It has become customary in recent years that the third-placed of the group stage of the Champions are repescados to play the Europa League. A measure adopted 1999 and allowing a second chance to those who died in the continental showpiece. This course, Naples, Porto, Juventus, Ajax are some of the joint benefit from this measure will directly qualify for the knockout phase of the Europa League.

At first sight, the idea was hatched at the end of the last century in order to revalue the competition and give it more prestige rivals draft. But nevertheless, seen from another point of view, we may be talking about a misrepresentation of the Europa League.
Why? Well, for several reasons. The first is a classification given to the round of 32 best about this season clubs whose merits have been compromised. The second, because the chance to win a major tournament for smaller teams lost, or is qualified significantly.
Having seen the background, in 2013 (Chelsea), in 2011 (Porto) O 2009 (Shakhtar Donest) Champion of Champions wine, it is included, the course passed the final of the Europa League was contested between teams that had played the Champions.
