    First, the team that scored the most goals is the winner. To score a goal, the players must put the ball into the net. 

    For a win it is 3 points, draw 1 points & lost 0 points.

    Based on number of points, the winner will be decided in the league. If the points are same, then the goal difference will decide the winner.

    "Scoring" isn't the same as "points".  

    Scoring (or 'goals') is when the ball goes into the goal.  The team with the most goals in a game wins that game.

    Points has to do with the standing.  In most competitions, a team winning a game gets 3 points.  A tie they get 1 point.  A loss they get 0 points. Points are used to determine the overall champion and/or rankings at the end of the season.

    Basically, the league system is simple.

    The winning team gets 3 points; tie and both teams get 1 point. The losing team gets zero points.If two teams have the same number of points in the league table, the one with the highest goal difference is listed as being ahead. If still tied, it's the number of goals scored that determines placement. If still tied, then it's a matter of the games against each other and the goals scored against each other.

    Cup competitions are slightly different.

    There, it's the match that counts. Winner moves to the next round. If the first game is tied, there may be and extra period. If still tied, then there's a rematch, and it can have an extra period. If still tied, then there's the penalty shootout.

    Three for a win. One each for a draw. None if you lose.
