Tipping Comp
UEFA Champions League
2018-19


The six matches in the final qualifying round (aka the play-off round) were completed last week. The six winners joined the 26 teams who were exempt until the group phase. The draw for the group phase took place on Friday 31st August. If you've got a few hours to kill and/or have an insomnia attack and can't hit the sack, you can read the complete details of the qualifying rounds and the exemption procedures here : Regulations of the UEFA Champions League 2018-19. Most of the 32 teams in this year's comp are familiar names, but there maybe a few qualifiers whose team names will be alien to most of us (see next post).

The group stage commences on Tuesday 18th September (the first round of the tipping comp), and 19 rounds later the UEFA Champions League Final will be played, after almost 8½ months, on Saturday 1st June 2019 at the Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid, Spain [the home ground of Atletico Madrid]. There's a two month mid-winter break, for all of us to grab some R&R, between the last round of the group phase on Wednesday 12th December and the start of the KO Round on Tuesday 12th February 2019.

Rules: they're the same as last year, and the year before. The rules for this comp are simple:
    points
    default

    full-time

    upsets

    perfect picks
    other bonus pts


    dead-heats
    one point for each correct pick.
    if you forget to pick, the away teams are all yours (ineligible for bonus pts),
    however, you receive the WS score if it's more than the aways.
    picks are H-x-A at full-time; extra time and shootout lotteries are ignored.
    if you pick a game solo, you score a bonus point ... or 1 of 2 if we have 12
    or more runners, 1 of 3 if we have 18 or more runners.
    8/8 scores a bonus point. You also receive a knighthood from Her Majesty.
    no one picks a win, whoever picks a draw.
    no one picks a draw, whoever picks the upset win.
    if you pick all home teams (or all bar one), you're ineligible for bonus pts.
    weekly wins vs. wooden spoon countback determine podium finishes;
    if they're identical, bonus points will be used.
Deadline: is always kick-off in the first game of the round, at either 5:55pm or 8:00pm UK time. Please note that all kick-off times in all tipping threads are UK time. UEFA have created two kick-off times for the 2018-19 comp, presumably for revenue reasons re TV broadcast rights (previously all games started at 7:45pm local time). In other words, the deadline is now almost two hours earlier than last year. If you lodge your picks after the start of the first game, or fail to lodge, you score default for that round.

This year's Champions League has 26 teams qualifying direct to the Group Stage of 32 teams [previously 22 of the 32 were direct qualifiers]. UEFA have changed the qualification rules and routes for their so-called 2018-2021 Cycle.

Once again a total of 79 teams, from the 55 UEFA member nations, qualified for this year's competition (no team from Leichenstein*) .. 26 direct to the group stage (inside the white rectangle below) and two to the play-off round (countries #12 and #13) .. 10 of the other 51 teams progressed through the four qualifying rounds, to join the two who qualified direct to the six play-off round games. Those 12 teams are the ones outside the white rectangle.
In prior years 22 teams went direct to the group stage and five to the play-off round, with 15 of the other 52 teams progressing through three qualifying rounds, to join those five who qualified direct to the ten play-off round games (aka there were 20 teams are outside the white rectangle).
     The 32 teams in this year's group stage are:
     11 champions from countries ranked 1–11   previously 1-13
       6 runners-up from countries 1–6
       5 third-placed teams from countries 1–5    previously 1-3
       4 fourth-placed teams from countries 1-4   previously zero
       6 the six survivors from the play-off round previously ten

    26 teams qualified direct to the group stage (inside the white rectangle). They bypass all five preliminary rounds .. the four qualifying rounds plus the play-off round.
     1  SPAIN        Barcelona           Atletico Madrid    Real Madrid        Valencia
    2 GERMANY Bayern Munich Schalke 04 Hoffenheim Borussia Dortmund
    3 ENGLAND Manchester City Manchester United Tottenham Hotspur Liverpool
    4 ITALY Juventus Napoli AS Roma Internazionale
    5 FRANCE Paris St Germain AS Monaco Olympique Lyon
    6 RUSSIA Locomotiv Moscow CSKA Moscow
    7 PORTUGAL FC Porto
    8 UKRAINE Shakhtar Donetsk
    9 BELGIUM Club Brugge
    10 TURKEY Galatasara
    11 CZECH REPUBL Viktoria Plezn

    The defending titleholders and the Europa League winners are now guaranteed a spot in the Group Stage. Accordingly, the champions
    of country #11 were placed into the Group Stage instead of the Play-Off Round (being Real's spot, as defending titleholders, as they had
    already qualified through their domestic league) and the 3rd placed team in country #5 were placed into the Group Stage instead of the
    3rd Qualifying (being Atletico's spot, the EL winners, as they had already qualified through their domestic league).
      





