As of Friday, the top four leagues ( England, Spain, Germany & Italy ) will all be granted four automatic spots in the Champions League group stages, Gazzetta dello Sport underline. This will come into play from the 2018/19 season. The whole idea stems from the idea of the Champions League being more of a Super League.
Moreover, the changes will see great financial benefits to those involved. Yearly, Europe’s premier club competition is worth 2.7 billion and this money will be shared with the clubs far more than before.
