Following the conclusion of the Champions League Group Stage, UEFA has updated the rankings of clubs, which has seen AC Milan rise above a fellow Italian club.
The UEFA Club Ranking takes into account the results of each club in UEFA Club Competitions and is used to determine a club’s seeding in club competition draws (5-year ranking), as well as a club’s revenue share (10-year ranking). The coefficients are updated directly after each completed round of matches. You can find more info on how the coefficients work here.
The current top five is comprised of leaders Manchester City, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.
MilanNews writes that after beating Newcastle United on Wednesday evening, the Rossoneri have risen to 31st in the table, leapfrogging fellow Italian side Lazio, and whilst they remain in Europe, albeit in the Europa League, they can continue to earn coefficient points to try and climb the table.
In terms of where Milan ranks amongst their fellow Italian sides, Inter currently leads the running, sitting in seventh – after that is Roma, who are 10th, then Juventus 15th, Napoli 16th, Atalanta 24th, Milan 31st, Lazio 32nd and finally Fiorentina, who are 61st.
