A Match (マッチ, Matchi) is a best-of-three set of Duels.

The first Duelist to win two Duels is declared the winner of the Match. If a Duelist loses two Duels, they are considered to have lost the Match. If both Duelists have one loss in a Match and both receive a simultaneous Game Loss, the Match is considered a Double Loss.

It is possible to play more than three Duels in a Match, if Duels end in a Draw before the end of the round.

In tournaments, if Duelists have not completed their Matches when the round time ends, End of Match Procedure rules are used.

Some cards, such as "Victory Dragon", can end a Match if they reduce the opponent's Life Points to 0 with a direct attack (sometimes with additional conditions). All of them are unusable in tournaments, either due to being Forbidden or Limitation Text making them Illegal.
