Last updated

Group 5 of the 2021 UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying competition consists of six teams: Serbia, Poland, Russia, Bulgaria, Latvia, and Estonia.

The group was originally scheduled to be played in home-and-away round-robin format between 5 September 2019 and 13 October 2020. Under the original format, the group winners and the best runners-up among all nine groups (not counting results against the sixth-placed team) would qualify directly for the final tournament, while the remaining eight runners-up would advance to the play-offs. [2]

On 17 March 2020, all matches were put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. [3] On 17 June 2020, UEFA announced that the qualifying group stage would be extended and end on 17 November 2020, while the play-offs, originally scheduled to be played in November 2020, would be cancelled. Instead, the group winners and the five best runners-up among all nine groups (not counting results against the sixth-placed team) would qualify for the final tournament. [4] [5] [6]
