Barcelona, Bayern, Real Madrid - who else would play in European Super League based on UEFA coefficient?
- There have been talks of the creation of the unique competition not controlled by UEFA.
- Only elite clubs would be allowed to feature.
- Based on their respective UEFA coefficients, only four Spanish sides, including Barca, could take part in this non-existent tournament.
Last year, the talks of a sensational introduction of a new competition called European Super League have been leaked through Der Spiegel renowned revelations. Apparently, the European biggest teams, including Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and several Premier League sides, have agreed to create a new tournament which wouldn't be controlled by either UEFA or FIFA.
Naturally, the European Super League would allow only the top clubs to feature, thus limiting the presence of the sides outside the European top five. This could seriously affect the budgets of other leagues and teams which is why UEFA and FIFA are strongly against this idea. They have recently declared that any player taking part in Super League would be banned from featuring for his respective national team in the major international competitions.
Anyway, let's contemplate on the possibility of the existence of the Super League. Who would play there if only UEFA coefficients were taken into the account? Naturally, Barcelona and Real Madrid would get the nod but what about the others? One Reddit user delivers the verdict:
Spain could only have four participants in the European Super League based on the side's respective UEFA coefficients. England, meanwhile, could delegate as many as six sides.
Due to their three Champions League wins in a row, Real Madrid are the best-ranked side with 146,000 points. Barcelona and Bayern Munich proudly share second place with 127,000 points each. Fellow La Liga giants Atletico are not far behind with 125,000 points.
Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, both Manchester-based sides, Borussia Dortmund, FC Porto, Shakhtar Donetsk and even Zenit St.Petersburg would also feature in the European Super League. Does it really differ much from the current Champions League?
