UEFA COEFFICIENT TABLE

With two Premier League clubs in both the Champions League and Europa League semifinals – the English top team has officially outperformed LaLiga in three of the past five seasons.
Despite both Real Madrid and Villarreal still in the Champions League and Europa League respectively, Spain cannot overtake England.
Even the glory of the Champions League and Europa League will leave Spain and LaLiga in England’s shadow.
That’s because the gap between the two countries will widen if the rankings shift one season.
As it stands, Spain currently has a coefficient score of 97,425. While England’s score has eclipsed that of their 2018/19 record and could even beat Spain’s all-time highest coefficient score in 2015-2016.
Spain set such a record when Real Madrid beat Atletico Madrid in the Champions League and Sevilla beat Liverpool in the Europa League.
England’s rise to the top of the UEFA rankings does not affect the number of Champions League places of both countries.
As a result, after nine years, the dominance of Barcelona and Real Madrid has come to an end
