Manchester City’s two-year ban from the Champions League is set to have a huge effect on the race for European
qualification from the Premier League.
City where expelled from Europe Elite’s competition on Friday night, although they will remain in the competition in the current campaign.
Should the decision stand, then
Champions League qualification will drop down to fifth place in the Premier League should City finish in the top four.

Should City also theoretically qualify for the Europa League via winning either the FA Cup or League Cup, then that
European spot would transfer back to the league, meaning that European qualification could go down as far as eighth spot in the table.
City have reacted angrily to the verdict, and will appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
