After Extra Time (AET)
In cup matches after extra time (aet) refers to a result that comes when a game goes into extra time. Many two leg ties see the teams tied, for example after two games the score is 2-2. In this situation, the game goes into extra time, two 15-minute halves, to see if any team can break the deadlock by getting a winning score. The result after this period of play is called after extra time.
- Example: PSG defeated Chelsea after extra time in the Champions League on away goals.
- Northern Ireland 1-2 Slovakia (aet) (Guardian.co.uk, 12 November 2020).
