Did not support the winning initiative: “Zenith” has lost the Anderlecht game in the Europa League match

Total coefficient of Russia is now 49,532, now occupying the seventh position Portugal has been held 49,332 points. In fifth place is France – 53,665 points.

The return matches of the Russian clubs will be held next week. On Wednesday “Zenit” will play in Istanbul on Thursday – “Rostov” in Prague and “Zenith” will play Anderlecht.

If Russia will end the season-2016/17 in the sixth or fifth place in the UEFA coefficients table, in the European Cup-2018/19 would be represented by six clubs (three in the Champions League and three in the Europa League) and not five, as now. On a place higher than the fifth count is not necessary.
