UEFA Nations League 2020-21: Tournament Information and Sports Betting Odds
The UEFA Nations League is a tournament that was created with the intention of partially replacing friendly matches while also increasing the interest of international fixtures.
The main prize of the current 2020-21 Nations League tournament is a place in the World Cup Playoffs for the two top-ranked teams. Good performances in the tournament will also affect the team's world ranking, so it is difficult to underestimate the importance of the UEFA Nations League.

Rules and Regulations
All 55 European teams will take part in the 2020-21 Nations League. They are divided into four leagues (A,B,C,D) depending on their spot in the UEFA rankings. The first three leagues are divided into four groups, League D with the weakest teams is divided into two groups.

The best in the groups B, C and D will move up a league. The worst teams from Leagues A and B will move down one league.
Since there are four groups in League C and two in League D, two teams will be relegated from League C, which will determine the outcome of the playoffs in March 2022.
If the team that finished last in the League C group makes its way to the 2022 World Cup play-offs through qualification, then League C will automatically lose the 47th and 48th teams in the League of Nations rating.
