Enter the number of goals scored by the home team in the first match, the number of goals scored by the away team in the second match, the number of goals scored by the away team in the first match, and the number of goals scored by the home team in the second match into the calculator to determine the winner.

## Away Goal Rule Formula

The following formula can be used to determine the winner of a two-legged knockout match using the Away Goal Rule.

W = (H1 + A2) - (A1 + H2)

Variables:

- W is the winner of the match (if W > 0, Home team wins; if W < 0, Away team wins; if W = 0, the match is a draw)
- H1 is the number of goals scored by the home team in the first match
- A2 is the number of goals scored by the away team in the second match
- A1 is the number of goals scored by the away team in the first match
- H2 is the number of goals scored by the home team in the second match

To calculate the winner, add the number of goals scored by the home team in the first match to the number of goals scored by the away team in the second match. Then subtract the sum of the number of goals scored by the away team in the first match and the number of goals scored by the home team in the second match. If the result is greater than zero, the home team wins. If the result is less than zero, the away team wins. If the result is zero, the match is a draw.

## What is an Away Goal Rule?

The Away Goal Rule is a method used in football (soccer) to determine the winner in two-legged knockout matches, where each team plays one match at home and one away. If the aggregate score is tied after both games, the team that scored more goals in their away match is declared the winner. This rule is used to encourage attacking play from the visiting team and to provide a tie-breaker that takes into account the difficulty of scoring goals away from home.
