Group E of UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying is one of the ten groups to decide which teams will qualify for the UEFA Euro 2020 finals tournament.[1] Group E consists of five teams: Azerbaijan, Croatia, Hungary, Slovakia and Wales,[2] where they will play against each other home-and-away in a round-robin format.[3]

The top two teams will qualify directly for the finals. Unlike previous editions, the participants of the play-offs will not be decided based on results from the qualifying group stage, but instead based on their performance in the 2018–19 UEFA Nations League.
