How to determine the winner from the play-off games?

Updated at: 23-5-2021 11:33 AM

Lebanon will face Vietnam over two legs on 23 and 25 May. The winners will qualify for the 2021 FIFA Futsal World Cup in Lithuania.

What’s the system of the playoff?

The Asian Play-offs will be played in two legs, with each pairing played in a home and away knockout format. In our case, the first match is considered to be played away and the second one at home.

Obviously, the team that scores the highest aggregate of goals over the two legs will qualify. In case both teams scored the same number of goals, the away rule applies.

If there’s still nothing to seperate both teams, 2 halves of extra time, each is 5 minutes long, will be played to determine the winner. Penalty kick should follow if both teams stay tied (away rule do not apply in extra time).
