The fate of MU and Chelsea will be like if Wolves win the Europa League is a problem that many football fans care about.
In early August, Wolves and other representatives of English football will return to the continental arena to kick the unfinished part. Particularly “Wolves”, after a 1-1 draw in the first leg, they will rematch Olympiakos in the second round of the Europa League round 1/8.
For many people, the fact that Wolves is still present in the knockout round of the prestigious second tournament in the club-age continent is quite unexpected. However, looking at the force that coach Nuno Espírito Santo has in hand, and how they knocked down Espanyol in the round of 16, it is not surprising that Wolves make a deal in this tournament.
Of course, if one can advance to the final and then crowned, coach Santo’s team will automatically win a place in the Champions League next season. This rule applies from the 2015/16 season.
The question is raised by many, what will the fate of MU and Chelsea if Wolves win the Europa League? The answer is okay, “Red Devils” and the Blues will still be present in the Champions League next season despite UEFA giving a ticket to “Wolves”.
According to the UEFA allocation, the Premier League has a maximum of 5 Champions League places in case one of their representatives wins the Europa League. Because Wolves are outside the Top 4, 4 tickets of Liverpool (champion), Man City (runner-up), MU (3rd) and Chelsea (4th) are not affected.
Three years ago, the Premier League also had five representatives to the Champions League after MU defeated Ajax in the 2016/17 Europa League final. That season, the “Red Devils” finished sixth in the Premier League.
