It may be too late, but it's a fact. The SuperLeague returns -from where it stopped- after a break of three months and makes a cross on June 7 (s.s. next Saturday).
It was the beginning of March (specifically the 1st of the month) when the last match of the regular season took place, from where the 6 teams of the playoffs and the 8 of the playoffs emerged.
The process is as follows: in the playoffs there will be 10 games with the teams playing inside and outside with everyone and in the playoffs 7 games.
The teams start the playoffs with the same points that completed the regular season, while all matches are played behind closed doors.

The program and the score of the playoffs

Title, European tickets and demotion
The champion is the team (of those who participated in the Playoffs) which after the completion of the Playoffs will have the highest score (ie it will have accumulated the most points during the Normal Period and the Playoffs in total).
The champion will also get the ticket for the Champions League (3rd qualifying round).
The team that wins the 2nd place will also take part in the Champions League, but starting from the 2nd qualifying round of the process. This year, there are 5 teams coming out of Europe. So, if the first two take part in the Champions League, there are three tickets left for the Europa League.
It should be noted that Panathinaikos is penalized and does not have the right to participate in the European Cups (it has appealed), so it is logical that the teams that will take part in the playoffs have already secured a European ticket.
Of course, it remains to be seen what will happen with the Cup, as the winner (of the Cup) will get the "good" ticket (3rd qualifier). However, if the winner of the Cup is one of the teams that will be present in the Champions League, the "good" ticket will go to the team that will win the 3rd place in the playoffs.
In the playoffs, the 14th team is relegated directly and the 13th will play a draw with the 2nd team of SuperLeague 2 (former Football League). The winner will win the last ticket for the big category.
In case two or more teams are tied, after the completion of the Playoffs and Playouts Phase (BP phase), the following criteria will be applied in order:
i. In the event that the scoreboard shows a tie, then a new, auxiliary team is drawn up for the tiered teams, with all the points scored by each of them in all the matches of the Championship (ie he will have accumulated the most points). during the Normal Period and Playoffs / Playouts cumulatively).
ii. If, after the drafting of the above auxiliary table, a new team tie is reached, then for the teams that are tied again, a new, auxiliary table is drawn up based on the goal difference between each of the newly ranked teams in all of them. between the matches of the Championship (ie it will have the biggest goal difference in the matches between them during the Normal Period and the Playoffs / Playouts in total).
iii. If even then a new team leveling occurs, then, for the re-leveling teams, a new special auxiliary table is drawn up based on the position of each team among the re-equalized teams in the Normal Period of the Championship according to par. 6 above. .
