The draw for the semi-finals was made by drawing the winners of Group A against the runners-up of Group 2 and vice-versa, with group winners having home advantage. There will be no replays if the matches are drawn; instead, extra time will decide winners immediately thereafter. If extra time does not decide the winners, a set of five alternating penalty kicks will decide winners. They will take place on 6 October and 7 October 2008.
