Qualification Playing System

In each qualification group the teams play each other once. Teams will qualify for the  Final Round according to the following results:

The three best teams from each qualification group and the two best 4th placed teams will qualify. 
Since the number of teams between the qualification groups differ, the group sizes will be equalised by removing the results from the matches against the lowest placed teams in the larger-sized group before comparing the average results.

The calculation of the best 4th teams will follow this order: 1. Average number of points 2. Average goal difference 3. Average scored goals 4. Lottery drawing.
