The new era in football Champions League with 36 clubs starting from the 2024/25 season. Although this season they do not have a club in the final itself, Italian Serie A. there will be as many as five representatives in the premier edition of the new format of the most elite club competition.

UEFA decided to add maximum importance to the Europa League and the Conference League, so thanks to the special ranking of the two leagues, they get an additional place in the Champions League. Namely, the two national championships whose clubs collect the most points in UEFA competitions, get another place in the Champions League for the new season.

With the placement of Fiorentina in the semi-finals of the Conference League, and Atalanta in the semi-finals of the Europa League, Serie A officially received the fifth representative in the Champions League for the new season. In addition to Fiorentina and Atalanta, the Italians will also have in the final of the Europa League Roma, who eliminated Milan in the Italian quarterfinals.

Although there is no representative in the semi-finals of the Champions League (Bayern Munich - Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund - PSG), Italy certainly managed to secure an additional place in the elite.

It is interesting that Serie A could also get a sixth representative, which would be an absolute record. This could happen if Atalanta or Roma win the Europa League and do not finish in the top five of the league.

In addition to the Italians, according to the current situation, the Germans should also get an additional place in the Champions League, in the semi-finals of the Champions League are Bayern and Borussia Dortmund, and Bayer Leverkusen in the semi-finals of the Europa League.
