I don’t really understand how UEFA does their business in terms of Team rankings in regards to Champions League standings and seedings for each Season but I would hazard a guess now that it will not favour Liverpool if they qualify for next year’s Tournament.
I did believe that Liverpool would be ranked as 2nd seeds in the group stages because of their previous success in winning the Trophy five times also their excellent results in years when they finished in a losing Final in 2007 when Dirk Kuyt’s goal was not enough to prevent Milan from winning the Cup.
In our intervening years, we have not quailed for the Champions League since 2009 under Rafa Benitez. so this Season we finally look well set to do so under Manager Brendan Rodgers as we are currently 2nd behind Chelsea with a game in hand and only Man City to really worry about.
Third seed in The Champion’s League? I would take that any day.
