European Scenarios (5th May)

Europa League

The teams finishing in 2nd and 3rd in the Scottish Premiership will qualify for the Europa League, along with the Scottish Cup winners.  If Inverness beat Falkirk in the Scottish Cup final and have also qualify for Europe via the league, then the team finishing in 4th in the Scottish Premiership will also qualify for Europe.  Aberdeen will finish 2nd are already guaranteed a place in at least the Europa League.

It is currently possible that any of Inverness, Dundee Utd or St Johnstone could finish in 3rd place, securing a guaranteed European spot.  3rd place cannot be decided on Tuesday night.  Dundee are currently able to finish 4th, which would be a European spot if Inverness win the Scottish Cup.

Dundee will be out of contention for 4th place (and a chance of a Europa League place) if:

  • Dundee Utd avoid defeat against Inverness.
