The top two teams from Australia's group will get direct qualification to the World Cup.
The third-place team in the group will playoff against the third-place team in Group A across a single match, with the winner to take on a team from another confederation for a ticket to Qatar.

Australia must finish either first or second in Group B, which includes 10 matches from September 2021 to March 2022, to qualify directly. A third-place finish would send the Socceroos to a playoff against the third-place team from Group A, followed by an intercontinental playoff.
