With Albania's 3-0 win over Armenia tonight in Group I means that they have taken the second automatic qualification place and Denmark will have to contest the play-offs, alongside us.

Here is the list of play-off teams and their position in the race for the top third placed team spot, as things stand. Keep in mind that results against the bottom teams in respective groups don't county. Hence Ireland are only on 12 points.
