    Rules in the event of equality of points in the group stage of Euro 2024

    What are the rules in the event of equality of points in the group stage of Euro 2024? Is the mutual result or the goal difference leading? Article 20 of the tournament conditions states the following. [ref]

    If two or more teams in the same group are tied on points, the ranking will be determined according to the following rules in the event of a tie in the group of Euro 2024.

    1. Highest number of points in the matches between the respective teams;
    2. Highest goal difference in the matches between the respective teams;
    3. Highest number of goals scored in the matches between the respective teams.

    If, after applying the previous rules, teams are still tied, the same rules are applied again, but only for the remaining teams. This is the case if, for example, three or four teams were initially tied, and after all head-to-head results, now only two. If there is still no result, the following rules apply for a tie in the group.

    1. Highest goal difference in all group matches;
    2. Highest number of goals scored in all group matches;
    3. Lowest disciplinary points (yellow and red cards);
    4. Highest position in the overall ranking of the qualifying series. If Germany (automatically qualified as host country) is involved in this comparison, then a draw will determine.

    If two teams with the same number of points and the same number of goals scored and conceded play their last group match against each other, and are still tied after regulation time, the group standings will be decided by penalty kicks. If more than two teams have the same number of points at the end of the group stage, the above rules will apply in the event of a tie.
