* strike rate of 25% for a weekly win is probably an all-time record low for any FT tipping comp.
.
For the last round of the group stage we had two weekly winners and two wooden spooners (wwe84 has now collected three back-to-back spoons).

illiniman14 scored his first bonus point for the season, leaving just the one blank in that column: LeoDaVinci .. srini701 is still looking for his first weekly win and toocool4u & illiniman14 remain spoon-less.

Dizart retains the lead by a margin of 3 points over George95 (up from 2 points in the previous round) and the next four are covered by just 2 pts (down from 5 pts).

New highs: none
New lows : wwe84

For the first time in the history of the Champions League, 5 teams from one country have progressed from the group stage to the KO rounds: Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham, Hotspur, Liverpool and Manchester United. Four has always been a possibility for four countries: Spain, Germany, England and Italy , but five teams will only happen for one of these countries when a 5th team enters the Champions League as the previous season's winner of the Europa League (which is how Manchester United qualified).

The first time 5 teams qualified to the group stage was in 2015-16 (but all five did not progress), when Spain had five in that season's comp: Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and Valencia (the first three progressed).

The draw for KO Round will take place on Monday. As the 5 English teams won't be drawn against each other, we may see yet another record created: five of the eight quarter-finalist from one country.

We now have a mid-season winter break until mid-February 2018, when the 1st leg of the KO Round starts: UEFA ( 13 ) Tue 13th Feb.

Round 13 saw two weekly winners with 5/8 and four spoons with 3/8 .. and the rest of us all scored 4/8. Howie72 scored his second weekly win of the season .. his first was way back in wk 1, at the start of the comp. The other winner was wwe84 (to end a run of three straight wooden spoons).

illiniman14 scored his first bonus point in the previous round. He scored another one in this round (and it was the only bonus point). We still have just the one blank in that column: LeoDaVinci.

srini701 is still looking for his first weekly win and toocool4u and illiniman14 remain spoon-less.

Dizart retains the lead by a margin of 3 points over George95 (no change) and the next 3 pts cover six players (it was four players in the previous round).

New highs: none
New lows : none

A summary of our advance picks for the four semi-finalists is in the post above this one.

Round 14 saw THREE games picked by no-one and two games picked by just two players (Real winning in Paris and Juventus winning at Wembley). Each of those four picks earnt a bonus point .. for LeoDaVinci it was his first bonus point of the season, which filled the last blank in that column.

Dizart and LeoDaVinci picked Spurs to lose at home to Juventus. They're this round's winners with 4/8. Three players collected a wooden spoon each with 2/8 and the rest of us all scored 3/8.

toocool4u collected his first spoon for the season and srini701 is still looking for his first weekly win.

Dizart has now put 5 pts between himself and the rest of the field. The next 5 pts cover 10 players!

New highs: nil
New lows : N-Bomb

Manchester United, Spurs and Chelsea are all out. The five English teams are now two, Liverpool and Manchester City, and they were the last two balls in the bowl when the balls were pulled out for the quarter-finals:

Juventus v Real Madrid
Sevilla v Bayern Munich
Barcelona v AS Roma
Liverpool v Manchester City

Against all odds, the three Spanish teams somehow avoided each other in the draw for quarter-finals, as did the two Italian teams: UEFA ( 15 ) Tue 3rd April.

A summary of our advance picks for the two finalists and the winner are in the post above this one. Two players, Sypher and LeoDaVinci, lost two of their three advance picks (including the winner) when Spurs and Manchester United were eliminated.

We had a full house for the 1st leg of the quarter-finals: 16 of 16 lodged picks.

Sypher scored his second weekly win of the season (his first win was way back in Round 7). He also collected two bonus points and climbs up into fifth place, a new personal high for the season.

wwe84 collected this week's wooden spoon, to make it four spoons in six weeks.

Dizart retains the lead, with a slightly reduced margin of +3 over ozzz2002, who's put 2 points between himself and the rest of us. Behind him we have six players separated by a mere 3 pts.


New highs: Sypher
New lows : -

We have just two blanks left to fill .. srini701 is still looking for his first weekly win and illiniman14 remains spoon-less. The second legs of the quarter-finals are next week : UEFA ( 16 ) Tue 10th April.

