Bet on soccer today here on YesPlay.bet. By the way, the Colombian Primera A is a good tournament to start with.
In terms of the format, the competition is more similar to the South American top-flight leagues than to European ones. Involving the 20 Colombia Primera A teams annually, the league consists of two parts: Apertura and Finalizacion. As a result, in every season there are two finals and two champions.
Both parts of the competition have the same format. First, all 20 teams participate in the round-robin tournament. They play 19 matches against all the contenders, and one extra fixture against their regional rivals. After that, 8 highest clubs from the Colombia Primera A table advance to the knockout phase.
All the fixtures in the knockout phase are double-legged. The 8 teams play in pairs in the quarter-finals, and then the 4 winners proceed to the semi-finals. The winners of the semis advance to the final and fight for the Apertura or Finalizacion title.
In the knockout phase, if some teams’ Categoria Primera A results are equal, the extra time and then a penalty series define the winner. The winners of both parts of the season qualify for the next edition of the Copa Libertadores. The same goes for the highest non-qualified team from the common Colombia Primera A table. Moreover, the 4 next non-qualified clubs from the total table are eligible for the Copa Sudamericana.
Every season, 2 Colombia Primera A teams are relegated to the Primera B. These are the clubs with the worst aggregate results over the past 3 seasons.
