At each stage of the tournament teams receive 3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, and no points for a loss. If two or more teams are equal on points, the following criteria will be applied to determine which team advances to the next round:[4]

  1. better goal difference;
  2. higher number of away goals scored;
  3. penalty shootout.
