Coming to the seedings for the 3rd season, it was pretty obvious that France would be the top seed here as the defending champions. The seedings and the fixtures were announced in September 2021 in Moldova. The French team has been given a moderate draw with Denmark, Croatia and Austria up against them but the A2 group has a greater potential of causing a surprise with Spain, Portugal and Switzerland in the fray.

As much exciting as the first two groups get, the limelight is stolen by A3 with Italy, Germany and England having a straight tussle, paving way for some exciting contests. The last group A4 has Belgium as starting as the favourites to make it to the semis while the Netherlands are desperate of making some mark this time around.
