Predict-a-Score… Champions League 2017/2018
…IT’S THE LAW – THE LAW OF PREDICT-A-SCORE!!!
- Competition entry tbc (basically your entry fee for the L13W2017 season covers this!)
- The Champions League competition will run alongside Lucky 13 Winter 2017 (Group Stage) & Spring 2018 (Last 16 Knockout Stage) and carry separate prize money (tbc)
- There is NO weekly prize in the Champions League
- During the Group Stage you will be playing against the people in your group
- Top 2 from each of the 8 qualifier groups will go through to the knockout stage in Spring 2016.
- Each player will have 6 group stage “matches” – 3 “home” & 3 “away” matches
- In each “match” the aim is to beat your opponents score and win 3 points.
- If scores (and correct scores) are equal, the match is a “draw” and 1 point is awarded to each player
- A “point difference” factor will come into the question if players finish on the same number of points after 6 games in their group. As always, correct scores are king if these points are equal!
- During the Last 16 Stage you will be playing against the person you have drawn – the aim is to beat their score and progress to the next round and so on until the Final in May.
- As in the proper Cup, home advantage is a big benefit.
- If you have got a “HOME” draw you can select one of the 30 games to play your “JOKER”. Indicate your selection by marking a “J” next to one of the team names on the scoresheet (e.g. Arsenal “J”)
- If you score any points on this selection they will be DOUBLED.
- The “JOKER” points DO NOT count towards L13 Winter/Spring league scores.
- In the event of a draw, the person with the most CORRECT SCORES will be deemed the winner.
- 1pt for a correct RESULT – i.e. home win, away win, draw.
- 3pts for a correct SCORE – i.e. 1-0, 0-1, 1-1, etc…
- Bonus point for every goal on a correct SCORE involving 3 or more goals EXCEPT 2-1 & 2-2. e.g. 5-0 = 9pts. (1pt for correct RESULT, 3pts for correct SCORE and 1pt for each GOAL = 5pts).
- If your scores are not submitted on time, you will automatically be given the 2-0 for every match missed.
Cheers and good luck, Pab.
