Tiebreakers[edit]

If two or more clubs are equal on points on completion of the group matches, the following criteria are applied to determine the rankings:[5]

  1. superior goal difference;
  2. higher number of goals scored;
  3. scores of the group matches played among the clubs in question;
  4. higher number of goals scored away in the group matches played among the clubs in question;
  5. best position in the Relegation table;
  6. fair play ranking;
  7. drawing of lots.

Group Stage[edit]

Every group is composed by four clubs, two from Liga MX and two from Ascenso MX. Instead of a traditional robin-round schedule, the clubs will play in three two-legged "rounds", the last one been contested by clubs of the same league.[4]

Each win gives a club 3 points, each draw gives 1 point. An extra point is awarded for every round won; a round is won by aggregated score, and if it is a tie, the tiebreakers should be used.[5]

In this stage, all the rounds will be one-off game. If the game ends in a tie, there will proceed to penalty shootouts directly. The venue will be determined as follows:[5]

  • If both clubs are from the same league, the highest seeded club will host the match.
