WHAT ABOUT THE PLAY-OFFS?

Remember the UEFA Nations League? Well, the winners of all those groups were guaranteed a play-off to make Euro 2020... but, of course, loads of them have already qualified, creating the absurd scenario where almost every good/mediocre team has another shot of qualifying via drop-down places.

There are four paths in the play-offs - with 'Path A' reserved for the strongest teams (although most have already qualified), through to 'Path D' offering a carrot for the lowest-ranked nations.

Rather than explain it in excruciating detail, here's a screenshot from Wikipedia detailing the current (and provisional) state of play:

Despite qualification concluding on Tuesday night, UEFA having some power to fiddle with the paths to give host teams a fairer chance of qualifying for Euro 2020.

We're expecting the final draw and pots to be confirmed by the UEFA Emergency Panel on Thursday.

WHEN ARE THE PLAY-OFFS - AND HOW DO THEY WORK?

  • Semi-final: March 26, 2020
  • Final: March 31, 2020

The play-offs are NOT two-legged affairs. Instead, the best-ranked teams earn home advantage in the semi-finals. A draw on November 22 will determine which semi-final winners will play at home in the final.

WHEN IS THE ACTUAL DRAW FOR EURO 2020?

It's on November 30! It means that four nations will be unknown until deep into 2020 when the play-offs have concluded.

AND REMIND ME... WHEN IS IT AGAIN?

The country-hopping extravaganza begins on June 12, 2020 and runs until July 12, 2020.
