The UEFA coefficients table: Belgium breaks away from Ukraine

Таблица коэффициентов УЕФА: Бельгия отрывается от Украины

Draws “Mariupol” and “Dawn” in matches of the third qualifying round of the Europa League against AZ Alkmaar and CSKA Moscow respectively, has allowed Ukraine to earn for the table of UEFA coefficients one point. But opponents of the Ukrainians for a place in the top 8 scored points.

So, three Ukrainian clubs brought Ukraine only one point (in qualifying for a win receives one point for a draw of 0.5). So, the assets of the Ukraine is 7 points, or 1.4 points (Shakhtar already has four deposits for a place in the group stage of the Champions League). And while ninth place in the ranking.

But the Belgians can boast of the best achievements here and win “Bruges” over “Dynamo” in the Champions League, as well as “Antwerp” over Viktoria plzeň in the Europa League. Draw in and “Gent” which on departure was opposed by the Cyprus AYOL. When this goal in this match was scored by the Ukrainian Roman Yaremchuk. Consequently, the gap from Belgium, in eighth place, is 1.5 points (7.5 points).

But departing from Turkey increased to 0.5. “Basaksehir” lost to Olympiacos in the Champions League qualification Trabzonspor only in the end of the match rescued a tie against the Czech “Sparta” on the road, and “Yeni Malatyaspor” also on departure has conceded to the Serbian “Partisan”.

We emphasize that after the reform of the European Cup and the implementation in 2021 third of the tournament and eighth and ninth of the Association in the UEFA coefficients table have exactly the same quotas in European competitions. Namely, the participation of five clubs: two in the Champions League (one in group stage, one in the third qualification), one in the Europa League (play-off round) and two in the Europa League-2 (one – in the third qualifying round and one in the second qualification). But 10th place is losing certain privileges (second prize winner starts in the UEFA Champions League on stage before). Not to mention the 11th, which does not allow the Association to automatically delegate your club into the group stage of the Champions League.
