Final[edit]

The winner is determined by points (i.e., whoever wins the most of two games); goal difference or aggregate score is not used. If the points are tied after two games, a single-game playoff at a neutral sight will be played. If the game is tied after regulation, a penalty shootout will determine the winner.
