2019 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualification Group 1

Group 1 of the 2019 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying competition consisted of six teams: Czech Republic, Croatia, Greece, Moldova, Belarus and San Marino. The composition of the nine groups in the qualifying group stage was decided by the draw held on 26 January 2017,[1][2] with the teams seeded according to their coefficient ranking.[3]

The group was played in home-and-away round-robin format between 7 June 2017 and 15 October 2018. The group winners qualified directly for the final tournament, while the runners-up advanced to the play-offs if they were one of the four best runners-up among all nine groups (not counting results against the sixth-placed team).[4]
