When a match is resolved by penalties, it is considered as drawn match, including finals.
There are 4 levels, so the strongest leagues are in the top level (level 4). Each country has a number (example: Germany/4, Portugal/3, Austria/2 or Kazakhstan/1), it indicates the level for the league. Each level has different points by match. Each year the ranking for “The Strongest National League of the World” decides the level of each league for the next year.
Any domestic supercup is considered.
Only there are considered rounds because there are domestic cups with one match by round and domestic cups with two legs for a round. The global result decides. When a round is decided by penalties, it is considered as a drawn match.
Only there are considered the last 4 rounds (1/8, 1/4 semifinals and final) in order to homogenize every domestic cup in the world.
