Championship playoff[edit]

Peñarol and Defensor Sporting qualified to the championship playoffs as the Apertura and Clausura winners, respectively. Additionally, Peñarol re-qualified as the team with the most points in the season aggregate table. Given this situation, an initial playoff was held between the two teams. Peñarol would become the season champion with a win; Defensor Sporting needed to win the playoff to force a two-legged final.
