Is it only the top team that go through and then the runners up play in a play-off?

EDIT: Yeah it's top teams that qualify, then the top 8 runners up play off for 4 places

CROATIA IS MILES AHEAD OF YOU TECHNICALLY, TACTICALLY AND MENTALLY….NOW WHEN MODRIC WILL JOIN ARSENAL OR CHELSEA, IT WILL BE EVEN BETTER.

OLIC AND PETRIC ARE TOP TEN STRIKERS IN BUNDESSLIGA, CORLUKA STANDARD IN GREAT CITY SIDE OF MR SVEN….

WHAT ABOUT KRANCHIE? THE MVP AND FANTAZISTA OF HARRY'S PORTSMOUTH….

I WOULD UNDERSTAND THIS OVERCONFINDENCE AND COCKINESS, BUT YOU WERE JUST HUMILIATED LESS THAN A WEEK AGO? WORST DEFEAT IN YOUR FOOTBALL HISTORY ACCORDING TO TIMES READERS….

GROW UP AND ADMIT THAT IT WILL BE BETWEEN YOU AND UKRAINE FOR SECOND Eye-wink

THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY YOU COUD POSSIBLY CHLENGE CROATIA - BRING JOSE IN!

OR TAKE BILIC, YOU HAVE MORE MONEY THAN SKILL AND BRAINS ANYWAY!

CAN'T WAIT TO GO TO WEMBLEY AGAIN! I CAN SEE GERARD AND LAMPARD ALREADY SHAKING AND SHI….. PANTS!

AND IN ZAGREB, LAST TIME WAS TWO, WE WILL MAKE IT THREE TIHS TIME AROUND, ROBINSON, CARSON OR SOME OTHER LOSER ON THE GOAL…

YOU DID NOT HAVE DECENT GOLLY SINCE PETER SCHILTON….HAHAHAHA

Top team qualify in all 9 group's.
8 best runners up go into play-offs, the points against the bottom seeded team are taken off to make all groups even (Group 9/Scotland's group only has 5 teams). HOWEVER:

What happens if the 3rd placed team has more points than the 2nd placed team after these points are taken off?! It is quite possible. It states the 8 best runner-ups but teams might be runner-ups AFTER the points deduction so do the points come off ater the runners up have been set aside or not?!
Even worse what happens if the group winner has less points than the 2nd or even 3rd place team after these points are taken off?!

I think I've gone crosseyed.
