From this setup, a total of 10 group winners secure direct qualification for the Round of 16 stage. Additionally, they are accompanied by the three highest-ranking runners-up from each of the two regions. This format ensures that the top-performing teams progress while allowing for a fair representation from both segments of the continent.
