    David Luiz slid in to clear off the line with Kepa beat. And Zappacosta just did the same off of a corner.

    Luiz tracked back and made an insane goal line clearance. Now Zapacosta did the same but not as spectacular.

    In terms of an amazing visual, Frankfurt scoring at the goal their fans are at would be top notch

    Oo a close one. No VAR again? Is that what the commentator just said? Some are and some aren't in Europa, right?
    "
    That is because the technology will not be implemented in the competition until the final, which takes place at the Baku Olympic Stadium in Azerbaijan on May 29.

    And while the Champions League will feature VAR from the play-off stage onwards next season, Uefa reiterated last month that they are still not planning to extend the use of the technology to the entirety of the Europa League proper (including the group stage) until the 2020/21 campaign.

    After these results this week, does England's coefficient get much of a bump?

    It doesn't for next year, but the coefficient is based off years of results of each countries representatives

    No I mean based on the league, top 4 goes into the group and not the playoff

    Though I think if Arsenal were to win the final that 4th place could get bumped to playoff

    Looked it up Ned Yocho and it’s top 4 from the top 4 leagues go into group.

    England was solidly #2 behind Spain and way ahead of 5th so don’t think it’ll matter much

    With the way the UEFA coefficient is set up there's basically no way that England, Spain, Germany, and Italy don't get 4 automatic qualifiers for CL every year unless Ligue 1 steps their game up.

    I mean order is irrelevant really for top 4 but it’s possible.

    Spain had almost a 7 point gap on the season that will drop off the coefficient rankings and I imagine England should have a nice gap this season.

    For this year (cycle is past 5 seasons) Spain was about 19.5 points ahead

    Liverpool and they were in playoff.

    So if Chelsea win Sunday then Arsenal and Liverpool win the finals, Spurs to playoff.

    If Spurs and Arsenal win the finals, does Chelsea get bumped to the playoff even if they finish 3rd?

    Spurs were also near the bottom of Pot 2 and Liverpool in Pot 3 this year so winning and getting into Pot 1 could be nice for their draw.


    Looking at club coefficient I think Pool if they were to lose the league and the final is pot 2, Arsenal or Chelsea would be near bottom of pot 2 and if Spurs don’t win the final, they’ll likely be pot 3.

    Regarding club coefficients for Spurs. Spoilering because I know many don't give a fuck and this isn't the right thread but here's the breakdown:
    Spurs need 3 of the 4 teams ahead of us in coefficient (Roma, Sevilla, Arsenal, Porto) to not make the CL group stage (so this includes failing in the playoff stage) in order to make Pot 2 (assuming we lose to LIV, if we win then Pot 1 obviously).

    "
    In an nutshell, hope that Roma and Sevilla miss out of top four, and then hope that somehow Porto win their league or if they finish 2nd they fail to make it through their two qualifying games.

    If all else fails we have to hope that Chelsea beat Arsenal in the final of the EL.
    "
    Roma sits 3 points and a lot of GD off fourth, three matches left (Juventus, Sassuolo, Parma)
    Sevilla sits 3 points off fourth, two matches left (Atl. Madrid & Bilbao)
    Porto sits 2 points off Sporting for first, two matches left (relegation Nacional and 3rd place Sporting)
    And of course Arsenal. Cheering for Chelsea again.

    Arsenal don’t impact your pot. If Arsenal win, they’re in pot 1, if Chelsea win they’re in pot 1 (they’re also ahead of you from what I saw so they’d be the same as Arsenal even if the pot 1 thing wasn’t a thing)

    Does Europa League winner auto-get a pot 1 or does it just get a spot in the CL period? ManU won EL in 2017-18 and was in Pot 2, right?

    Oh and the thing is that Chelsea is in already because of 3rd. Arsenal being out of CL would mean one less team in front of us, bump up one slot.
