REFE has a proposal, Who will go to the Champions League next season?
The REFE (Royal Spanish Football Federation)has solved one of the mysteries that kept many sleepless. Who will go to the Champions League next season?
The RFEF communicated after the Delegate Commission, an extension will be authorized to continue the competition beyond June 30; but it will be UEFA who has the last word on a possible definitive suspension of the championship due to the coronavirus.
Those classified for the Champions League, in that case, will always be decided according to the last classification; in which there is equality of matches played between the 20 teams. That means that, in the event that it is now suspended, FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Seville, and Real Sociedad would be the ones who would get the ticket to the Champions League, while Getafe and Atletico Madrid, fifth and sixth classified, would go to the Europa League.
The RFEF, in addition, has also detailed what would happen with the third place that gives access to the Europa League, which is known once the Copa del Rey final has been played, which would face Real Sociedad and Athletic Club. In case the final has been played, the champion would go unless he already goes to European competition; so the one who would have access would be the seventh classified.
The other scenario, however, would be the possibility that this final cannot be played. In that case, if the two finalist clubs are in the top 6 positions, so they would be classified, the seventh would go. If one of the two teams is not, that would go to the Europa League. Whereas, if neither of them was in European competition; it would be the one with the best position in the LaLiga classification who had access..
