At this stage, 32 teams are divided into eight groups. The group winners, as well as the top six runners-up teams, will advance directly to the finals, which will take place in the Netherlands from January 19 to February 6, 2022. The owner of one more ticket to the Euro will be determined by the results of the playoffs, in which the remaining two teams will play, which took 2nd place in the groups.
