U'sual Champions League - final 23:01 - May 10 with 104 viewswessex_exile

Without further ado, the semi-finals have finished as follows:

Burnsieespana......8-v-2......Colukev
Despite a spirited rearguard action from Kev with outcomes for both Juve's home and away wins, Burnsie has battered his way into the U'sual Champions League final with 8pts, courtesy of Real's home win outcome and Ronaldo's hat-trick in the first leg, Mbappe's goal last night, and in excellent form Atletico Madrid's 2-1 win spot-on tonight.

Gate16......5-v-8......MFB
Similarly, MFB's blistering form in all competitions continues, also with Real's first leg home win outcome and Ronaldo's hat-trick, backed up by Juve's first leg away win outcome plus two goals for Higuain, and Juve's home win outcome last night, for an equally impressive 8pts. Particular commiserations for Gate though, as his spot-on for Juve's 2-0 away win in the first leg, their home win outcome for the 2nd leg match yesterday, and Griezmann's goal tonight, kept matters very close right to the end with 5pts.

So, the U'sual Champions League final is between:
Burnsieespana......v......MFB

And the 3rd place match is between:
Gate16......v......Colukev


The final is Juventus v Real Madrid on Saturday 3rd June 2017 (kick-off 1945).

As usual, there are nine categories to predict, so please PM me your predictions for the following: 
(A) Result - 3pts spot-on, 1pt for the outcome; 
(B) Goal scorer - pick one, get 1pt for each goal they score (including own goals); 
(C) Attempts on target - 2pts for spot-on, 1pt if within one; 
(D) Attempts off target - ditto; 
(E) Corners - ditto; 
(F) Fouls - ditto; 
(G) Yellow cards - ditto (a straight red is not two yellows); and 
(H) Red cards - ditto (two yellows will count as two yellows and one red). 
(TB) The tie-break is the minute for the first substitution, closest (either side) wins. In the unlikely event that there are no substitutions, this will be 0 (zero) minutes.

Note that for the final alone, a spot-on result will not count towards the tie-break.

As usual, all predictions will be for the normal time match stats as provided by BBC Sport online, extra-time or penalties will not count. The only questions you can't match exactly on are (A) and (TB), so whilst there is no other advantage to predicting first, predicting last may mean having to change one or both of those predictions. Assuming I have time, I will warn anyone of this situation, but if you send your predictions too close to kick-off, I really can't guarantee I will be able to respond in time.


...and finally, as a tie-break wasn't required, I can now share your predictions for the U's v Yeovil attendance, as follows:
Actual attendance = 6,565
Burnsieespana = 7,084 (519 off)
Colukev = 5,997 (568 off)
Gate16 = 6,781 (216 - well done sir!)
MFB = 6,245 (320)
You are all to be collectively praised for this, because your average of 6,527 was just 38 off the actual attendance!
