These countries will certainly avoid the Red Devils in the group stage of the European Championship and these are their possible opponents
20 de November, 2023
The Red Devils are the seed during the draw for the European Championship on December 2 thanks to the 5-0 win against Azerbaijan. They thus avoid top countries such as vice world champions France in the group stage. Although Belgium could end up in a group with Denmark, the Netherlands and Switzerland, for example.
Thanks to the group win in group F, the Red Devils are assured of a place in pot 1. With host country Germany, France, Portugal and Spain, the Belgians are joined by four other top countries. England can also secure this pot if they win against North Macedonia on Monday evening. Although Denmark can also end up in pot 1.
The other group winners end up in pot 2. Hungary and Denmark are thus assured of a place in this pot, unless Denmark still jumps to pot 1. For the time being, Turkey, Romania and Albania are also on their way to group victory. After the current leaders of the groups, Austria from the group of Belgium is the best number 2 in this European Championship qualification. The Austrians have collected nineteen points and are therefore also in pot 2.
Pot three contains the other best runners from each group. This certainly includes the Netherlands, Slovakia and Scotland. The winner of the clash between Italy and Ukraine on Monday evening normally also ends up in pot three.
Slovenia, Kazakhstan, Serbia, Croatia and the Czech Republic also have a chance of a place in pot 3.
The three winners of the play-offs will be included in this pot, which will not be known until the end of March. The numbers two in the European Championship qualifying groups with the fewest points also end up in pot 4. This includes Switzerland and the Czech Republic also seems to be on its way to ending up in pot four. Although Moldova can still steal that spot.
