Recently, UEFA made headlines with the organisation finally changing the way teams are seeded! While previous tournaments relied on the UEFA coefficient system (a system in which previous Champions League/Europa League results are taken into account). The new current system is based heavily on “sporting merit” and takes into account the performance in a team’s own domestic league, as well as their performance in previous UEFA tournaments.
This may have come as a blow to teams like Arsenal and Manchester United (whose top-seed status comes from their high UEFA coefficient) however we will get the chance to see new, talented teams demonstrate how good they really are. Suffice to say, the change makes for more exciting football, as more deserving teams now get the chance to prove their metal!
