 Η Bundesliga πανηγυρΙζε ιοκσμσαιρενα&lambda κιτεπορζιτη

The elimination of Manchester City and Arsenal in the quarter-finals of the Champions League not only ruled out the possibility of an English club appearing in the final at Wembley on June 1, but also gave the German Bundesliga the edge over the English Premier League in the race to secure an extra place in next season's expanded Champions League.

The top two countries in UEFA's points table – the system used to decide how many places a country is entitled to in Europe's club competitions – will get five places, instead of four, in next season's Champions League and with Italy safe in top spot, the battle between Germany and England was, until Wednesday, very tight

However, Germany now look favorites with Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund having reached the semi-finals.

< p>Italy are on 18,428 with Germany on 17,642 while England are on 16,875 and that's ahead of Bayer Leverkusen's Europa League quarter-final second leg against West Ham later today (18/4).

Premier League -5th Tottenham can now hope that -4th – Aston Villa will win the Europa Conference League as they can be the only English team in Europe on Friday. They lead Lille 2-1 after the first leg of the quarter-finals.

There is a similar battle for fourth place in the Bundesliga between Borussia Dortmund and Leipzig, although it now looks like both could play in the Champions League.

The UEFA coefficient is based on results from the Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League with each win by a club from a country worth two points and a draw one.< /p>

Bonus points are accumulated by qualifying at various stages of each competition with the total then divided by the number of teams from that country in Europe.
