Tiebreakers

The teams are ranked according to points (3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, 0 points for a loss). If tied on points, tiebreakers are applied in the following order:[5]

  1. Goal difference in all the group matches;
  2. Greater number of goals scored in all the group matches;
  3. If, after applying criteria 1 and 2, teams still have an equal ranking, criteria 1 and 2 are reapplied exclusively to the matches between the teams in question to determine their final rankings. If this procedure does not lead to a decision, criteria 4 to 8 apply;
  4. Penalty shoot-out if only two teams are involved and they are both on the field of play;
  5. Least number of red cards
  6. Least number of yellow cards
  7. Team who belongs to the member association with the higher AFC ranking.
  8. Drawing of lots, coin toss or play-off match as determined by the Executive Committee
