A team may qualify for European competitions through more than one route. In all cases, if a club qualified to participate in the UEFA Champions League then the club does not enter the UEFA Europa League. The UEFA Europa League place is then granted to additional team club. If a team qualifies for European competition through both winning a cup and league placing, the UEFA Europa League place will go to the highest placed league team which is not qualified for the European tournament. The top three ranked associations may qualify for the fourth berth if both the Europa League and Champions League are from that association and do not finish hurdel for European competition through their domestic performance. In that case, the fourth placed team will join the Europa League instead of the Champions League, in addition to their other qualifying teams.
