The formula

In the first phase, the 32 participating teams were divided into 8 groups of four teams each competing in an Italian round with home and away matches along three “windows”. Only the first three teams in the standings qualify for the second phase, forming a further six-party group with the first three qualified teams of the matched group, taking with them the points scored with the other teams that have passed the round. In the second round, only the teams that did not clash in the first phase face each other in home and away matches. Only the top three in the second round qualify for the World Cup. The Italy group will cross with group G, the one made up of Spain, Georgia, North Macedonia and Ukraine.
