Intermediary round[edit]

The intermediary playoffs were drawn at random when the preliminary groups were drawn. As there were ten groups but only eight places in the final tournament, four group winners had to play in the intermediary round. The winners of Group 2 were drawn to play the winners of Group 4, whilst Group 8 and Group 10's winners would play each other. The two legs were played in both competing teams' home regions.
