Who will go to the Final Four?
Defending champions Team France are already out of the running in Group 1, while Austria appear to be a long way off. From then on, Denmark (1st, 9 points) and Croatia (2nd, 7 points) will meet for their first participation in the Final Four of the tournament. The Danes are ahead in the table, but the Croats won the first leg 1-0. Tomorrow the two teams meet in Zagreb. Denmark can already qualify if they win and Vatreni can overtake his opponent if he is successful. If Christian Eriksen’s side don’t win, the two teams will battle it out on the final matchday. In Group 2, Spain (1st, 8 points) and Portugal (2nd, 7 points) have an advantage and will meet on September 27. However, a Spanish victory combined with a Portuguese defeat the following day could allow La Roja to qualify for the Final Four as in the previous edition.
Group 3 offers a three-way battle between Hungary (1st, 7 points), Germany (2nd, 6 points) and Italy (3rd, 5 points). Dominik Szoboszlai’s teammates will play against Germany on September 23 and Italy on September 26, and will be able to experience a totally historic Nations League Final Four. Same story for Germany, who will challenge England on September 26 after their match against the Magyars. Finally, the Nazionale will start against England on September 23 to give themselves the luxury of dreaming on September 26 against Hungary. The fight promises to be terrible between these three formations. As for Group 4, the Netherlands (1st, 10 points) and Belgium (2nd, 7 points) are fighting for access. Victorious 4-1 in the first leg, the Oranjes have a nice cushion for the clash between the two teams on September 25. Tomorrow, the Dutch will challenge Poland while Belgium will play Wales with the obligation to win to maintain any real hope of qualifying.
Who will be relegated from League A?
From heroes to nil, such may be France’s fate in Group 1. The 2018 world champions are two points behind Austria and may be relegated tomorrow in the event of a loss to Ralf Rangnick’s side. A win would get out of this delicate position while a draw would keep Hope alive. France and Austria will challenge Denmark and Croatia respectively on Sunday. In group 2, Spain remains and Portugal has a nice cushion. The Czech Republic (3rd, 4 points) and Switzerland (4th, 3 points) will fight to stay in the top flight. Patrik Schick’s teammates can, in the event of a win against Portugal and a loss to Switzerland, offer each other a reprieve from 24 September. In case of a different scenario, the two teams meet on Swiss soil on September 27.
The situation is critical for England in group D. Finally, the English who will challenge Italy on September 23 and Germany on September 26 will have to fill up on points to stay. Hungary is 5 points ahead, Germany is 4 points ahead and Italy is 3 points ahead, so clearly you will have to make a full card or risk relegation to League B. In group 4, Poland has a good advantage in terms of maintenance with 3 points. ahead of Wales two days from the end and with a 2-1 victory in the first leg. Any positive result during the confrontation of the two teams would be synonymous with classification. The following day, the two teams will battle it out from afar as Poland host the Netherlands and Wales travel to Belgium.
In the lead up to League A, the clash between Ukraine (1st, 7 points) and Scotland (2nd, 6 points) on Tartan Army land tonight will help clear things up. Both teams are playing for a place in League A and this matchup could allow Zbirna to take off, or the Scots to take first place. Maintenance, on the other hand, should affect Ireland (3rd, 4 points) and Armenia (4th, 3 points). If the islanders have a one-point lead, Armenia won the first leg 1-0 and has the advantage in head-to-head matches. The two teams will meet on Tuesday, September 27, at the same time as the second leg between Ukraine and Scotland. Following the exclusion of Russia, which will be de facto relegated to League C, Group 2 sees Israel (first, 5 points) on top ahead of Iceland (second, 3 points) and Albania (third, 1 point). who has one less game. Israel can be promoted this Saturday, September 24, in the event of a win or draw against Albania. However, if the latter wins, it would reset everything entirely for Armando Broja’s teammates who host Iceland on September 27.
In Group 3, the fight will be tough although Bosnia and Herzegovina (1st, 8 points) and Montenegro (2nd, 7 points) are in a strong position against Finland (3rd, 4 points) and Romania (4th, 3 points). the next day they will face Finland and Romania on Friday while Bosnia and Herzegovina will host Montenegro.Two games that will allow us to refine positions.Finally in group 4, Erling Braut Haaland’s Norway is in a strong position and has an advantage of three points over Serbia, whom they beat 1-0 in the first leg. The two teams will battle it out from a distance the next day before facing off on September 27 at A Clash at the Top. Maintenance will be decided by Sweden and Slovenia, which I also meet on September 27. Advantage for Blågult who have a 1 point lead and won the first leg 2-0.
To access League B, we already distinguish certain formations that have taken a good advantage. In Group 1, Turkey is 5 points ahead of Luxembourg and will only need a draw against the Duchy to be promoted to the first division. As for the fight for permanence, Lithuania is four points behind the Faroe Islands with the disadvantage of direct confrontations. The Lithuanians should find themselves in the teams that will play the play-offs in order not to go down to League D. In group 2, Greece is already promoted, but there will be a fight to keep the distance. In second place, Kosovo is 4 points ahead of Northern Ireland and Cyprus and looks safe. On the other hand, these last two will offer each other a distance combat. Advantage for the Northern Irish in direct confrontations.
In Group 3, Kazakhstan is 4 points clear of Slovakia, whom they have beaten twice. The Snow Leopards need a win to be promoted to League B. As for maintenance, there will be a fight between Azerbaijan and Belarus who will fight from a distance. The Azerbaijanis have the advantage of direct confrontations and a 2-point advantage, so the situation will be complicated for Belarus. As for Group 4, Georgia (1st, 10 points) and North Macedonia (2nd, 7 points) will fight for promotion with a clash on September 23 that could be decisive. The first leg was won 3-0 by Khvicha Kvaratskhelia’s side. In terms of upkeep, Bulgaria has a two-point lead over Gibraltar, which is a tiebreaker. On Friday, the two teams face each other in a match that will surely allow them to know the barrage so as not to go down in League D.
Finally, in the last European division, we begin to know the face of the two teams that will be promoted to League C. In group 1, Latvia is 5 points ahead of Moldova. Receiving this selection tomorrow, the Latvians only need a draw to be promoted. Otherwise, it will be resolved on the final day with a distance combat. In group 2, Estonia and Malta share the lead with 6 points (1 match less for the Estonians). The two teams meet on Friday and Estonia, who won the first match 2-1, need only a draw to secure promotion.
