Next week will mark one month since Liverpool clinched their sixth Champions League title after beating Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in Madrid thanks to goals from Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi.

The Reds conquered all of Europe last season but when it came to UEFA’s coefficient rankings, glory didn’t swing their way.

That’s because Jurgen Klopp’s side find themselves third in the standings following the 2018-19 season with 29 points to their name.

And despite beating them 4-3 on aggregate during their route to Madrid, Barcelona are the ones who find themselves at the peak of the standings.

Barca topped their group before going on to beat Lyon and Manchester United respectively before hitting rocks at Anfield.

The coefficient rankings, which determine a club’s seeding in draws and revenue distribution based on results, saw Europa League winners Chelsea clinch second place, level on points with Barca.

They formed the top three whilst Ajax secured fourth spot ahead of Arsenal in fifth who accumulated the same points as Tottenham in sixth.
