UEFA Ranking: Sporting can finish ahead of Benfica

The Sporting might finish the 2007/08 season ahead of Benfica and immediately behind FC Porto in the UEFA ranking of clubs.

For that to happen, the Sporting necessarily need to win all the games that it strives in the UEFA Cup, including the final.

At this point, the F.C. Porto is the best Portuguese team ranked in this ranking that collects the points of the last five seasons. The F.C. Porto have 81,129 points and occupy the 17 th position. The Benfica is 18, with 77,129. The Sporting surge in 23, with 66,129. Max can add 12 points to this value (five wins, two more points of bonus). Among the Portuguese clubs are Werder Bremen, AZ Alkmaar, Schalke 04 and Juventus.

This ranking of clubs is essential because determines the position in the draws for the Champions League and UEFA Cup, in the 2008/09 season.

At this time it is too early to determine where the teams are Portugal (because it is not known what will be), but if FC Porto, Benfica and Sporting is almost certain that none will be in the pot 1, all are strong candidates to pot 2 of the Champions League.