* strike rate of 25% for a weekly win is probably an all-time record low for any FT tipping comp.
.
A round of outrageous upsets saw us end up with just 19 correct picks out of 120 lodged. Between us we averaged 15.8% which almost broke the all-time record low for the Champions League comp.

In the 15 yrs we've had this tipping comp our lowest strike rate was 13.4% some 12 years ago, in wk 13 of the 2005-06 comp. We would've smashed that all-time low if Manchester City had failed to score in the first half (11 of the 19 correct picks came from the HT result of the Manchester City game).

The two winners scored a mere 3/8 and the two wooden spoons finished with 0/8.

Dizart still leads with the same 3 point margin .. that makes it 15 consecutive wks as leader (the entire comp apart from week one). The next four players are separated by a single point.

New highs: Sypher (again), Howie72
New lows : PaulE, wwe84

There are two blanks left .. srini701 is still missing a weekly win and illiniman14 remains spoon-less.

Juventus came within a whisker of a unique recovery. No team has ever progressed after losing 0-3 at home in the 1st leg. They were leading 3-0 and looking at the game going into extra time, but conceded a penalty in injury time to go out 4-3 on aggregate.

AS Roma overcame a 4-1 loss away to Barcelona by scoring three at home without reply, which levelled the two-leg tie at 4-4. They progressed on the away goals rule. They became the third team to overcome a three-goal deficit and progress. The previous two were 15 years ago, by Deportivo, and last year, by Barcelona:

In 2003-04 Deportivo La Cortuma lost 4-1 away to AC Milan in the first leg of their quarter-final tie. Deportivo won the return leg 4-0 at home to progress 5-4 on aggregate.

Last year Barcelona overcame a FOUR-GOAL deficit to progress. They lost 4-0 away to PSG in the first leg of their KO Round tie but progressed despite conceding a goal at home in the return leg, to only lead 3-1 with just three minutes left (aka they were behind 3-5 on aggregate). Barcelona scored in the 88th and then twice in injury time to win the second leg 6-1 and complete the miracle; and progress 6-5 on aggregate. That was the only time a team has recovered from a 4-0 loss in the first leg.

The draw for the semi-finals took place in Nyon, Switzerland, at 12:00 noon local time on Friday 13th April. Liverpool, who'll be away in the 2nd leg, have avoided the big two:

Liverpool v AS Roma
Bayern Munich v Real Madrid

The first legs of the semi-finals are on UEFA ( 17 ) Tue 24th April. The elimination of Manchester City and Barcelona has ruined most of our advance picks for the final (finalists and winner). Of the 45 advance picks lodged 34 are now dead & a mere 11 are still alive and kicking. No-one has a set of three live picks and 7 of 15 have zero live.

* strike rate of 25% for a weekly win is probably an all-time record low for any FT tipping comp.
.
We had seven weekly winners with 4/8 and two wooden spoons with 2/8.

Dizart still leads the way, for the 16th consecutive week (the entire comp apart from week one). His margin has been shaved slightly to 2 pts (down from 3 pts). The next four players are now separated by 3 points (it was a single point last week).

New highs: no-one
New lows : no-one

There are two blanks left: illiniman14 remains spoon-less and srini701 is still missing a weekly win.

The elimination of Manchester City and Barcelona in the quarters ruined most of our advance picks for the final (finalists and winner). Of the 45 advance picks lodged a mere 11 are still alive and kicking. No-one has a set of three live picks and 7 of 15 have zero live. Those 11 live ones are:

Finalists:
Real Madrid dg_dave wwe84
Bayern Munich Dizart ElfTwinkle George95 Howie72 LeoDaVinci srini701
Winner:
Real Madrid wwe84
Bayern Munich ElfTwinkle Howie72

Bayern will be eliminated if Real win or draw the return leg in Madrid; and if that happens it'll kill off 8 of those 11 live picks. Liverpool were leading 5-0 with 9 minutes to go; but conceded two late goals to AS Roma. In the previous round, the quarters, AS Roma overcame a 1-4 deficit by winning 3-0 at home in the return leg. They became the third team to overcome a three-goal deficit and progress. If lightning strike twice they'll become the 4th team to achieve that feat, in the history of the Champions League.

The second legs of the semi-finals will be played next week in Madrid and Rome on UEFA ( 18 ) Tue 1st May.

