Note: UEFA Cup Winners' Cup spot (in yellow) being non-related with a position in La Liga, does not appear until the winner is assured to not win La Liga, thus if wins La Liga has a spot in the UEFA Champions League, then 1995–96 Copa del Rey runners-up earns a spot in the 1996–97 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup. Atlético Madrid won his 9th La Liga title in the last matchday, so after matchday 42 Barcelona's places are coloured in yellow. In light yellow the spot expected for 1996–97 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup.
