Two leagues will be rewarded with an extra place in next season's Champions League based on performance in Europe this season, all part of the revamp to expand it to a 36-team competition -- but who is likely to benefit?
With the knockout stages of the Champions League (UCL), Europa League (UEL) and Europa Conference League (UECL) in the round-of-16 stage, we're starting to get a clearer picture of which leagues could get the two places.
That said, we're still a long way from finding out who is going to get an extra spot -- and it could yet go down to the wire.
This article will be updated throughout the season to track the race for the extra spots.
It's about the best average coefficient of all teams taking part in Europe for each country. The two leagues with the best score get an extra place.
Each win is worth two coefficient points, a draw gets you one, and you get nothing for a defeat.
There are also bonus points for getting to certain stages, which help give extra prominence to those teams who do well in the higher-profile competitions.
Champions League bonus points 4 - Group stage participation 5 - Round of 16 1 - QF, SF, final
Europa League bonus points 4 - Group winners 2 - Group runners-up 1 - Round of 16, QF, SF, final
Europa Conference League bonus points 2 - Group winners 1 - Group runners-up 1 - SF, final
The points gained by all clubs are added together, and that total score is divided by the number of clubs a country has in Europe in the season. That gives the coefficient average.
For example, if a country has 35 coefficient points and seven teams in Europe, its score is 5.00 for the table (35 / 7 = 5.00.)
