The play-offs for the last four tickets to the European Championship were actually scheduled for March, but the corona pandemic meant that the games had to be postponed.

Georgia (86th in the FIFA ranking) and North Macedonia (65th in the FIFA ranking) came fourth and third respectively in their European Championship qualifying pool, but thanks to the back door that the Nations League offers, the countries still have a chance to for the first time to qualify for a final tournament.

Georgia and North Macedonia both finished first in their group in Division D (the lowest level) of the Nations League of the 2018/2019 season, earning a spot in the play-offs of the European Championship qualification.

The Georgians, with former Vitesse players Guram Kashia and Valeri Qazaishvili as strongholds, last month dealt with Belarus (1-0) in the semi-finals, while the North Macedonians were 2-1 too strong for Kosovo in their own home.

As a result, there will be one all-deciding game between Georgia and North Macedonia on Thursday evening in the empty Boris Pajtsjadze stadium in Tbilisi. The kick-off is at 9 p.m.
