Tie-breakers for France 2019 groups

France 2019 group

tie-breakers

The groups are well underway at the FIFA Women’s World Cup, but what happens if your side finishes level on points with another team?


How are the final placings in the groups determined?

If two or more teams in the same group are equal on points after the completion of the group stage, the following criterion (in order) will determine the ranking:


- Greatest number of points in all matches

- Superior goal difference in all matches

- Most goals scored in all matches


Easy, right? Not so fast…

If two or more teams in the same group are equal on the criteria in the slide before, the rankings will be determined by the following (in order):


- greatest number of points in matches between the teams concerned

- superior goal difference in the matches between the teams concerned

- greatest number of goals scored in all group matches between the teams concerned

- best disciplinary record (see full regulations at the end)

- drawing of lots by FIFA


But what about the 3rd place teams?

The four best teams among those ranked 3rd in the groups will be determined by:


- Greatest number of points in all matches

- Superior goal difference in all matches

- Most goals scored in all matches

- Best disciplinary record

- Drawing of lots by FIFA

WILL YOUR TEAM MAKE IT?
