First Round[edit]

The teams were divided into three groups of four teams each. Each team plays one match against each of the other teams within the same group. Two (2) points are awarded for a win, one (1) point for a draw and zero (0) points for a defeat. First and second placed teams, in each group, advance to the quarter-finals. The two best third place teams also advance to the quarter-finals.

    3. winner of the head-to-head match between the teams in question;
