As always, this moronic coefficient system depends on the Europa League performance first and foremost. More points to be had there and teams from the big leagues have easier opponents there.

So just as Germany got 3rd primarily by doing well in EL, Ligue 1 can also easily end up racking the points there.

It's a broken system and has no real correlation to the relative strengths of a league.
