    There going to be four groups of four teams in the play offs.

    In each group there will be two one-legged semi finals followed by one-legged final between the semi final winners (so you need to win two games to qualify)

    The groups are structured based on the Nations League and means there will be a group of four teams where one will definitely qualify from Georgia, North Macedonia, Kosovo or Belarus.

    It looks like the higher placed team will play the semi final leg at home. The final venue will be decided by a draw.

    All the teams will be known by tomorrow night.

    The draw for the full set of fixtures for all semi finals will be made on Friday and the venue for each final will be drawn as well.

    One other thing already known is that Scotland have a home semi final play off in the group they are in. Norway entertain Serbia in that group.

    Yep- potentially 4 days to organise an entire away trip or sell 73,500 tickets. Nightmare either way.

    Lets hope we win tomorrow then the FAW can fill the coffers with a meaningless friendly at the millenium stadium v argentina or brazil or something.

    So if we don't win?

    It's home to Slovakia if Hungary qualify or home to Ireland if Slovakia qualify.

    Bosnia v Ireland or N.Ireland in the other semi

    hopefully get the result tomorrow to avoid this play off malarky then. Ridiculous that the winners of all the semi finals have to organise the final within 4 days.

    So likely to be at home to Slovakia (unless tomorrow’s game ends in a draw)which would be a good outcome. We then need a bit of luck to get a home draw for the finals should we get through.

    Agreed. Why on earth are ply offs being held back until March?

    If we don't win tomorrow I think we should get Neil Harris to manage the play offs. Going on the pressers alone he pisses all over Giggs.

    I swear it's better to be relegated in the Nations League so then we can qualify against the likes of Georgia, North Macedonia, Kosovo or Belarus next time.

    For the euros, but I'm assuming our ranking will take a hit and as such the world cup qualifying groups would be brutal.
