Both Newcastle and Liverpool have one game in hand, meaning Newcastle will secure at least a fourth-place finish regardless of their final match. It’s their first Champions League appearance in 21 years. Newcastle’s last Champions League appearance was in the 2002-03 season.
In the winter of 2021, Newcastle was in the relegation zone in 19th place. Newcastle was then bought by the Saudi Arabian sovereign wealth fund, and Eddie Howe was hired to bolster the team with quality signings at the right time, eventually realizing the dream of reaching the Champions League.
Despite their wealth, Newcastle have yet to really spend big. Now that they’ve qualified for the Champions League, it’s likely that they’ll be adding quite a few players this summer. It will be interesting to see how Newcastle fare in the Champions League.
