The title will be particularly difficult to achieve for Anderlecht. But if the Mauves do better than the Union on the last day, they will finish 2nd. And that also means preliminary rounds for the Champions League!

There is a very important difference between 2nd and 3rd place, because if Anderlecht finishes 2nd, they will be in the Europa League anyway. Third place is synonymous with the play-offs for the Europa League. You should also know that Anderlecht have fallen outside the top 100 in the UEFA rankings due to their poor European results in recent years.

This means they will not be seeded in the third qualifying round for the Champions League and could therefore face heavyweights like RB Salzburg, Benfica or Glasgow Rangers. In this case, Anderlecht should already play in Europe at the beginning of August, and that is a real problem.

The Champions League or the Europa League next season for Anderlecht?

The first leg of the third qualifying round will be played on August 6 and 7. This would therefore mean that the club’s sporting director, Jesper Fredberg , should already have composed its squad (and therefore finished its transfer window or at least already made good progress) by then. Ideally around mid-July, in order to create automatisms between players.

The play-offs for the Europa League will take place on August 22 and 29, which would give him a little more time. Although CEO Sports would probably prefer the first scenario…

Because qualifying for the Champions League would give a huge boost to its budget. Indeed, the difference in prize money between the two competitions is extremely large.
