The football season in Europe is on its last legs and so get gradually all of the places in the qualifying rounds of the Europa League and the Champions League next season completed.

Champions League

What is the Champions League, Anderlecht as the Belgian champion is directly qualified for the group stage. It comes with the draw anyway in pot 3 (of 4).

Pot 1 is reserved for the champions of the eight greatest competitions – one of them, so all opponent of Purple and white: Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Juventus, AS Monaco, Benfica, Spartak Moscow and Shakhtar Donetsk. Pot 2 is likely to consist of FC Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, PSG, Borussia Dortmund, Manchester City, FC Porto, Manchester United and Sevilla, which is the only one of those eight still have to qualify through to the fourth qualifying round.

In the same pot as Anderlecht is also the Swiss Basel, as well as Tottenham and possibly Napoli, Dynamo Kiev, Ajax, Olympiakos and Liverpool. Napoli may still be in pot two, if it qualifies, and Seville. For Tottenham, if both Sevilla if Napoli are to qualify for the group stage.

Those last five should be, just like Seville, still qualify, and are, with the exception of Olympiakos (because champion in Greece), possible opponents of Club Brugge in the non-kampioenenspoor of the fourth qualifying round of the Champions League, provided of course, that Blue-black the third qualifying round survives.

Club is in the non-kampioenenspoor of the third qualifying round seed and the Swiss Young Boys, in the French Nice, the Turkish Basaksehir, the Romanian Steaua Bucharest or the runner-up from Greece, perhaps PAOK.

To reach the West-flanders in the last preliminary round, are they as good as certainly not seed, and find them so may be one of the above topics. Also Dynamo Kiev and Ajax have yet to qualify for the fourth qualifying round. Manages Club Brugge in the group stage to reach, than it will be when the draw is likely in pot 4 there.

The third preliminary round will be played on 25 and 26 July () and August 1 and 2 (back), the fourth preliminary round will take place on 15 and 16 August, and 22 and 23 August (back). The draw for the group stage continues on 24 August.

Europa League

For the Europa League are the cards still not so clear. Zulte Waregem is a cup winner for sure of the group stage, but will be in the lowest pot four will be housed.

AA Ghent, that finished third in the Jupiler Pro League, two rounds to play, but is every seed and avoid so heavy crackers like AC Milan, Athletic Bilbao, Zenit Sint-Petersburg, PSV and Everton.

Also RC Genk or KV Oostende to the third qualifying round, they play Wednesday for the third and last ticket.

Also Club Brugge can still fished are in (the preliminary rounds of the Europa League as the group stage of the Champions League is not reached.
