Scotland’s coefficient has hit a five-year high after Celtic’s win against Lazio in Rome and Rangers securing all three points against Porto. 

Scottish teams in Europe have now surpassed the coefficient amount achieved in each of the last five seasons following a memorable night for both teams in the Europa League. 

Scotland's coefficient for this season now sits at 7.500, 1.000 points more than the most successful season in 18/19.

As it stands, Scotland would be 14th in the coefficient table next season with two Scottish sides qualifying for the Champions League qualifiers. 

According to Twitter account UEFA Calculator, Scotland has now amassed 25.625 following a memorable night in the UEFA Europa League. 

Olivier Ntcham’s injury-time winner against Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico sent Celtic into the last 32 of the Europa League, while Alfredo Morelos and Steven Davis scored to catapult Rangers into qualification contention. 

And while fans of both clubs, and indeed fans across Scottish football can celebrate, there will be an added coefficient boost if Celtic or Rangers can pick up more wins or draws in Europe.
