The UEFA Club Ranking is a list of arrangements that are drawn up by UEFA which makes it possible to compare the strengths and weaknesses of the various clubs.
The UEFA club ranking is arrived at following the value of a team being calculated from the total of the individual annual coefficients of the past five years or 20% of the country’s UEFA Country Rankings.
The arrangement from the apex to the least in the list is now determined by whichever team has the highest coefficient.
This article reveals the current UEFA club ranking and the coefficient that each team has occupied over the calculation period of the past 5 years.
The page contains the top ten and the first three clubs and no. 5 in the list are currently competing in the UEFA Champions League competition.
Manchester United, Roma, and Juventus are still in the Europa League while the remaining three clubs have been eliminated.
Manchester City (UEFA coefficient ranking:1)
Manchester City wasted no time in securing their place in the knockout stage for the tenth successive season.
Even though it hasn’t been all smooth sailing for Pep Guardiola’s Premier League Champions. The Cityzens are a stronghold capable of demolishing any team on their way to winning trophies this season.
Guardiola needed spectacular revenge against former Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel who thwarted his hope of winning the Champions League in 2021 and he got it.
Manchester City disgraced Tuchel’s Bayern Munich battalion yesterday, April 11 in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals.
After a shocking display against Bayern in the last-8, Haaland sensationally rediscovered his goalscoring touch slamming in the third goal after Rodri and Bernardo Silva have put the English club ahead.
With the current unyielding form of Manchester City, Guardiola is likely to hoist the Champions League trophy with an England club this time around.
Bayern Munich (UEFA coefficient ranking:2)
Bayern Munich emerged from arguably the toughest group unscathed and came out with flying colors, defeating one of the toughest rivals PSG in the last-16.
Slotted into the Bavarians hot seat between the round of 16 and quarter-finals, many thought Thomas Tuchel’s arrival would initiate a replica of what he did at Chelsea in 2020/21 – take over mid-season and win the Champions League.
It remains to be seen whether Bayern would have a comeback after falling flat in their first encounter against Manchester City.
Chelsea (UEFA coefficient ranking:3)
Former Blues manager Graham Potter built on the foundations laid by Thomas Tuchel, typically playing with a powerful back three and the double No6 pairing in front.
Given the quality of new players in the squad, the Blues are a dangerous prospect, especially in the Champions League.
The Blues received a huge boost from the victory against Dortmund, which felt like it rejuvenated the fans’ hope in the team following domestic disappointment.
With Lampard back as the Blues interim coach, Chelsea will be expected to rise from their disappointment and do more harm against Real Madrid tonight.
Chelsea have a good record of winning eight of their previous 11 Champions League quarter-final ties.
Liverpool (UEFA coefficient ranking:4)
Liverpool’s erratic form can potentially cost them European football next season.
Jurgen Klopps’ Reds are known to be one of the premier League favorites, but things have been difficult for them.
This season’s performances so far suggest that the team is highly in their worse scenario.
With the Reds out of the Champions League and sitting 8th in the Premier League table, only time can tell if Klopp and his men would be able to turn things around for what would be an incredible resurgence.
Meanwhile, Liverpool vs Arsenal Premier League show at Anfield left many fans craving for more as both teams demonstrated a pulsating performance on Sunday evening, April 9.
Real Madrid (UEFA coefficient ranking:5)
The man who led Los Blancos to ‘La Décima’ in 2014 came back for a second spell in 2021 summer and rewrote history by becoming the first manager to win the European Cup/UEFA Champions League four times.
Cruised to the La Liga title last season as well makes Ancelotti the first coach to win championships in Italy, England, France, Germany, and Spain.
Whether the current Champions League winner will defend their title will be seen by 8 pm tonight when they lock horns with Chelsea at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.
Paris Saint Germain(UEFA coefficient ranking:6)
PSG led by their star attacking trio of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, and Neymar, have failed to progress in the Champions League for a second straight season.
PSG have never won the Champions League.
The 2022/23 elimination suffered at the hands of Bayern Munich makes it now 15 times in the competition without winning, including the previous 11 tournaments in a row.
The Parisians may be on course to add an 11th Ligue 1 title in 2023, but the Champions League has been their ultimate goal in recent seasons.
Meanwhile, they’ve come up short again.
Manchester United(UEFA coefficient ranking:7)
Manchester United recorded their 17th victory of the season with a dominant performance over Everton in the Premier League.
The victory saw Erik ten Hag’s men cement their claim for a top-four spot in the Premier League and Champions League competition next season seems very feasible.
Manchester United are up against Sevilla in their next game in the first leg of the quarter-finals of the Europa League.
The Red Devils will return to Premier League action against Nottingham Forest on April 16 before playing the second leg of the Europa League on 21st April.
Manchester United will then be up against Brighton in an FA Cup semi-final.
FC Barcelona (UEFA coefficient ranking:8)
Despite the Catalans’ disappointments in Europe, Barcelona have had a successful stint this season in terms of domestic competitions.
However, they were thrashed 4-0 by rivals Real Madrid at Camp Nou last Wednesday, which saw them miss out on a place in the final of the Copa del Rey.
A draw against Girona means Barcelona are now 13 points ahead of Real Madrid with only 10 more league matches left.
Juventus (UEFA coefficient ranking:9)
Juventus were eliminated from the Champions League group stages for the first time since 2013 following a 4-3 doom at the hands of Benfica.
The Old Lady conceded three goals during the first half of the match for the first time in the club’s Champions League history.
Juventus will continue their Europa League campaign in the round of 8 against Sporting at Allianz Stadium on Thursday, April 13, kickoff is 8 pm.
Roma (UEFA coefficient ranking:10)
Jose Mourinho’s time in charge of the Giallorossi couldn’t have gone much better for Roma.
In his maiden campaign with the club last season, the Portuguese tactician led the club to its first-ever European trophy with victory in the inaugural UEFA Europa Conference League.
Roma are one step up from winning the Europa League competition and their struggle for a return to the Champions League could pay off.
Jose Mourinho’s men will face Feyenoord in the Europa League round of eight on Thursday, April 13 at de Kuip stadium with kickoff scheduled for 5:45pm.
