Montenegro – Romania 0-1 | The miraculous scenario through which tricolors can reach Euro 2020 in the League of Nations


  • League 1, Round 16: Dinamo – Gaz Metan (Friday, 20:30, Digi Sport 1) and Concordia – CFR Cluj (Saturday, 6:30 pm, Digi Sport 1)

  • La Liga, Stage 13, Saturday, Digi Sport 1: Eibar – Real Madrid (14:00) and Atletico Madrid – Barcelona (9:45 p.m.)

Montenegro – Romania 0-1. Romania has imposed itself on Montenegro with 1-0, but missed the two main goals: winning Group 4 of the C League of the League of Nations and joining the third ballot box for the European Championship draw.

However, second place is important for the team led by Cosmin Contra, who retains the theoretical chances to reach the EU 2020 even from the League of Nations. Apart from the 20 teams that will go to the Euro in the preliminaries, the 4 winners of the League of Nations playoffs will also go.

Thus, the four places 1 of the series of Romania, Scotland, Norway, Serbia and Finland are at the moment in the play-off that will be played in March 2020, whose winner will reach the Euro.

Group C Series 4 Series

What the League of Nations says

Until the playoff of the League of Nations, the preliminaries for Euro 2020 (March – November 2019) will be played. If one of the four teams mentioned above qualifies for Euros in the preliminaries, then the best second place in the C series will take their place in the League of Nations playoffs.

Romania's problem is that it is the worst second in its series, being overtaken by Bulgaria, Israel and Hungary (the latter two had a better goal). Thus, in order for tricolors to play in the play-off, Scotland, Norway, Serbia and Finland must qualify for Euros in the preliminaries.

Ranking of Seats 2 of Series C (points scored last rank)

The League of Nations regulation also specifies that if a team does not have four teams that are not already qualified through the preliminaries, the best-ranked selection in the lower series will fill the remaining seats. This will be an extra chance for Romania.

December 2, 2018 is the day of the draw for the composition of the groups in the European Championship preliminaries in 2020. The ceremony will take place in Dublin, at 13:00 (Romania time).
