The team that will soon become Belgian champion has not been directly qualified for the group stage of the Champions League this season, where the big money can be earned. Antwerp, Genk or Union will have to play a play-off round on August 22 and 23 and August 29 and 30 in which they will be drawn against four possible opponents as non-seeds.

One of those possible opponents has already been determined: Young Boys Bern, the champion of Switzerland. The other three possible opponents of the Belgian champion will only be known in the weeks before because they first have to fight out preliminary rounds among themselves. The Croatian Dinamo Zagreb, the Danish FC Copenhagen and the Galatasaray of 109-time Red Devil Dries Mertens seem to be the main contenders to make it to the play-off round with Antwerp, Genk or Union.
