Dykes "50-50" for the Denmark game....turns out he was injured as well as suspended for Moldova.

Nisbet might play against the Danes I think.

I think the bigger picture is whether we get a home draw for the second game.

I think I’d rather be unseeded, but with a home second game rather than seeded but with an away second game.

  • The semi-final winners that will host play-off finals A, B and C will be decided by a draw.
    I think that’s what it means
Is it not 1. Seeded gives a home semi-final .
2 six finalists in an all-in draw , so could be at home again ?

You could be unseeded, but have the prospect of a home tie if you get through?

best option obviously would be seeded AND drawn at home in semi
Definitely want to be seeded and thus avoid playing the likes of Portugal, Sweden or Russia away in the semi final stage.

I’m confused 🤔 i thought it was 3 groups of 4 and the winners go through? Sure I’ve actually said this already which makes me even more confused 🥴

12 playoffs team with the seeds at home in a one-off tie , which gives 6 teams through to an all - in semifinal draw then one-off game semis to give 3 qualifiers , I think

This is how I understand it:

as it stands

The qualified seeded teams are:

1. Portugal
2. Russia
3. Switzerland
4. Sweden
5. Poland
6. Wales

The qualified unseeded teams are:

7. Scotland
8. North Macedonia
9. Turkey
10. Finland
11.Austria
12. Czech Republic

There are 3 places available, so there are three paths.

Group A could get drawn as:
Wales (Seed) v Scotland
Portugal (Seed) v Czech Republic

With the winner of Wales v Scotland being drawn at home in the "final" game.

EG

Wales 0 Scotland 1
Portugal 1 Czech Republic 0

Scotland 1 Portugal 0 - Scotland Qualify

Group B could get drawn as:
Poland (Seed) v North Macedonia
Sweden (Seed) v Turkey

With the winner of Sweden v Turky being drawn at home in the "final game.

Poland 1 North Macedonia 0
Sweden 1 Turkey 0

Sweden 1 Poland 0 - Sweden Qualify

Group C could get drawn as:
Switzerland (Seed) v Austria
Russia (Seed) v Finland

With the winners of Russia v Finland getting drawn at home

Switzerland 0 Austria 1
Russia 0 Finland 1

Finland 0 Austria 1 - Austria Qualify

The only thing I don't understand is how we don't play Israel again.
