[Official] Italy Will Be Represented By Five Teams In The Next Season Of The Champions League

Serie A have secured an additional spot for the Champions League next season, bringing the total number of Italian teams in the competition to five. This achievement is part of the restructured Champions League format, which now includes 36 teams.

The allocation of extra spots is based on performance across European competitions. Italy's strong showing, with three teams reaching the semifinals of the European competitions, ensured its place among the top two leagues to receive these additional places. Although no Italian team advanced to the Champions League quarterfinals, AS Roma and Atalanta's progression in the Europa League, along with Fiorentina's presence in the Europa Conference League's last four, contributed to Serie A earning the highest coefficient score among all leagues.

On the other hand, the Premier League initially favored to secure the second spot after Italy, faced setbacks in the quarterfinals as four out of its five remaining clubs were eliminated. Only Aston Villa remains active in the Europa Conference League.

This turn of events benefits Germany, as the Bundesliga moves into second place due to successes like Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen defeating English clubs, with Borussia Dortmund advancing to the Champions League.

Ligue 1 also remains competitive with two teams still in contention, potentially surpassing England in total coefficient score.

For Germany to claim the remaining spot, they need to earn 0.488 coefficient points. Furthermore, the team in fifth position in Serie A, currently held by Roma, will now secure a spot in the Champions League, potentially increasing the number of Italian teams to six if the Europa League victor hails from an Italian team outside the top five.
