Israel was 27th in the country coefficients that determined access. Israel got only 2.375 in 2019-2020, but it was better than the 1.375 from 2014-2015 that dropped out, and Israel moved up to 23rd. At the start of 2020-2021, 2015-2016 dropped out, and countries with clubs that start in the Champions League Group Stage get points from that. In the last four seasons and this season where no countries near Israel have points, Israel ranks 22nd. There are 55 countries in UEFA. Now I'll move on to the draws and schedule: Champions League: Champions League Qualifying Rounds 1, 2, and 3 will have one game with the site being determined by the draw, so the seeded clubs don't host every game. The Playoff Round will have two legs. Qualifying Round 1 will be on Tuesday 18 August and Wednesday 19 August. Last year started over a month earlier, with first legs on 9 and 10 July and second legs on 16 and 17 July. Having three rounds have only one game makes the time catch up. Qualifying Round 1 has 34 champions. The seeded clubs had coefficients of Celtic of Scotland's 34.000 to Dinamo Tbilisi of Georgia's 4.750. The unseeded clubs had coefficients CS Fola Easch of Luxembourg's 4.750 to Floriana of Malta's 1.150. FK Sarajevo of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Dinamo Tbilisi, and CS Fola Esch have the same coefficient. I'm guessing that CS Fola Esch was unseeded because Luxembourg has a worse country coefficient than the other two, but that may not be why. Maccabi Tel Aviv has a 16.500 that ranks seventh of the 34 clubs. After determining the seeded and unseeded clubs, the clubs were made into five groups for the draw, with Groups 1 through 3 having six clubs, and Groups 4 and 5 having eight clubs. Maccabi Tel Aviv was in Group 4, and their unseeded opponents could have been Dynamo Brest of Belarus that has 3.775, Riga FC of Latvia that has 3.500, KF Tirana of Albania that has 1.475, and Sileks Kratovo of North Macedonia that has 1.475. Maccabi Tel Aviv will host Riga on Wednesday 19 August at 8:00 P.M. local, which is 1:00 P.M. USA Eastern. The draw for Qualifying Round 2 was done using the seeded clubs' coefficients from Qualifying Round 1. It will have 20 clubs. Celtic's 34.000 led again, and Molde FK of Norway's 15.000 is the worst by a seeded club. Maccabi Tel Aviv is the second worst seeded club. The unseeded clubs range from FC Midtjylland of Denmark's 14.500 to Dinamo Tbilisi's 4.750. Unseeded clubs who win in Qualifying Round 1 can have worse coefficients than their Qualifying Round 2 opponents if they beat a club that would have been seeded in Qualifying Round 2. The clubs were again made into groups for the draw, with six clubs each in Groups 1 and 2, and eight clubs in Group 3. Maccabi Tel Aviv was drawn in Group 2, and their Qualifying Round 2 opponents before the draw could have been the winner of Ararat-Armenia (2.500) of Armenia hosting Omonia Nicosia (5.350) of Cyprus, the winner of Flora Tallinn (4.000) of Estonia hosting Suduva Marijampole (6.750) of Lithuania, or NK Celje (2.600) of Slovenia hosting Dundalk (8.500) of Ireland. If they advance, Maccabi Tel Aviv will go to Flora Tallinn or Suduva Marijampole on 25 or 26 August. The draw for Qualifying Round 3 will be on Monday 31 August, with the games on 15 and 16 September. Israel will have three clubs in the Europa League: Qualifying Round 1 will have 94 clubs. The clubs were put in fifteen groups, with Groups 1 through 13 having six clubs, and Groups 14 and 15 having eight clubs. Hapoel Be'er Sheva, Maccabi Haifa, and Beitar Jerusalem were seeded. The Europa League will have a Preliminary Round with two games on Tuesday 18 August and six games on Thursday 20 August. These 16 clubs come from countries ranked from 48th through 55th. The Europa League will have one game in each qualifying round and the Playoff Round. Europa League Qualifying Round 1 will be on 27 August. Hapoel Be'er Sheva (14.000) will host Dinamo Batumi (1.150) of Georgia. Dinamo Batumi has tied for the third worst coefficient of the 94 clubs if the bottom four unseeded clubs in the Preliminary Round lose in that round. Maccabi Haifa (3.925) will host Zeljeznicar Sarajevo (3.000) of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Beitar Jerusalem (3.925) will go to Teuta Durres (1.475) of Albania. Two of the three clubs are at home, and I'd be disappointed if any of them lose. The draw for Qualifying Round 2 will be on Monday 31 August at the same time as the draw for Champions League Qualifying Round 3. The draw for Europa League Qualifying Round 3 will be the next day on 1 September.
