The Champions League success of Red Bull Salzburg is not convenient for the Netherlands. With Salzburg’s victory over Maccabi Tel Aviv (3-1), Austria is approaching the Netherlands on the coefficient ranking of UEFA.
The Austrian team was in the play-offs for a ticket for the group stage of the Champions League with 3-1 too strong for the Israeli opponent and therefore brings in extra points on the coefficient ranking of UEFA. A win in the play-offs earns 0.2 points, but when placed before the group stage of the billion dollar ball, a club receives a bonus of 0.8 points.
It is important for the Netherlands to maintain its place in the top ten of the coefficient ranking list. Then the 2022 champion can enter the Champions League directly, just like in 2021. The elimination of KAA Gent against Dinamo Kiev on Tuesday evening was in any case good news for the Netherlands. Belgium is still ahead of the Netherlands for the time being.
Austria is getting closer and closer to the Netherlands in the coefficient ranking list due to the victory of Salzburg. The Netherlands must also watch out for number eleven Ukraine, which will participate in the Champions League with two teams (Shakhtar Donetsk and Dinamo Kiev) this season.
The current middle section of the coefficient ranking:
8. Belgium 32,500 (2,000)
9. NETHERLANDS 31,900 (1,900)
10. Austria 31,125 (2,000)
11. Ukraine 29,100 (2,800)
12. Turkey 28,800 (1,800)
13. Scotland 28,125 (3,250)
