Under the new playoff format , up to three rounds may be required. The final two rounds are two-legged ties, while opening round matches if required are single legs hosted by the higher-ranked team. If a tie is drawn at the end of regular play one or two matches, depending on the round , extra time is played.
If the two teams are still tied after thirty minutes, the higher classified team advances. In the relegation zone, the three last-placed teams 20th, 21st and 22nd are automatically demoted to Serie C. If the 18th-placed team is 5 or more points ahead of the 19th-placed team, then the 19th-placed team becomes the 4th and final team to be demoted, otherwise the conditions for a playoff more commonly called playout exist. If the playout is necessary, the 18th and 19th-placed teams are paired in a two-legged series with home-field advantage in the 2nd leg going to the 18th-placed team.
