WHO’S THROUGH, WHO CAN JOIN THEM?

Who is through already, who can join them in the round of 16, qualifying rules, tiebreakers and what each team need to reach the round of 16.

The third set of UEFA EURO 2020 group games began on Sunday as the round of 16 continues to take shape. We explain the permutations, rules and tiebreakers as the knockout stage moves ever closer.

Group runners-up: Wales, Denmark, Austria, Croatia
Best third-placed teams: Switzerland, Czech Republic

Czech Republic are through as one of the four best third-placed teams.

Group E

Wednesday: Slovakia (3) vs Spain (2), Sweden (4, through) vs Poland (1)

Sweden are through and will top the group if they beat Poland. If Sweden lose and the other game is drawn, Sweden, Slovakia and Poland will be split for first to third place on results between the three teams. If Sweden lose they finish third.

Slovakia need a point to be certain of going through and will top the group if they win and Sweden do not.

Spain will go through if they beat Slovakia. They will also go through if they draw and Poland do not beat Sweden.

Poland are through if they win.

If Slovakia, Sweden and Poland all finish on 4 points (ahead of Spain on 3), they will be split on goal difference from matches between the three teams, though all will be through at least as a best third-placed team.

In that scenario, if Poland beat Sweden 1-0, and Slovakia draw, the order will be: 1 Slovakia, 2 Poland, 3 Sweden.

If Poland beat Sweden 2-1, and Slovakia draw, the order will be: 1 Poland, 2 Sweden, 3 Slovakia (Sweden and Slovakia would be behind Poland on goal difference and to split the two their direct result, a Sweden win, would apply).

If Poland beat Sweden by any other one-goal margin, and Slovakia draw, the order will be: 1 Poland, 2 Sweden, 3 Slovakia.

If Poland beat Sweden by two goals or more, and Slovakia draw, the order will be: 1 Poland, 2 Slovakia, 3 Sweden.

Group F

Wednesday: Portugal (3) vs France (4, through), Germany (3) vs Hungary (1)

France are through and will finish first if they win, or if they draw and Germany do not beat Hungary. If France lose and Hungary win, second place will be decided on overall goal difference.

Germany will go through if they avoid defeat. They will finish first if they win and France do not. Germany will finish third if they draw and France lose, or if both Germany and Portugal lose.

Portugal will go through if they avoid defeat. They will finish first if they win and Germany do not. Portugal will finish fourth if they lose and Germany also lose.

Hungary will go through if they win. If they win and France lose, second place will be decided on overall goal difference. Hungary will finish third if they win and the other game is drawn.
