Hi,

There are 32 teams in the Champions League group phase, but there are only 16 teams in the qualifying phase.

How are the 16 teams already in the group phase chosen?

Is it the top team in the first 16 ranked countries that get an automatic spot in the group phase?

Thanks,

If I’m not mistaken the ones starting in the qualifying phase are picked starting from the last qualified in the worst ranked country, then the last qualified in the second worst ranked country and so on until we get enough teams.
