AFCON 2022 group tiebreakers

If two groups completed even on factors within the group stage, the next tiebreakers have been utilized to find out their rating, in line with the official competitors guidelines:

  1. Most factors obtained in matches between the 2 groups;
  2. Goal distinction in all group matches;
  3. Most targets scored in all group matches;
  4. Drawing of heaps (i.e. random draw).

If three or extra groups completed tied on factors on the finish of the group stage, the tiebreaker formulation modifications barely: 

  1. Most factors obtained in matches between the groups involved;
  2. Goal distinction in matches between the groups involved;
  3. Most targets scored in matches between the groups involved;
  4. Goal distinction in all group matches;
  5. Most targets scored in all group matches;
  6. Drawing of heaps (i.e. random draw).

One twist to the situation involving three or extra groups: If tiebreakers Nos. 1-3 succeed in separating at the very least one crew from the remaining, then those self same tiebreakers Nos. 1-3 are reapplied to the remaining groups earlier than transferring on to standards Nos. 4-6.
