Euro Cup Round of 16 – PLAYOFF SHOOTOUT

The playoffs offer the last chance for unsuccessful teams, but it’s a complex process. 16 teams who didn’t qualify spontaneously will be ranked according to their divisions from the 2018 Nations League and put into 4 single-elimination sets.

At the bottom end, there’s the League D playoff, which is guaranteed to hand one team its debut at a major championship of Euro 2020. Georgia and Belarus have held a place in that small playoff and will be expected to be joined by Kosovo and North Macedonia.

The highest division almost certainly won’t have enough unqualified teams to make a 4 team bracket, so we will recruit extras from lower tiers. That could hand League A’s Iceland a fortunate draw with League C teams such as Bulgaria and Israel.
