Notes

1 The Limón–Carmelita match was suspended because of an unpaid 30 million debt to the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social. Limón tried to appeal the suspension in order to reprogram the game. However, the appeal was denied by the Competition Committee and Limón was sanctioned with a 0–3 loss.[4]
