Poland has been eliminated, but what about the rest? Lineups to reach the Euro 2024 playoffs

There is a chance for four teams in Group E to pick up four points at the same time.

Three matches of Euro 2024 were played on Friday, June 21. For the first time in the tournament, a match was recorded without scoring goals (although the annulment of Holland’s goal caused controversy). We study the position in the group tables after the new day.

Group D

The Polish team lost the second match of the European Championship and was eliminated from the tournament. Other teams have a chance of leaving the group with three points, but not the Poles. They will definitely remain in fourth place, because they will not catch up with France and Holland in points. And even if after the third round they are equal with Austria, they will still be behind due to the result of the head-to-head confrontation.

Apparently, in the last round France and the Netherlands will compete in absentia for first place in the group. Since the match between these teams was a draw, if both teams win or draw, the fate of the first line will be determined by the difference in goals scored and lost throughout the group stage (so far, the French and Dutch have equality here) . The next criterion is the number of goals scored. This is the reason why the Netherlands is higher in the table today.

Schedule for the 3rd day of group D

Netherlands – Austria, June 24, 19:00 Moscow time; France – Poland, June 24, 19:00 Moscow time.

Group E

The second round is not over here yet. Belgium will play Romania on Saturday and Ukraine’s victory on Friday significantly complicated the situation in the group. Now all four teams have an equal chance, more or less, of making the playoffs. Belgium is obviously the favorite, but still needs to win the second round to match the rest.

The most likely scenario is that Belgium beats Romania. Then all teams will have three points and all teams will qualify not by the results of the head-to-head matches, but by goal difference. In any case, six points guarantee access for any team to the round of 16. And even four points is also very likely, but there is a nuance. Group E is close to becoming the only one in which four teams will score four points each (with a victory for Belgium and two draws in the last round). Most likely, in this scenario, Ukraine will not leave the group due to the worse goal difference. Belgium is unlikely to beat Romania by more than 5 goals on Friday.
