And all the latest league updates are included. More champions are known, more CL participants/candidates are clear. The CL Play offs appear to become interesting! 10 tough teams for teh champions, but what about the non -champions, big names again! And how strong are the Iberian leagues, can Real Sociedad and Pacos Ferreira bring some trouble in this round?
My own PSV just not seeded this round. Maybe Lyon failing could help, or AC Milan or Schalke, all of that is still possible and there would be more unknown teams in the CL-play offs.
Finaly a new update. I hope there are still some people interested in this and heven't fled to other sites. Well I won't blame them. But anyway here is a new update of the CL + EL candidates for the next season!
Hi all, I'm trying to reviatalize this site. For that I need to stop the unwanted spamming. Blocking IP's is not enough unfortunately. Therefor I have to restrict epople from posting here if they haven't subscribed here. I hope that that will help more.
I added a list of al teams that participate in the european matches and gave the endstage which the teeam is expected to reach according to my predictions.
The list is order by country alfabetically. Behind the country name is the number of points the teams gather for the countrycoefficient (so without the bonus points the team gets for reaching a certain qualification stage or even the groupstage)
Spain has just been crowned again as European Champion, finaly they showed how good they are in the final.
Tomorrow starts Q1 already of the new season. I have updated the countryprediction with Bursaspor in and Olomouc out. Let's hope there won't be any more intervenienices from now anymore. It would mean no good for Football...
And Tre Penne is the surprising(?) winner of the San Marino Campionato. They ended only 3rd in group B, but did not lose 1 singel game in the Play offs, just 1 on penalties, but by the second chance rulein the San Marino Play offs came in the final anyway and beat the Libertas that had beaten them on penalties before.
It seems all clear now, maybe just official confirmation that Zeta Golubovci became 3rd in Montenegro, as there is still a mathematical way for Mogren Budva to become 3rd, but I'm not counting on that to happen.
All is further clear now, all we need is confirmation by the Uefa, that all the participants gor their license, and that the shifting because of the titleholders is handled correctly.
There is still 1 team missing for CL: THe San Marino team. Will it be Livbertas or Tre Penne. It will be decided on May 29. ALmost there.
In EL we still miss confirmation of 3 teams: The other San Marino of above will join EL, plus for Malta Qormi if they win the cup or otherwise Floriana if Hibernians win the cup. And finaly the cupwinner of Moldova: Milsami-Ursides or CSCA Rapid. Both cupfinals will be played today...
And more leagues are closed. We just miss a couple of them now. Hungary, Montenegro and San Marino still have to finsh their league. And there a still 8 cupfinals to be played.
Now all that's rest is waiting for the draw. In the mean time the EC is coming up. I don't have the feeling yet, but thinking the final is 2 days before Q1 starts means I'll pass the time :)
It seems the top-countries send some low-ranked teams into non-champions Q4. Could this mean that there will be some surprises in the first KO round? It might, but I fear they will be just slaughtermaterial in the next KO round....
Pot 1 is completely direct filled, and Pot 2 almost too. Olympiakos and Ajax mayb hope a little for a faux pas of Braga and Dinamo Kiev. Normally a Qualifier from a top-5 country is hard. Will these newbies be too? (Can you call Udinese and Lille newbies?)
New update in the weekend only probably (not much changes expected anymore... Read more »
What a surprise. Chelsea to manage also to block Bayern's attack. Incredible come back within 5 minutes. Of course exchange-error of the century (Muller->Van Buyten), but nevertheless. Congratulations to the come back of Chelsea these last months. I feel sorry for Tottenham.
TOday was a big day, lots of league played , lots ended totday, other had cupfinals. Together with the now certainty of CHelsea bringing the 4th into the CL-GS. I had to reorganis it all.
In CL we just miss the champions of Bulgaria, Montenegro and San Marino
In EL we miss a couple of more, but also there it is almost completely filled. And look at the (expected) pot1 there, Inter,Liverpool, Atletico, Lyon, Marseille, Sporting, CSKA, Tottenham, Leverkusen, Bordeaux, PSV and Twente. And let's not think about pot 2 teams then....
slow days before some real changes will happen. Tomorrow there are a lot of leguematches and cupfinals to be played. Then we will make a big step in filling in the names of the teams.
For now I have moved up in EL the teams that are certain to move up a level(cupwinners of Switzerland, Austria, Moldova and Lithuania), and also the cupwinner from Russia. That is as if Barcelona would have won the cupfinal vs. Bilbao.
I haven't moved up any teams yet in CL. Tonight will make that step some clearer, though in the case Chelsea wins we'll have to wait if Uefa will move the teams like we think that will happen...
