When ranking the League B runners-up from round 1 to determine the team promoted to League A for round 2 (see Paragraph 14.04a), the results against the fourth-ranked teams are discarded.


If there is a vacancy to fill in the final tournament and it is therefore necessary to rank the League A runners-up from round 2 (see Paragraph 16.04), all matches are taken into account.


When ranking runners-up as indicated in Paragraph 18.01 and Paragraph 18.02, the following criteria apply, in the order given:

  1. higher number of points;

  2. superior goal difference;

  3. higher number of goals scored;

  4. lower disciplinary points total based only on yellow and red cards received by players and team officials (red card = 3 points, yellow card = 1 point, expulsion for two yellow cards in one match = 3 points);

  5. higher position in the applicable ranking:

    1. for teams in round 1, position in the coefficient rankings (see Annex A);

    2. for teams in round 2, position in the round 1 league ranking (see Paragraph 15.01b).
