So what does a Villareal win mean for us ?

Find out for sure at some point tomorrow, but looks like we are not guaranteed Group Stage football without winning a tie.

Will go into the 3rd Qualifying Round in the Europa League.

So it's confirmed that Saints will be playing in the third qualifying round, and will face one of the following teams that drops from the Champions League qualifiers:

  • Austria Rapid Wien
  • Galatasaray
  • PSV Eindhoven
  • Sparta Prague
  • Midtjylland

The draw for their CL qualifiers will be made on June 16th and we'll be able to rule out whichever one of the above is drawn to play Celtic.

Not confirmed yet.

Tomorrow or Friday UEFA meet and confirm everyones placings. First season of the Conference League so people are just working it all out themselves just now.

I thought we were supposed to find out on Friday what was happening with the Europa cup.

UEFA's competition committee met in Porto, but I don't think there's anything to decide since Man Utd lost. Spain get 5 CL spots, and there will be a reshuffle in the conference league. Saints will play in the ELQR3 vs one of the CLQR2 league path losers (like we talked about before).

They did recommend getting rid of the away goals rule though.

I thought a Chelsea win tonight would mean something to our Europa league tie? 

Only if they had finished 5th in the league and were in Europa League spot then winning tonight would have meant they entered Champions League as holders.

Next date in the calendar is 16 June when Celtic and our five potential opponents will be drawn in the Champions League QR2. Whoever Celtic get can be ruled out as a potential trip.

Our draw will be on July 19th, which will rule out another couple of teams. We won't actually know where we're going until CLQR2 ends on the 27th or 28th of July, one week before the first leg.
