    He used to celebrate with a Spider-Man mask at Dortmund. Guess he's updated it now

    It is if a side finishes outside the Top 4 and wins the CL, it would prevent 4th place qualifying for the CL. That is what happened when Liverpool won it and was it Spurs missed out. It would be the Top 3, the CL winner and the EL winner.

    I mean, to nullify this risk, we need English teams to be out of Europa League

    Well yes and it would have helped if we finished third as well.

    Arsenal going through is an excellent result for us. The longer they stay in, the better our chances against them and Chelsea for top 4.

    Is it good thing to wish Rennes to score so we, well, they can have 30 more minutes of football to play?

    Our next league match is in 17 days time so I don't think 30 extra minutes is going to make too much difference

    I keep seeing this and it's absolutely incorrect. Only a non-top 4 finishing side winning the CL (basically only Spurs) can stop us getting into CL. The EL winner have their own slot independent of what happens with their league.

    Benfica and Porto are masters of PR. I am watching this Felix kid and i don't see any difference between him and lets say Chong or Greenwood.
    *i admit that this is only 2nd time that i watch him play*

    Rennes lost that tie in the first leg. They’re a disgrace.

    The problem is, that 5 slots is a max quota. If spurs win CL while finishing outside top 4, and English clubs don’t win EL, than England will have 5 teams in CL and 4th spot qualifies.

    So Frankfurt have now dominated Shakhtar, Marseille, Lazio, and Inter in this Europa League campaign. What a season for them!

    Nope. That's not how it works. In that case 4th place would miss out and England would only have 4 teams in the CL

    If two English sides win the CL & the EL with neither finishing in the top four, the fourth placed side drops to the EL.

    Otherwise the top four all qualify for next season’s CL.

    Only way to have 5 clubs in CL is that club outside top 4 clubs wins EL. If club outside top 4 wins CL then 4th team goes in EL

    Nope. I repeat; only way to have 5 clubs is through EL. If lets say United win CL and finish 5th then 4th club loses CL spot

    Edit: chelsea did it to Spurs when they won it under Di matteo

    The 4th place CL slot is only lost if both the CL & EL winners are from the PL and outside the top 4.

    They changed the rules after Spurs missed out that season.
