Round of 16 Pairings (unofficial)

Here's the top 16 of the UFL based on the usual tie-breaks and rankings.
I still haven't heard any word if the top qualifiers will be seeded to 1 to 7 and the second-best to 8 to 14 and the wild cards get 15 and 16.

If that's the scenario, we could see No. 15 Global against the Army.  If not, the scenario could be Global against Nomads. The Group of Death and Group G have three qualifiers each

Here's the rankings:

Rank                   GF         GA     GD      P
1.) Loyola             27         2       25        9
2.) Army FC         24         0        24        9
3.) PAF                23         3        20        9
4.) Nomads         13          0        13        9
5.) Kaya              14          3        11        9
6.)
Archers           12          1        11       7
7.) Pachanga       8            2         6        7 
8.) Diliman           18          4        14       6
9.) Stallions        11           4         7         6
10.)  PNAVY        12           6         6        6

13.) Global FC      7            5        2        4

if all 16 teams are ranked based on the usual tie-breaks and rankings, Wildcard Teams may end up higher than outright qualified teams, which is unfair.

How can a club who finished second in their group be ranked lower than a club who came in as third best only? Doesn’t make sense. or Weird or maybe UFL is doing.

UFL Rankings Round of 16 should be based firstly on group rankings. Teams 1-7 for 7 top teams, 8-14 for 2nd placers, 15 & 16 for 2 best 3rd.

Perhaps they're doing that since some are in tougher groups than others? I really don't know.

At first, I thought the top 2 qualifiers will be ranked 1 to 14, regardless of their group rankings, while the wild cards will get 15 and 16.

Post from KayaFC has the wild cards at No. 15 and 16. I guess, it's 1 to 7 for top qualifiers and 8 to 14 for 2nd qualifiers.

Official list will be out on Nov. 3.
