psv titeFrom next season pot one for the group stage draw will include the winners of the top seven league’s ranked by the EUFA co-efficient system, joined by the reigning Champions League winners.

Should the reigning Champions League winners also win one of the top seven European Leagues, then the eighth place will fall to the champion of the eighth seeded league, which is currently Netherlands. So with Barcelona, Bayern Munich, PSG, and Juventus all topping their leagues and in the Champions league last eight, PSV could sneak into pot one.

This will be the only chance for a Dutch club to take advantage of this rule change for a while, with the Eredivisie set to be overtaken by the Ukrainian and Belgian leagues in the co-efficient from next year.
