Champions League and Europa League qualification: What Arsenal's FA Cup win means for Tottenham and Wolves

03 Aug

But it's worse news for Wolves. A Chelsea win would have handed them a Europa League second qualifying round spot after finishing seventh in the Premier League but they may miss out on European football completely because of Arsenal's triumph - unless they win this season's Europa League.

If Wolves were to win the Europa League, they would earn a Champions League group stage place for the 2020/21 season.

They are currently level with Olympiakos 1-1 after the first leg of their last-16 tie. The second leg takes place at Molineux on Thursday, August 6.

The Gunners' Wembley win means Spurs face a qualification campaign to reach the Europa League group stages.

Jose Mourinho's side will enter the second round of qualifying and face an additional three qualifying games, with trips to Belarus, Kazakhstan, Montenegro, Estonia and the Faroe Islands all possible.

It's a blow to Spurs' preparations for the new campaign with Mourinho facing selection headaches as he looks to plot his way through a grueling early season schedule.

Spurs' European campaign will start on September 17, just five days after the new Premier League season gets underway. ทรรศนะบอลวันนี้
