      The other posts have not been decided yet.

      The final is to he held at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey on 30 May 2020. This is the second UEFA Champions League final hosted at the stadium, after the 2005 UEFA Champions League Final.

      Frankly, Mr Shankly

      Disappointing for us is we won't being seeing Porto this season, they were knocked out by Russian side Krasnodar while Celtic and Dynamo Kyiv were also eliminated in the qualifying rounds. Play-off round match up looks like this

      Champions Path
      Dinamo Zagreb vs Rosenborg
      CFR Cluj v Slavia Prague
      Young Boys vs Red Star Belgrade
      APOEL vs Ajax

      League Path
      LASK vs Club Brugge
      Olympiacos v Krasnodar

      Rather tough on Ajax.  A goal away from facing us in the final and now having to play qualifying round?

      When you consider the influx of these Eastern Teams that make it through to the group stage one would think Ajax had already earned their spot.

      I found that shocking as well. 4 teams from EPL, La Liga, Bundesliga and Serie A straight into the group stage. Russian league’s runner-up even qualifies automatically. But not the CHAMPION of Eredivisie? Hell apperntly even Austrian champion gets a spot. It really doesn’t make sense.

      Would be based on the uefa coefficients, so if said league like the Scottish league are constantly sh*te in CL then the teams have to qualify.
