Different qualifiers

The UEFA qualifiers for that tournament were arranged in nine groups that had three or four teams. The www.1xbet.pk/live website can always be visited if you want to wager on the European qualifiers too.

After all matches were played, all the nine first-placed teams were taken and sorted from best to worst performing. The eight best qualified directly to the tournament. The worst first-placed team went to the aforementioned play-off. This place was taken by Hungary, whose current matches are also featured on the 1xBet website.

The South American qualifiers were slightly different. The nine squads that participated were divided into three groups of three teams each. The first-placed squad of each group qualified to a final round, which was also a group stage. The teams that ended in either first or second place automatically qualified to the 1978 FIFA World Cup. Bolivia, as the third-placed team, needed to play the play-off.
