The implementation of tiebreakers becomes crucial in establishing the final standings, offering a distinct methodology for differentiation beyond just points. This article thoroughly explores these tiebreaker mechanisms, ranging from head-to-head confrontations to disciplinary records. Below is an overview of each rule during the evaluation process:

Durand Cup Tie-Breakers Procedures:

  2. Head-to-head Match Record
  3. Goal difference
    • If both H2H and GD are same, goals scored will be considered
