What needs to happen for us to finish the season in the top two of our group? First, we have to win against the Czechs, We are counting on positive results in the matches between the Czech Republic and Moldova.
The best scenario is for Moldova to lose to Albania and win against the Czech Republic. However, let’s agree that these are just wishes. There are still two rounds left to play (table below), but we will most likely play in the playoffs. Who can we find?
- Poland – Czech Republic (20.45)
- Moldova – Albania (20.45)
- Albania – Faroe Islands (20.45)
- Czech Republic – Moldova (20.45)

The Poles can wait until the qualifiers. Here are the potential contenders in the fight for Euro 2024
The best scenario for us is that all the teams ahead of Poland in the Nations League qualify directly for Euro 2024. Then we will play the semi-final at home against Estonia.
This meant that in Monday’s match we had to rely on the Dutch to beat the Greeks, which would increase the chances of them not having to compete in the qualifiers. It wasn’t certain until the end, as the Oranje missed one penalty, but Virgil van Dijk converted another in stoppage time!
Now the Netherlands simply need to score three points in their matches against Ireland and Gibraltar to qualify for the European Championship, regardless of the outcome of the match between Greece and France.
What exactly does the playoffs look like now? Four teams from each visual league enter the playoffs. Let’s start with League A, where the Poles are present. At this stage, only three teams have qualified, but the Dutch’s win means their chances are now very high (they still have games against Gibraltar and Ireland).
If only two teams from League A participate in the playoffs, they will face the best team from League D and one team from Group B.
A Netherlands win means Croatia could be the best team in the A-League, uncertain of promotion and could play Estonia in the qualifiers. Then Poland will be the second best team and play at home against a team from the second league – Finland, Ukraine or Iceland.The opponent will be chosen by lottery.
However, Croatia can still advance. However, they have the same number of points as Wales, are in a lower position and everything depends on the results of Wales’ matches with Armenia and Turkey. In this case, we will play in the semi-final against Estonia. And in the final against the winner of the competition between Wales, Finland, Ukraine or Iceland.
