Euro 2024 FAQ

Euro 2024 groups FAQ

At this point, it's worth noting that the four best third-placed teams join the 12 winners/runners-up in the Round of 16. With only three matchdays, tiebreakers can often be a focal point. In order of priority, third-placed teams on the same points are classified based on the following:

  1. Goal difference
  2. Goals scored
  3. Wins
  4. Lower disciplinary points total
  5. European qualifiers overall ranking
  6. Drawing of lots (if involving Germany)

Which is the most difficult Euro 2024 group?

We’ve highlighted Group B as the most difficult Euro 2024 group on paper, as it contains a Spain side that won successive Euros in 2008 and 2012, reigning holders Italy and a Croatia side that has finished in the top three in the last two World Cups. At least one of those will finish in the group’s bottom two, dicing with potential elimination.

Group D is tough, too, with France finishing second only via penalties at the 2022 World Cup, while the other three sides are all currently ranked inside FIFA’s top 30.

How many points are needed to progress via third place?

Teams generally need four points to pretty much guarantee progress via third spot, assuming superior tiebreaker ground. Three points might do it, though, and it’s not unheard of even for a team to progress as runners-up with three draws in the group stage!

Is winning a Euro group an important part of winning the trophy?

The Round of 16 is organised so that group winners initially avoid each other, which certainly helps. Form often counts for a lot, and the confidence that comes from finishing as group winners is only ever a boost, especially if the pre-tournament odds were long.

Italy are a prime example there, progressing from their Euro 2020 group with nine points. But winning the group certainly wasn’t of importance in the edition before that, when Portugal snuck through their group in third place but went on to go all the way in 2016.

After all, major tournaments are awash with cup-winning sides that were slow burners. Just ask the England squad of 1966, who only drew 0-0 with Uruguay in their opener before forging their path to ultimate glory!
