Notes


  1. The Italy v Serbia match, originally scheduled for 20:50 CEST, was delayed to 21:30 CEST.
  2. The Italy v Serbia match was abandoned after six minutes due to rioting by Serbian fans. The UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body awarded the match as a 3–0 forfeit win to Italy.[3]
  3. As punishment for the crowd trouble at the abandoned Italy v Serbia match, Serbia was ordered to play its next home match against Northern Ireland behind closed doors, with another one-match crowd ban deferred for a probationary period of two years. Italy received a one-match crowd ban deferred for a probationary period of two years. However the Irish Football Association objected and as a result UEFA decreed that Serbia's game against Northern Ireland would only be allowed to have 200 Northern Irish fans attend it.[16][3] Serbian fans were not allowed to visit the away game against Estonia.[17]
  4. The goal tally takes into account the original result of fixtures that were subsequently forfeited, not the awarded scoreline.
