This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • This question is not a duplicate, other questions ask about tiebreaker at the end of season, I'm asking if the teams have not played each and there is no head to head and they are tied, while the season is on going,how is the order generated? – napoleon Sep 17 '17 at 22:26
  • Because the most correct duplicate of your question is this one: Tiebreakers to decide league position in football (soccer)?. I.e the question to which this question is referenced as a duplicate is itself a duplicate of aforementioned question. – gdrt Sep 18 '17 at 11:47
  • So the answer to your question is: they occupy the same position in the table, which is contained in the mentioned link. – gdrt Sep 18 '17 at 11:54

    true they occupy the position but as you can see from the image, it looks like the final order is done alphabetically.I just wanted if this was correct.apologies for any confusion caused – napoleon Sep 19 '17 at 1:32
  • You're right, even official site of the tournament shows City as first, but definitely for alphabetical reasons as you've already mentioned. – gdrt Sep 19 '17 at 9:09
