- Highest number of points obtained in the head-to-head matches between the teams;
- Goal difference obtained in the head-to-head matches between the tied teams (if more than two teams are tied);
- Highest number of goals scored in the head-to-head matches between the teams (if more than two teams are tied);
- If, after applying criteria 1 to 3, two teams still tie, then criteria 1 to 3 must be reapplied between these two teams. If these teams are still tied, the position is determined by criteria 5 to 9;
- Goal difference obtained in all matches in the group;
- Highest number of goals scored in all matches in the group;
