Who plays the Red Devils in the eighth finals?  Smaller chance of being first in Group Six

Who plays the Red Devils in the eighth finals? Smaller chance of being first in Group Six

Portugal, Germany or even France. They remain potential rivals to the Red Devils in the eighth finals. It must be said: After Switzerland’s 3-1 victory over Turkey, the chance of the Belgians beating a feared Group F advanced country has once again diminished. The Swiss now have four points, which should be enough to finish in the top four – it remains to be seen. And if Switzerland is actually one of the top two thirds, the chance is 1 in 10 that the Belgians will extract a country from a group F.

How to calculate who the Red Devils should play against seems complicated, but it all depends on who the best thirds are. In the event of a tie, they are also ranked according to the goal difference and the number of goals scored.

For example, if the best two-thirds come from groups A, B, C and D, Belgium will play against the two-thirds of group A (full table can be found below). All this, of course, provided that the Devils win their group – a tie with Finland will be enough.

Hypothetical against Switzerland in the final 1/8

At the moment (after the finals in Group A), the best third-placed teams come from Groups A (Switzerland), B (Finland), C (Austria) and F (Portugal). This means that the Devils will actually face Switzerland in the eighth final.

It’s improbable but not impossible: what if the Red Devils were still second in their group? Then all the best third-party scenarios can go to the trash and play against the second-placed Group A: Wales on June 26 in Amsterdam. If the Devils and the Dutch survived the eighth final, they would meet in the quarter-finals.
