Eight of the Bundesliga's 18 clubs will be playing European football next season, after Eintracht Frankfurt won the 2021/22 Europa League.
European qualification explained...
UEFA Champions League
Germany has had four automatic group-stage berths in the Champions League since 2018/19, meaning that the teams that finish in the top four earn the right to compete.
Although 11th in the final league standings, Frankfurt's Europa League triumph means the Bundesliga will have five teams in the Champions League groups for the first time.
UEFA Europa League/ UEFA Europa Conference League
Ordinarily, the team in fifth and the team that wins the DFB Cup qualify directly for the UEFA Europa League group stage, with sixth going into the Europa Conference League play-offs.
However, as Leipzig and Freiburg were this season's DFB Cup finalists and already assured of top-six finishes, the team that finished sixth receives the second Europa League group berth. Seventh gets a shot at the Europa Conference League play-offs.
