If the two clubs that do not win the division are the two wild cards, then no extra playoff game is necessary, and tiebreakers decide which one is the first wild card. However, if the two losers are tied for the second wild card position, or tied with a third club from outside the division for a wild card position, then there would have to be another playoff.
