to the UEFA Europa League.
