Any lingering doubts about Friday's Euro 2020 play-off draw have now been wiped away after UEFA confirmed the Republic of Ireland will travel to Slovakia for a semi-final clash on 26 March.

Slovakia: What we know about our play-off opponents

Mick McCarthy's men drew with Denmark on Monday night and missed out on automatic qualification, while Wales' defeat of Hungary consigned the Slovaks to the back-door route.

Both sides were sited in the Path B group and had known since Tuesday night that it was 99% certain they would face off, Slovakia getting home advantage due to their higher ranking.

The tiny doubt over the tie existed because UEFA reserved the right to change the format of tomorrow's draw but they have now confirmed the fixtures.

Ireland will face the Slovaks in the spring, with the game most likely to be played in either the 22,500-capacity Tehelné pole stadium in Bratislava or the Anton Malatinský Stadium - which holds 19,200 - in Trnava. Slovakia must confirm the venue by 20 December. 

Bosnia and Herzegovina host Northern Ireland in the other semi-final.

Tomorrow's draw in in Nyon will determine which country gets home advantage for the decider, which will be played on 31 March.

The draw for the finals takes place in Bucharest on 30 November. If Ireland do get through the play-offs, they will definitely be placed in Group E alongside Spain, playing two games at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin and the other in Bilbao.
