Preliminary round[edit]

Directly advance to Round of 16
3rd place/Lucky Loser playoffs
Eliminated

The composition of the preliminary rounds was announced confirmed on 19 July 2012 in a draw held in Klagenfurt, Austria.[3]

Teams are awarded two points for a win and one for a loss.[4] If two teams are tied at the end of pool play, the tiebreakers is their head-to-head match.[4] If three or more teams are tied, the tiebreakers are (1) points between tied teams, (2) points ratio within pool, and (3) tournament seed.[4] The two best teams from each group directly advance to the round-of-16. The two best 3rd-placed teams also advance. The remaining four third-placed teams play one another in two Lucky Loser matches, and the two winners complete the list of 16 playoff teams.[5]
