Who will directly qualify from Group B at Euro 2024: preview

The final part of the 2024 European Football Championship will be held in Germany from June 14 to July 14. The tournament will involve 24 participating teams, which will be divided into six quartets. The top two national teams from each group will advance directly to the playoffs. In addition, the four strongest third places will continue to participate in the competition.

The following national teams will compete for direct access to the 1/8 finals of these competitions from Quartet “B”: Spain, Italy, Croatia and Albania. To more accurately determine which teams will take the first two places, it is necessary to study the form of each of them.


“Red Fury” is the favorite of this quartet and this status belongs to the team deservedly. In the selection, Spain suffered one defeat, but won in seven matches, ahead of the second “Tartan Army” by four points. Luis de la Fuente Castillo’s team’s attack averaged just over three goals per 90 minutes of playing time and conceded less than one.

The Fury Roja’s quartet is one of the most difficult in the tournament. At the same time, the team’s selection of players is excellent and the Spaniards look very confident in terms of gameplay. Alvaro Morata and his partners are quite capable of getting ahead of modest Albania, as well as unstable Italy and Croatia.

The Azure Team looked unconvincing in qualifying, but still managed to finish in second place in Group C. Italy was unable to compete with England, and was ahead of Ukraine only in additional indicators. In addition, in the final round of the qualifying group stage against the Ukrainians, Luciano Spalletti’s charges looked extremely unconvincing in terms of gameplay. The Italians also had a difficult away match with North Macedonia, which they failed to win.

The Azzurra Squadra has many talented performers, and the team’s names are not inferior to their opponents. It’s just that the players of the Italian national team periodically have problems with teamwork. At the same time, Gianluigi Donnarumma and his partners are able to prepare themselves properly and, at a minimum, make it to the playoffs.


“Checkers” played several disgusting matches in the qualifying round and only at the end of the tournament snatched a second ticket to the final part of the 2024 European Championship. In two matches with Wales, Croatia scored only one point, and Turkey unexpectedly lost to a clean sheet in Osijek. It is important to note that the “fiery” conceded only four goals in eight games, that is, an average of one goal per two matches. However, in qualifying, Luka Modric and company often looked extremely unconvincing.

The “checkers” squad is quite good and Zlatko Dalic knows how to work with the players, because he has been leading the Croatian national team since 2017. It will be difficult for the “fiery” ones to compete with Spain, but Croatia is quite capable of creating problems for the “Squadra Azzurre”. At the same time, Luka Modric and his partners should not expect an easy ride in any of the group stage battles.


The Mountain Eagles are the main outsider of the group, but the team will try to surprise and create problems for all opponents. In qualifying, the Albanians’ quintet was not particularly formidable. However, Silvinho’s team were able to get ahead of the Czech Republic and Poland. At the same time, the “red-blacks” suffered only one defeat and conceded only four goals in eight battles. It is worth noting that at the end of the selection, Albania managed to take first place miraculously after draws with Moldova and the Faroe Islands.

The Red-Blacks are famous for their team play, but periodically experience difficulties even with extremely weak opponents. Of course, the “mountain eagles” can get ready for battles with famous national teams, but they are unlikely to be able to aim for at least third place.

Our forecast

Spain looks stronger than all opponents in terms of gameplay and is likely to take first place in the quartet. Italy and Croatia will compete for the second direct ticket to the playoffs and preference in this pair should be given to the more well-played checkers, because the constant success of the Azzurra cannot last forever. The Mountain Eagles will try to be in the top three, but most likely the Albanians will finish their participation in the tournament already at the group stage.
