UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying Group G

Group G of UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying was one of the ten groups to decide which teams would qualify for the UEFA Euro 2020 finals tournament.[1] Group G consisted of six teams: Austria, Israel, Latvia, North Macedonia, Poland and Slovenia,[2] where they played against each other home-and-away in a round-robin format.[3]

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