Juventus’ point loss being put back in place is a big boost for Arsenal in the Champions League for next season. The Old Lady had a 10-point deduction that was made earlier this year overturned, but after a recent court decision, the Old Lady’s total for the 2022/23 season will go down by ten points again.
Juventus court ruling boosts Arsenal in Champions League
This choice will likely significantly affect Arsenal and where they will be put in the Champions League pot. Before the penalty, Juventus was in second place in Serie A with 69 points and three games left to play. If they lost 10 points, they would drop to seventh, five points behind AC Milan in fourth place.
If the top four teams stayed the same, Arsenal would be in Pot 2 for the Champions League group stage draw, probably giving them a good choice of teams to play. The teams will be put into four groups based on their seeds. Pot 1 will comprise the current holders, the winners of the UEFA Europa League, and the champions of the six highest-ranked countries that didn’t enter through one of the 2022/23 continental titles.
Pots 2–4 will comprise the clubs with the highest coefficient rankings. Sevilla and AS Roma could still affect Arsenal’s move from Pot 3 to Pot 2 if they finish in a spot that qualifies them for the next round.
