    Champions League tie breaking...

    So I thought I would end up first in my group stage, as the top 3 had equal points but I had superior goal difference.
    But for some reason I ended up third. Can someone explain how this works.

    I looked up tie breaking rules for top eleven but rule two still stated that a superior goal difference was the second criteria to look at.
    I'm really confused as to why I'm not first as in the real Champions League I would have ended up first.

    Superior GD in matches played among the tied teams. Barring the last team, your GD is apparently -2. Please upload all the matches' picture to make it a bit clear.

    A good defence is the best offense.

    Never mind, I learned today, it must be because of the matches played between the teams, and the goal difference between us.

    I always thought it was just goal difference that was the tie breaker but it is not.

    Sorry to waste your time.

    The overall goal difference is the last straw — say both matches between 2 tied teams ended 0-0, then the total GD will come to effect.

    Here are all duels, but now I understand it, they are better because in the duels between the three of us they had the better goal difference, or more goals.

    CL is a little different when it comes to tie breaking compared to the league.
    Sorry to see that, getting kicked out of the CL with 12 points and +14 GD sucks! But next time you will do better

    This is how it works—
    At first, 3 teams were tied, so this was the standings comparing head to head:
    T-P-GF-GA-AwayGoals-GD
    Yusuf FC-6-6-4-3-(+2)
    Alpasian SK-6-4-4-4-(0)
    You-6-4-6-2-(-2)

    Yusuf FC qualifies thus, leaving you two tied:

    Alpasian SK-3-3-1-3(+2)
    You-3-1-3-3-(-2)

    Alphasian SK also qualifies. Thus you're out.

    You should've qualified, since you won the first two (the chronology is left-to-right, top-to-bottom or the opposite?)

    You don't need to do the highlighted bit, unless they were tied on points and GD in the first 'mini-league'. He was eliminated in that stage, not because of his head-to-head with the one in second place.

    Yusuf 4 2 0 2 6-4 +2 6
    Alpas 4 2 0 2 4-4 0 6
    WBen 4 2 0 2 4-6 -2 6

    Either way he would've been eliminated
