What happens if there is a tie in the group?

In case of a tie in the group of the World Cup qualification, additional rules apply. First the goal difference and then the number of goals scored counts. In the first instance, the position in the group is of course determined by the total number of points achieved.

The numbers 1 qualify directly for the final tournament, while the numbers 2 play play-offs. It is therefore important to determine what happens in the event of a tie in the groups.

The position in the group is determined as follows:

  1. Points: Most points from all group matches.
  2. Goal difference: difference in the number of goals scored from all group matches.
  3. Goals For: Most goals scored in all group matches.

When two or more countries are tied based on the previous three criteria, the ranking is determined based on mutual results:

  1. Points: most points from the group matches between the teams concerned.
  2. Goal difference: difference in the number of goals scored from the group matches between the teams concerned.
  3. Goals For: Most goals scored in the the group matches between the teams concerned.
  4. Away goals count double: the goals scored in away matches count double in the group matches between the teams concerned (in case of two tied teams)

When two or more countries are equal on the basis of all the previous mutual criteria, other factors are considered:

  1. Fair play: when countries are exactly equal in the group in all cases, the number of yellow and red cards is considered. The country with the fewest fair play points ends up higher in the ranking. The score is as follows:
    • Yellow card: -1 point
    • Red card due to 2 yellow cards: -3 points
    • Direct red card: -4 points
    • Yellow card followed by a direct red card: -5 points
  2. Draw: if all statistics are equal, a draw will be made by FIFA.
