Which teams could Manchester United face in the Champions League qualifiers?

Champions League

Manchester United have secured a top-four finish in the Premier League, but a draw with Arsenal means Champions League qualification remains uncertain.

While the Premier League's top three go straight into the group stages of the Champions League, fourth place enters a play-off for the right to move on in the prestigious competition.

It currently looks as though Arsenal, two points ahead of Manchester United with as many games remaining, will clinch that third spot and therefore receive automatic qualification. The Red Devils only have Hull City left to play, meaning a total of three points is the maximum they can pick up before the 2014/15 season comes to a close.

Following the 1-1 draw with Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday, United fans posed questions regarding who they could face in August’s Champions League play-off round.

The draw is split into a Champions Route (league champions in countries that do not receive automatic qualification) and League Route (non-champions i.e. Manchester United).

Many of Europe's domestic divisions are still running, but the selection of United's potential opponents is beginning to look at lot clearer.

Potential opposition Manchester United could face in a Champions League play-off

CSKA Moscow, Lazio, Roma, Anderlecht, Club Brugge, Fenerbahce, Panathinaikos, PAOK, Rapid Wien, Sparta Prague.

Louis van Gaal's side should avoid Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen, Ukrainian outfit Shakhtar Donetsk, Eredivisie giants Ajax or any Spanish club involved in the draw due to UEFA ranking/seedings.
