In the first round, the matchups are:

  • Match A (1 vs. 8)

  • Match C (3 vs. 6)
  • Match D (4 vs. 5)

In the second round, the matchups are:

  • Winner A vs. Winner C

For the two second round winners, the team with the better record in the aggregate table will receive the Venezuela 3 berth, while the other team will receive the Venezuela 4 berth.
