Domestic Competition

The club that finishes at the top of the table after all clubs have played all their matches are crowned La Liga Champions.

A system of promotion and relegation exists between La Liga and LaLiga 2:

  • The bottom three placed La Liga clubs are relegated, and swap places with the top two LaLiga 2 clubs, and the winner of the LaLiga 2 playoff.

European Competition

UEFA coefficients are used to determine the number of clubs that qualify for the three major European Competitions: Champions League, Europa League and the Europa Conference League.

Spain ranks second for the 2021-22 season, granting them four sides in the Champions League, two sides in the Europa League, and one side in the Europa Conference League.

  • Champions League (Group stage)
    • Position 1, 2, 3, 4
  • Europa League (Group stage)
    • Position 5
    • Copa del Rey winner* The Copa del Rey winner, Real Betis, has already qualified for Europe. Therefore, the Europa League spot will go to the 6th position Bundesliga team instead.
  • Europa Conference League
    • Position 6* The 6th position team has taken the Copa del Rey winners spot in Europa League, meaning the Europa Conference League spot is given to the 7th position team instead.
