Indice UEFA : La France sous la menace des Pays-Bas and could lose a direct place for C1 2024-25

Monaco’s elimination from the Ligue des champions is very bad news for French football. Pire, le club de la Principauté was fated by a Dutch formation. Avec cette défaite sur la pelouse du PSV Eindhoven (2-3, ap) Tuesday evening, la France voit sa quinquième place au classification de l’indice UEFA très sérieusement être menacée par les Pays-Bas (ndlr: 49,997 against 48,100 points).
If the trend were to reverse from here to the end of the season, the consequences would be heavy for the tricolor football: instead of having four representatives (not three directly) for the group phase of the Ligue des champions new look in 2024-25, two clubs would be qualified directement et le troisième devrait franchir deux tours prélimlinaires (comme c’est actuellement le case).

The UEFA index is calculated on the European results of various countries in recent seasons. Or, dance one year, in the 2017-18 season we will be plus comptabilisée. Si les clubs neerlandais and experienced an exercice catastrophique, l’OM is especially in the final of Ligue Europa. This season, Pays-Bas can have, like France with PSG and OM, two clubs in the group stages of C1: l’Ajax Amsterdam and PSV Eindhoven, s’il eliminate les Glasgow Rangers in the playoffs.

Attention Portugal

Juca, the third preliminary return round of the Ligue Europa Conference between Twente and Dundee United will follow closely, especially since the formation ecossaise l’a emporté à l’aller (1-0). Par ailleurs, he will have to take into account the results of the Portuguese clubs (7th with 45,716 points). Because France also loses two places in the UEFA ranking, the consequences would be catastrophic for Ligue 1: only the premier would qualify directly for the group stage of C1 and the deuxième would have to play a three round .

This season, Portugal presents less than two representatives in the group stage of Ligue des champions: Porto, Sporting and Benfica to eliminate Dynamo Kyiv in the playoffs. However, in C4, Vitoria Guimaraes is in unfavorable ballotage against Hajduk Split (3-1 in Croatia in all). In 2022-23, PSG, OM (C1), Monaco, Nantes, Rennes (C3) and Nice (C4) will have a heavy responsibility for the future of French football.
