The 2021/22 campaign is officially in the history books and teams across Europe have sealed their spot in next season’s Champions League.
Manchester United, who are three-time winners of UEFA’s grandest trophy, will not be in it however after only qualifying for the Europa League.
Tottenham ended their three-year absence from the Champions League by edging out north London rivals Arsenal for the last spot.
But who will Spurs be joining and what Pot will they be in? talkSPORT.com has you covered…
Who has qualified for the Champions League next season?
The teams who finished in the top four across the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A and the Bundesliga will all be put in the group stage.
However, Germany will have five representatives this year after Eintracht Frankfurt won the Europa League.
Elsewhere, the top two teams in France and Portugal have already qualified with the third going through the qualifying rounds.
The Ukrainian Premier League’s abandonment due to the Russian invasion meant their top two teams Shakhtar Donetsk and Dynamo Kyiv were sent straight through to the Champions League.
Russia will not have any clubs participating which has opened the door for Celtic to be guaranteed direct entry to the group stage.
Rangers, who missed the chance to qualify by losing the Europa League final, are at least sent into the third qualifying round rather than the usual second.
