Portuguese teams guaranteed the maintenance of the sixth place thanks to the excellent performances of the three Portuguese representatives, all coming second in their groups, FC Porto in the Champions League, qualifying for the final eight, and Benfica and Sporting de Braga in Europa League, qualifying for the final 32.

Portugal will maintain sixth place in the UEFA ranking at the end of the 2020/21 season, regardless of the results of FC Porto, Benfica and Sporting de Braga in the knockout stages of the European football cups.

Therefore, as was already the case for 2021/22, in 2022/23 there will also be two Portuguese teams with direct entry into the Champions League, plus one in the third qualifying round, which means another direct entry in relation to the present time.

In this scenario, the champion and 'vice' of the I League go to the group stage of the 'Champions', the third to the third qualifying round, the winner of the Portuguese Cup heads to the Europa League and the fourth and fifth go to the new race, entering the third and second qualifying rounds, respectively.
