UEFA country coefficients

Postby MUTU » Tue Mar 17, 2009 7:43 pm

Germany are gaining some ground on Italy in the UEFA country coefficients. These are the current rankings which at the end of the season will decide who gets 4 CL places and who gets 3. This season, Italy have gained more points than Germany, but Italy only have 1 team (Udinese) representing them. Germany have 3 (Bayern, Bremen and Hamburg).

Next season, the points of the 04/05 season will be taken out of the equation. That means that the difference would be reduced by 3.429 points, which would put Germany 5 points behind Italy.

The following season, the points of the 05/06 season would be taken out of the equation. As things stand, Germany have the advantage due to a better scoring from 2006-2009 (up to now)

Voeller wants Germany to pass Italy in rankings

ROME, March 16 (Reuters) - Former Germany coach Rudi Voeller wants the Bundesliga to surpass Serie A and wrestle an extra Champions League slot from the Italian top flight.

Serie A is third in UEFA's ranking list behind the English and Spanish leagues, giving it four places in the competition, while Germany is fourth and has three slots.

The Bundesliga, though, is threatening to move up as no Italian clubs remain in the Champions League and their only survivors in the UEFA Cup are Udinese, who beat Zenit St Petersburg 2-0 in a last-16 first leg tie last week.

Bayern Munich qualified for the Champions League quarter-finals by beating Sporting 12-1 on aggregate and German rivals Werder Bremen and Hamburg SV are still in the UEFA Cup.

"We are happy that, after many years of having only three places in the Champions League, we're a bit nearer to Italy," Voeller told Reuters on Monday.

"Let's hope Bayern go through to the next round as well as Werder Bremen and Hamburg.

"We have a good chance of passing Italy and this would be great success for us," added the former striker who played for AS Roma between 1987-92 and was also briefly their coach in 2004.

Voeller, who as a player won the 1990 World Cup with Germany and the debut Champions League with Olympique Marseille in 1993, does not believe the last-16 exits of Roma, Juventus and Inter Milan show Serie A is in the doldrums.

"It's just a coincidence all three were knocked out," he said. "The Italian championship remains very strong."


SPENDING POWER

Bayern and Barcelona are tipped as the main rivals to the English quartet of holders Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal, who have all reached the last eight in the Champions League for the second consecutive year.

Voeller, who coached Germany between 2000-04, said the Premier League's extra spending power was a major factor behind its success.

"It's like when Italian teams won most of the European competitions in the 1990s," he said at an Adidas event presenting the ball for May's Champions League final at Rome's Stadio Olimpico.

"For years now in England they have been paying a lot more than here, Spain, Germany and France. This means there is also a high probability you win trophies so it's no coincidence there are four English teams in the quarter-finals.

"The money helps you achieve certain objectives but you still have to work well, coach the team well, buy the right players.

"Naturally it makes things hard for the others if you have a team like Chelsea who buy a player like (Andriy) Shevchenko for 50 million euros ($64.62 million) in 2006 and can then buy someone else a few months later when they realise it was a mistake."

I think the Italian mafia is controlling the UEFA draws. Bayern gets Barca, Hamburg gets Man City, Werder gets Udinese. After beating Milan, Werder should win but we know how German teams don't do their best against Italians. Udinese barely made it past Dortmund though.
