After five rounds of the group stage, it became clear that some teams that were considered as contenders for victory in the Champions League left the tournament ahead of schedule and are now sent to the Europa League. There are conditionally weaker opponents here, so the losers of the Champions League group stage have a chance to sweeten the bitter pill of defeat a little. It is to these commands that our review is devoted.

Third place as a verdict
Today, several teams, among which there are real football giants, left the Champions League ahead of schedule and go to finish the European season in the Europa League. In our opinion, the most unexpected at such an early stage is the relegation of the following clubs:
The Catalans traditionally claim the Champions League title at the beginning of each season, but in recent years, things have not been going well for the “pomegranate” in the international arena. And now Barcelona crashed out of the Champions League, winning only one match out of five. History repeats itself last year. Then the Catalans also dropped out of the Champions League, and in the ¼ finals of the Europa League they lost to the German Eintracht. This year, the “pomegranate” will try to avoid such a disgrace and adequately perform at least in the second most important European Cup.
Another iconic loser of 2022. At the same time, Juve still needs to cling to third place in the group. In the event of relegation to the playoffs of the LE, the Turinites have no choice but to fight for this title, especially since things in the national championship are also not going well. The coach of the “old lady” Massimiliano Allegri will not be forgiven by the bosses of the club for such a failure, and the reputation of the Turin superstars will be tarnished.
Wolves’ latest high-profile success was the championship in the 2020-2021 season. On the international stage, the club won the Europa League in 2018, which was little consolation after losing the Champions League finals in 2014 and 2016. And now a team with such a history and a very high-quality line-up cannot leave a group that is far from being the strongest, giving way to Brugge and Porto in the Champions League. There are also few chances for a La Liga title. But in the Europa League, Atletico can show themselves in the best possible way and repeat the success of two years ago.
Until recently, the Dutch shone in the semifinals of the Champions League, and today they may even be left without a European spring. The team completely failed the group stage of the Champions League, scoring only three points in five matches and is now fighting with another club from our list (Rangers) for the right to play in the Champions League. To some extent, Ajax’s failures can be explained by the loss of leaders. Ryan Grafenberg and Nusair Mazroui left for Bayern, Sebastian Alle will continue his career in Dortmund. However, fans and bosses of the club are eager for new victories, the “Jews” have certain chances for the Europa League trophy.
The Light Blues have not scored a single point in their group yet. We would not have mentioned the Scots in our ranking of the losers of the Champions League, claiming to win the Europa League, if Rangers had not reached the final of this European Cup last year. The team has only recently recovered from the shock of the club’s bankruptcy and relegation, but is already making some headway on the international stage. The chances of the Rangers repeating last year’s success are not so great, but anything is possible. On condition. certainly. That the Scots will be able to take at least third place in the group.
