the following is GR D's possible opponents of Malta ; League D: Azerbaijan, Macedonia, Belarus, Georgia, Armenia, Latvia, Faroe Islands, Luxembourg, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Liechtenstein, Malta, Andorra, Kosovo, San Marino, Gibraltar.

Malta is in pot 3 alongside Moldova, Liechtenstein and Kazakhstan and will be drawn alongside a team from each of the other pots.

Pot 1: Azerbaijan, Macedonia, Belarus, Georgia
Pot 2: Armenia, Latvia, Faroe Islands, Luxembourg

Pot 4: Andorra, Kosovo, Gibraltar, San Marino

But I have a question what will happen to the qualifiers for 2020 EC ?

It is actually an extra burden on the clubs

So: it will mostly replace friendlies, and takes place over two years. There will be a total of 6 games for each country over the two years for the Nations League: home and away against each team in their group (apart from qualifiers for other competitions, of course).

Then, after all 6 games are played, the winners of the 4 groups in League A face off for the title (I'm not sure if it's KO or round robin). The winners of each group in each of the other 3 leagues are promoted one division higher. The bottom team in each group in leagues A-C are relegated.

Finally, only 20 teams will qualify from EURO 2020 qualifiers. The remaining 4 teams will be determined by the Nations League. Now, I'm not sure whether I've understood this correctly. If I have, what happens is that the best 4 teams from each league which have NOT already qualified for the EURO through traditional qualifiers play against each other in playoffs, so that one team from each league makes it to EURO 2020. If this is the case, it greatly increases Malta's chances. However, I'm not sure whether the 16 teams which have not qualified are drawn against each other or whether 1 spot is allocated to each league (so the 4 teams of each league only play against each other).

It is complicated ... I have to check again

Yeah I'm not sure I got it 100% right either. I think so though.

I don't think there was enough info on this. Unless I'm mistaken this was thought up quite recently, no?

I think it was formulated early this year.

I think you put it perfectly, it will replace friendly games...
the group winners will play each other in s/f and a final... the overall winners will qualify to euro 2020 and also get promoted.

In order for Malta to qualify we need to win our group..reach the semi and win the final .. . we have big chance indeed :P

So it's a KO. I think it would be fairer as a round robin. It would only mean one extra game for each of the countries.

But are those SFs against other teams from League D? That's what I can't understand. If it is, it's not THAT impossible if we improve in coming years and get a decent group.

yes there are 16 teams in Sec D.
They will be divided into four groups. The winners of each group will play a semi F and an eventual final .

IMO there only 2 to three countries worst than us
