From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Group B of UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying is one of the ten groups to decide which teams will qualify for the UEFA Euro 2020 finals tournament.[1] Group B consists of five teams: Lithuania, Luxembourg, Portugal (the title holders), Serbia and Ukraine,[2] where they will play against each other home-and-away in a round-robin format.[3]

The top two teams will qualify directly for the finals. Unlike previous editions, the participants of the play-offs will not be decided based on results from the qualifying group stage, but instead based on their performance in the 2018–19 UEFA Nations League.

Ukraine qualified for the finals as group winners.
