Nations League 2020
The second edition is starting off this year. However, it does have quite a few changes in rules and systems from the first edition.
Groups play each other home and away, with the four gathering victors of League A meeting all requirements for the UEFA Nations League Finals in June 2021 which include semi-finals, a third-place coordinate and the last. The gathering victors in Leagues B, C and D gain advancement and the individuals who finish base of the gatherings in Leagues An and B will be consigned.
As League C has four gatherings while League D has just two, the two League C groups to be consigned will be controlled by two-leg end of the season games in March 2022. On the off chance that a group due to take an interest in the end of the season games fits the bill for the 2022 FIFA World Cup end of the season games (more on that beneath), the League C groups positioned 47th and 48th in the general UEFA Nations League rankings are consequently consigned.

Why form the UEFA Nations League?
Overall placings of each team will determine their seedings for the Euro 2020 qualifiers to be played from March 2019 to March 2020. Getting into the UEFA Nations League Finals will guarantee those top four teams from Division A, a group of less teams — five instead of six — in the Euro 2020 qualifiers.
