As the end of the season nears, we look at our teams and where they stand in the race for European spots. For many teams it's a huge question. Teams like Tottenham are banking on a European enterance. I cannot imagine Gareth Bale staying out of Europe for another year.

Some of the "In" teams are speculative with 5-6 games left some of those teams can possibly drop out, but it's very unlikely.
For the group round of 32 there is a draw, creating 8 groups of 4. As we saw this year one group had the champions from Spain, Germany, Holland, and England all in the same group.
