Manchester United were seen as the favorite to lift the European trophy and end their four-year wait.

However, football always comes with some shocking results as Ole Gunnar men were swept away in a tightly contested penalty shootout after the match was unable to be settled in 90 minutes plus extra time.

This defeat, though, may have given Liverpool a possible Champions League predicament by losing to Villarreal in the Europa League final in Gdansk on Wednesday evening.

Liverpool fans would normally have little reason to be upset at Manchester United being denied silverware.

And it relates to the draw for next season’s Champions League group stages, which will take place in August.

By winning their European final after a lengthy and exciting penalty shootout, Villarreal will go into Pot 1, along with the title winners from the highest-ranked European leagues – Atletico Madrid, Manchester City, Bayern Munich, Inter Milan, Lille, and Sporting Lisbon.

Manchester United, meanwhile, will join Liverpool in Pot 2 for the draw alongside Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, and Sevilla.

And with only one place waiting in Pot 2, there is a possibility Borussia Dortmund – who at present boasts Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho in their ranks – could alternatively be placed in Pot 3 and become potential Liverpool opponents in the group stage.

That will now be conditioned on the result of Saturday’s Champions League final between Manchester City and Chelsea.

Success for City over Chelsea will make the Londoners the final team in Pot 2 and push Dortmund into Pot 3, making it probable that the Bundesliga giant could be drawn with Liverpool in the group stage.

The point that City have already qualified for the competition next season means Zenit St Petersburg will be placed in Pot 1 as the winner of the next highest-ranked league, which is Russia.

But a Chelsea win at the weekend will put them in Pot 1 and see Dortmund become the eighth and final team in Pot 2.
