If the match is drawn during the normal time of 90 minutes, to decide the match an extra time of 30 minutes is allowed for the teams which were two halves of 15 minutes each. In some cases, the extra 30 minutes are played on a sudden-death basis which means as soon as a team scored the goal the match is finished.
