Bilbao in Spain and Dublin in Ireland were supposed to host matches, but after local authorities refused to allow fans to attend the matches due to restrictions from Covid-19, European football’s governing body, UEFA, has chosen to move the matches from Bilbao to Seville and the matches from Dublin to St Petersburg.

Over the next month, 24 teams will play 51 games across the 11 host cities, with a few familiar nations among the favorites.
