Europa League race closes with Man Utd qualifying

Erik ten Hag’s team will play in Europe next season despite finishing ninth. This is because FA Cup champions Manchester United have been invited to the Europa League. Manchester United plays at Wembley on Saturday.

Newcastle, ranked seventh, accidentally misses out on European football. Chelsea is sixth in the Conference League. Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool, and Aston Villa can play in the Champions League.

The primary modification will involve eliminating the group stage and establishing a solitary league round encompassing all participating teams, expanding the Champions League to accommodate 36 clubs.

Instead of the previous arrangement when three clubs played six matches against each other, each club will now have a minimum of eight matches against eight different opponents, with four matches at home and four away.

The top eight teams will advance directly to the knockout stage. So, teams ranked ninth through 24th will compete in a two-leg play-off to secure a spot in the final 16. There are no competitions available for teams consisting of 25 to 36 members. Therefore, the Europa League and Europa Conference League will comprise a total of 36 clubs, with comparable modifications being implemented.

Each team will compete in a total of eight Europa League matches against eight different opponents. Thus, the UEFA Conference League, formerly known as the Europa Conference League. Also, will consist of six league matches against six distinct adversaries. The UEFA Conference League matches are scheduled to take place from September to December.
