Liguilla[edit]

The qualified teams play two games against each other on a home-and-away basis. The winner of each match up is determined by aggregate score.

The teams were seeded two to seven in the quarterfinals, and the winners are joined by the top-ranked team in the semi-finals. The teams are re-seeded one to four in the semifinals, depending on their position in the general table. The higher seeded teams play on their home field during the second leg.
