Juventus Court Ruling Sends Arsenal’s Champions League Aspirations Alive

Arsenal have been handed a major Champions League boost for next season following news of Juventus’ point deduction being reinstalled.

The Old Lady saw a 10-point deduction that was sanctioned earlier this year overturned but now the Old Lady’s 2022/23 season tally will go back down by ten points after a recent court ruling.

That decision looks set to have a huge impact on Arsenal and the Champions League pot they will be drawn in. Prior to the deduction, Juventus sat second in the Serie A table on 69 points with three games left to play, however 10 points being taken away would see them drop down to seventh, five points off fourth-placed AC Milan.

If the top four was therefore to remain the same, the Gunners would be placed in Pot 2 for the Champions League group stage draw, which would likely hand them a favourable selection of teams they will face.

As per UEFA.com, how the Champions League draw is conducted is as follows: ‘The teams will be split into four seeding pots.

Pot 1 will consist of the holders, the UEFA Europa League winners and the champions of the six highest-ranked nations who did not qualify via one of the 2022/23 continental titles; Pots 2 to 4 will be determined by the club coefficient rankings.’

Sevilla and AS Roma could still influence Arsenal’s move from Pot 3 to Pot 2 if they accomplish a qualification spot through their league finish.
