The hardest and easiest Euro 2020 qualifying groups Wales can now get
www.walesonline.co.uk

The seedings for the Euro 2020 qualifying draw have been completed following the conclusion of the group stages of the inaugural edition of the Nations League.

Wales finished second in Group 4 of League B as a result of their 2-1 defeat to Denmark at Cardiff City Stadium on Friday night.

But their 1-0 triumph over Republic of Ireland at Dublin's Aviva Stadium last month guaranteed that they would be in pot 2 for the Euro 2020 qualifying draw, which takes place in Dublin on December 2.

And after the final round of Nations League group matches were completed on Tuesday night, all 55 European sides have been allocated a pot for the upcoming Euro draw.

Wales are joined in pot 2 by Austria, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Iceland, Russia, Sweden and Ukraine meaning Ryan Giggs' men cannot play any of those teams in their Euro qualifying campaign.

It also means they will be drawn alongside one nation from each of the other pots (depending if they're in a group of five or six).

So the best and worst case scenarios for Wales - based on rankings and recent form - look to be as follows:

There will be 10 groups in total when it comes to the Euro qualifiers, five of which will consist of five teams while the other five will have six sides.

As for the seedings, the Nations League pot is for pot 1 sides who have qualified for the last four of UEFA's new competition, with the finals taking place in June 2019.

As England, Portugal, Netherlands and Switzerland will be battling for glory in the Nations League on one of the five allocated Euro qualifying breaks, those four teams will be drawn into the groups that contain only five teams rather than six.

The top two sides in each of the 10 groups will automatically qualify for Euro 2020, with the remaining four spots being given to those who win the Nations League play-offs.

Matches will take place across five international breaks during 2019, the first two of which come between March 21 and 26 later this season.

The rest will be held between June 7-11, September 5-10, October 10-15 and November 14-19.