* strike rate of 25% for a weekly win is probably an all-time record low for any FT tipping comp.
.
The second last round saw srini701 score his first weekly win, which filled the last blank in that column .. and he's no longer in 16th place, finally, as he climbed up into equal 14th place, a new personal high for the season. He's been anchored to the foot of the ladder since day zero.

Dizart still leads the way, for the 17th consecutive week. His margin has been shaved for the 2nd consecutive round, and now stands at a single point .. and the first three are separated by a mere 2 pts.

From there there's a gap of 2 pts to toocool4u and ozzz2002 in equal 4th place, but they can't win this as they're 4 pts behind Dizart with no live pick for the winner (they can, however, jump onto the podium alongside the gold medallist).

As Dizart has by far the best countback figures at +5, those behind him will need to pass him.

The spanner in the works is wwe84, way back in 7th place, 7 pts behind Dizart. He's the only player with a live pick for the winner and, if Real win it, he'll collect 5 pts and join Sypher in equal 3rd place. It's then a matter of who does best in the remaining three picks for the final (HT, FT and 1st goal) : UEFA ( 19 ) Sat 26th May *FINAL*.

New highs: srini701
New lows : George95, ElfTwinkle

As expected, Real Madrid and Liverpool won their semi-finals (across two legs). The final will be played later this month, in Kiev, on Sat 26th May. Real, who've won this 12 times since the first final in 1956, will be playing in their 16th final (they are the defending titleholders). Liverpool, who've won this five times, will be playing in their 8th final. Notice how only five teams will have played the last five finals:

2014   4-1   Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid
2015   3-1   Barcelona v Juventus
2016   1-1   Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid (5-3 penalties)
2017   3-1   Real Madrid v Juventus
2018   ooo   Real Madrid v Liverpool

As noted above, there's only 1 of 16 left with a live pick for the winner!

wwe84 won the final round, R19, with 7/8 (his 2nd win in the last three rounds) and climbed up the table from 7th to equal 2nd, falling one point short of catching the leader, Dizart. Back in R16 he was 10 pts in arrears in 12th place = 4th last!

Dizart retained his spot at the top of the pile for the 18th consecutive wk to win gold, He was leader for every round except the first, when he was third. Howie72 won silver on a countback from the fast-finishing wwe84 with +2 vs. -1; toocool4u and ozzz2002 dead-heated for 4th a pt further back, and Sypher finished another pt in arrears in 6th place, 3 pts behind the winner.

Back in R16 there was a 7 pt spread across the first six. In other words, Dizart won this despite an avalanche of players catching him over the last three rounds!

wwe84 had the most wins with six (same as Dizart), but also had the most wooden spoons with seven!

New highs: -
New lows : George95 (again), gtho4.

wwe84, ozzz2002 and Sypher were the only players to reach double digits in bonus points. No-one finished with zero bonus pts. The best countback figures were +5 by Dizart .. and at the other end Sypher had the biggest negative differential at -3.

Real Madrid's third consective title was
their 13th triumph since the first comp
in 1956. The last team to win 3 straight
was Bayern Munich in 1974-75-76.

This year's ECL was the 63rd edition; and
35 of them have been won by five teams:
Real Madrid, AC Milan, Liverpool, Bayern
Munich and Barcelona.

1. Dizart
2. Howie72
3. wwe84


The defending titleholder was dg_dave
(gtho4 won the silver medal & toocool4u
was third for the bronze).

Only five teams have played the last five finals .. and Real Madrid have now won four of them:

2014   4-1   Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid
2015   3-1   Barcelona v Juventus
2016   1-1   Real Madrid v Atletico Madrid (5-3 penalties)
2017   4-1   Real Madrid v Juventus
2018   3-1   Real Madrid v Liverpool

This year's comp was the 15th edition of the ECL tipping comp. No-one has retained their title, and two have now won this three times: doomed (2004, 2006 and 2008) plus Dizart this (2012, 2014 and 2018).

Congratulations to the three medallists on the podium & commiserations to the rest of us! That's it for another year.

Thank you linesmen and women, thank you ballboys and girls, and thank you everyone for playing. We now have a four month break until around mid-September, when we're back at the starting gates for the 2018-19 comp.

In the interim, we'll see most of the FAPL and ECL players in the 2018 edition of the FIFA World Cup, starting Thursday 14th June in Russia; less than three weeks away.
