U'sual Champions League - Quarter-finals 20:08 - Mar 24 with 427 viewswessex_exile

Predictions are now open for the U'sual Champions League Quarter-finals. The qualifying groups are as follows:

Group 1
Sector4
mfb_cufc
BFG
ghughes11

Group 2
sevebalo
noah4x4
basher2010
blueeagle

The matches to predict are:
09/04/2019 Liverpool v FC Porto
09/04/2019 Spurs v Man City
10/04/2019 Alax v Juventus
10/04/2019 Man Utd v Barcelona
16/04/2019 Barcelona v Man Utd
16/04/2019 Juventus v Ajax
17/04/2019 FC Porto v Liverpool
17/04/2019 Man City v Spurs

Deadline is kick-off for any match, and they are all scheduled to start at 8pm each evening. 3pts for a spot-on result, 1pt for the outcome, and as always the result that matters will be at the end of normal time - extra-time and penalties will not count. You may only have one exact match with each one of your other group members for this 8-game round. I will monitor this and (if I can) let you know if predictions need to be amended, but just in case you or I are not online and/or you predict too close to kick-off, I suggest you keep close tabs on this yourself.

Top two in each group will qualify for the semi-finals, and recent competitions suggest that 6pts+ ought to do it. There is no first to post rule, so if a tie-break is needed, it will be predicting the attendance at the next U's game, which is currently scheduled to be the U's v Grimsby game on Good Friday (19th April). This is less than 48 hours after the Quarter-final competition closes, so watch for updates. If you want to play safe and predict the attendance now, just in case, by all means do (PM or on this thread).

You can of course amend any prediction at any time up to kick-off, and that includes the tie-break, the last prediction (however received) will be the one that counts.

Good luck everyone!

Yet here you are sir :-)

You have three exact matches with blueeagle - Ajax 1 Juventus 2, Barcelona 2 Man Utd 0 and FC Porto 0 Liverpool 1 - so you'll have to change two of them I'm afraid. Bearing in mind you have already had your one permitted exact match with basher2010 (Liverpool 2 FC Porto 0), so you can't choose 1-1, 3-0 or 1-1 respectively.

Noah has been nudged about his exact match alterations, but his predictions this week will still be okay even if he misses the kick-off deadlines. Sevebalo is the last yet to post in Group 2.

U'sual Champions League - Quarter-finals on 22:30 - Apr 10 with 215 viewswessex_exile

The whistle has blown on the four 1st leg quarter-final matches, which have finished:

Liverpool 2 FC Porto 0
Spurs 1 Man City 0
Ajax 1 Juventus 1
Man U 0 Barcelona 1

Group 1
=1} BFG.................1/1.....4pts
=1} ghughes11......1/1.....4pts
3} mfb_cufc...........0/2.....2pts
4} Sector4..............0/1.....1pt
BFG and ghughes11 have staked a strong claim for the two qualifying slots, both getting the Liverpool v FC Porto result spot-on (ghughes11 with his permitted exact match), following up with the Spurs home win (ghughes11) and Barca away win (BFG). This leaves them joint top on 4pts. In 3rd place and 2pts, mfb_cufc keeps himself in touch with the Liverpool home win and Barca away win, but sector4 with a solitary 1pt for the Liverpool home win still has a lot to do to qualify.

Group 2
1} basher2010.....3/0.....9pts
2} noah4x4..........1/0.....3pts
3} blueeagle........0/1.....1pt
4} sevebalo..........0/0.....0pts
There is no debate about the stand-out performance of this week - basher2010 scores an incredible 3 spot-ons (Liverpool v FC Porto, Ajax v Juventus, and Man U v Barca) to take an almost unassailable lead at the top of Group 2 on 9pts. Former champion noah4x4 may have little interest in the Champion's League, but he's not making a bad fist of this competition, also with the Liverpool v FC Porto result spot-on (his permitted exact match with basher2010) to be second on 3pts. To keep his qualification hopes alive, blueeagle predicted the Liverpool home win for third place on 1pt. Despite a no-show for the first legs, sevebalo is still not completely out of the running for qualification.

Just a reminder that if a tie-break decider is needed, in either group, it will be predicting the attendance at the Col U v Grimsby fixture on Good Friday. If anyone wants to get in early on that, just in case it's needed, PM me, or post here - your call.

Good luck everyone!

All good chaps, everyone now on board for the second legs.

Two reminders, the score that counts will be at the end of normal time, and for those yet to do so if a tie-break is needed it’ll be predicting the U’s v Grimsby attendance on Good Friday.

Good luck everyone!

U'sual Champions League - Quarter-finals on 22:39 - Apr 17 with 51 viewswessex_exile

After a quite remarkable score-fest, the second legs have finished as follows:
Barcelona 3 Man Utd 0 (Barcelona progress 4-0 on aggregate)
Juventus 1 Ajax 2 (Ajax progress 3-2 on aggregate)
FC Porto 1 Liverpool 4 (Liverpool smash FC Porto to go through 6-1 on aggregate)
Man City 4 Spurs 3 (a pyrrhic victory for all-conquering Man City, as Spurs go through on away goals)

As tonight's scores came through, qualification through to the U'sual Champions League semi-finals chopped and changed repeatedly, but here are the final results and qualifiers.

Group 1
BFG finishes top of the group, after three more outcomes this week (Barca home win, Liverpool away win and Man City home win), to finish on 7pts. Ghughes11 went into this week's fixtures level top with BFG, and held on to second place with the Barca home win and Man City home win. However, mfb_cufc made it a fight to the end, matching BFG's 3 outcomes to finish just 1pt behind ghughes11 on 5pts, and at one point (with Liverpool winning 1-0) was on course to qualify. Sector4 finished on 3pts, adding yesterday's Barca home win and tonight's home win for Man City.
1} BFG................1/4.....7pts
2} ghughes11.....1/3.....6pts
3} mfb_cufc........0/5.....5pts
4} Sector4...........0/3.....3pts

Group 2
Basher2010 had probably already done enough to guarantee qualification with his three spot-on results from the first legs, but amazingly added another this week (Barca 3 Man Utd 0) and the Man City home win to easily finish top of the group on a remarkable 13pts. Noah4x4 held on to second place with three outcomes this week (Barca home win, Liverpool away win and Man City home win) to finish on 6pts. Blueeagle made a very decent challenge for second place, matching noah's three outcomes this week to finish just 2pts behind on 4pts. Considering sevebalo was only scoring with half of the fixtures, finishing with 3pts for the same three outcomes this week was a highly commendable effort.
1} basher2010.....4/1.....13pts
2} noah4x4..........1/3.....6pts
3} blueeagle........0/4.....4pts
4} sevebalo..........0/3.....3pts

The semi-final draw, and of course fixtures to predict, will follow in due course, but in the meantime - congratulations to BFG, ghughes11, basher2010 and noah4x4, and of course commiserations (and my thanks for participating) to mfb_cufc, Sector4, blueeagle and sevebalo.
