Qualification Phase 2[edit]

Twenty-six pre-qualified teams joined the six qualified teams from previous rounds. Those 32 teams were split into eight groups, with the winners and runner-ups qualifying for the final tournament, as well as the four best third-placed teams. The draw for the qualification round was held on 12 April 2018 in Trondheim, Norway.[5][6]

As Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Netherlands and Portugal had the same points in the national team ranking, an extra draw was held just before the actual draw in which the two first teams drawn were placed in pot 2, while the third went into pot 3 Netherlands and Portugal were drawn to be in pot 2. Furthermore, for political reasons, Serbia and Kosovo could not be drawn into the same group.[5]
