Cape Town - For clarity, members of the media are advised on the Rule below relating to the second leg of the 2015/16 MTN8 semi-finals on how the match will be decided in an event of a draw.

Rule 6.4 reads:

“Both semi-final ties will consist of two legs played on a home and away basis. The club which scores a higher aggregate number of goals in the two matches of each semi-final tie will qualify for the final.

“6.4.1 If after the end of regular time of the second match of each tie, the two clubs have scored the same number of goals during the two matches, the club which will have scored the greater number of away goals will qualify for the final.

“6.4.2 If the number of away goals is also the same the winner of the tie will be determined by the taking of penalty kicks according to the Laws of the Game. There will be no extra time.”
