If two or more teams in the same group are equal on points on completion, the following criteria are applied, in the order given, to determine the rankings:

a. higher number of points obtained in the group matches played among the teams in question;

b. superior goal difference from the group matches played among the teams in question;

c. higher number of goals scored in the group matches played among the teams in question;

d. if, after having applied criteria a) to c), teams still have an equal ranking, criteria a) to c) are reapplied exclusively to the group matches between the teams in question to determine their final rankings. If this procedure does not lead to a decision, criteria e) to h) apply;

e. superior goal difference in all group matches;

f. higher number of goals scored in all group matches;

g. lower disciplinary points total based only on yellow and red cards received in all group matches (red card = 3 points, yellow card = 1 point, expulsion for two yellow cards in one match = 3 points);

h. position in the UEFA Under-21 national team coefficient ranking for the final draw.

In addition, if two teams which have the same number of points and the same number of goals scored and conceded play their last group match against each other and are still equal at the end of that match, their final rankings are determined by kicks from the penalty mark (see Paragraph 19.03 to Paragraph 19.05), provided that no other teams within the group have the same number of points on completion of all group matches.

The best runner-up is determined according to the following criteria applied, in the order given, to the final tournament group matches:

a. higher number of points;

b. superior goal difference;

c. higher number of goals scored;

d. lower disciplinary points total based only on yellow and red cards received in all group matches (red card = 3 points, yellow card = 1 point, expulsion for two yellow cards in one match = 3 points);

e. position in the UEFA Under-21 national team coefficient ranking for the final draw.

European Under-21 Championship: Betting preview


1.5pts Italy to win the tournament at 8/1 - can get the better of Germany in Group C and then price will drop further

3pts Sweden to win Group A at 10/3 - defending champions finished ahead of Spain in qualifying and have been drawn in the weakest of the three groups

Germany and Spain are the two clear favourites in the betting ahead of the 2017 UEFA European Under-21 Championship in Poland but I want to take on the leading duo.