    Benfica
    Dynamo Kiev





    12  SWITZERLAND  BSC Young Boys
    13 NETHERLANDS PSV Eindhoven Ajax Amsterdam
    14 GREECE AEK Athens PAOK Salonika
    15 AUSTRIA FC Salzburg
    16 CROATIA Dinamo Zagreb
    17 ROMANIA
    18 DENMARK
    19 BELARUS BATE Borisov
    20 POLAND
    21 SWEDEN
    22 ISRAEL
    23 SCOTLAND
    24 CYPRUS
    25 NORWAY
    26 AZERBAIJAN
    27 BULGARIA
    28 SERBIA Red Star Belgrade
    29 KAZAKHSTAN
    30 SLOVENIA
    33 HUNGARY MOL Vidi
    The remaining six spots (the ones outside the white square) were filled from the 12 teams in the play-off round, being the 10 of 52 teams
    that made it through the four qualifying rounds, and the two teams that auto-qualified for the play-off round (countries ranked 12 and 13).
* the seven teams in Leichenstein play in the Swiss national league. The winners of the Leichenstwen Cup qualify for the Europa League. No team from Leichenstein has qualified to play in the Champions League through either route.

Two years ago we had a field of 18 runners. Last year we had 16runners (two no shows). This year we're down to a field of 13 with three no shows: ElfTwinkle, illiniman14 and LeoDaVinci. In other words, we had snared zero newbies for the 2nd straight year. The field in this year's comp, the 16th, equals the all-time low of 13 runners set nine years ago in season 2009-10:

Round 1 of 19 saw just one of the eight games picked by 12 of 12, aka everyone .. and all of us hit pay dirt. Two games were picked by 11 of 12 and another by 10 of 12, which gave us four weekly winners with 6/8. At the other end we had three wooden spoons with picks of 4/8: George95, PaulE & wwe84 ... and the rest of us, 5 of 12, all scored 5/8.

Two of the weekly winners, N-Bomb and wwe84, scored a bonus point each for picking Internazionale to beat Spurs. They share the lead, a point in front of the other two weekly winners. Inter left it late: they fell behind in the 53rd, equalised with five to go and then scored the winner in the 2nd minute of stoppage time.

dg_dave and wwe84 collected a bonus point each for picking the draw in Belgrade, where Red Star held the more-fancied Napoli to a 0-0 stalemate. Some interesting match stats: possession finished 27% v 73% and shots were 6 v 20!

The next round will be played in your neck of the woods either this afternoon or tonight or tomorrow morning, as the case may be: UEFA ( 2 ) Wed 19th Sep.

We no longer have an all-time low. ElfTwinkle has returned from a weekend away in the Bahamas and we now have a field of 14 runners.

Round 2 saw two of the eight games picked by everyone and all of us hit pay dirt with both. One game was picked by 13 of 14 and two by 11 of 14 which, again, gave us gave us four weekly winners with 6/8. Two of the four scored back-to-back weekly wins: paper_aero and gtho4. Sypher and ElfTwinkle were the other weekly winners.

Nobody picked the loss at home by Manchester City .. wwe84 and ElfTwinkle scored a bonus point as they picked a draw.

The first seven (which is half the field) are separated by 2 pts and the next 2 points cover the rest of the field except for the tail-ender toocool4u, who collected this week's wooden spoon.

Four of the eight games were picked by everyone and we hit pay dirt with two and missed two! One game was picked by 12 of 14 and those three were the only games picked by seven of us. We each collected a wooden spoon with 3/8.

George95 and dg_dave were this round's winners with 5/8. They were the only players to pick the draw in Lyon.

We now have a four-way tie out front. The first eight (which is half the field) are separated by a single point!

The next round will be played in your neck of the woods either this afternoon or tonight or tomorrow morning, as the case may be: UEFA ( 4 ) Wed 3rd Oct.

.
There were four winners, the three out front plus PaulE, and four wooden spooners.

Napoli's late goal at the death against Liverpool took away a pt from the five who picked a draw. They received a bonus pt each as a consolation prize as no-one picked Napoli to win. That late goal gave us four winners instead of one (PaulE), which may be decisive at the finish post if we're pushed into countbacks for the medals.

Last week's four-way tie out front is now a three-way tie.

A mere 2 pts separate the first eight, which is half the field (last week they were separated by a single point). The next two pts separate the rest of the field apart from the tail-ender i.e. this comp is still a close contest, as there's no runaway.

.
Just the one weekly winner, Howie72 with a perfect 8/8 which, with a bonus point for a perfect pick, sees him fly up the table from 12th (his lowest this season) all the way up to 3rd, a new personal high.

That was the only bonus point this round; and there were just two wooden spoons with 4/8 .. a strike rate of 50%! We came within a whisker of having a wooden spoon score of 5/8, which would've set a new all-time high spoon score for this comp.

Between us we averaged a strike rate of 72.1%, which is the 3rd highest-ever in this comp. The all-time record is 78.9% set in wk 16 in 2011-12 and 78.5% in wk 2 of the 2005-06 comp. This year's comp is the 16th edition, which means it's the 3rd highest in about 289 tipping rounds!

Hoffenheim's late goal at the death against Olympique Lyonnais (they equalised in the 2nd min of stoppage time), took away a pt from the four who picked Lyon to win away: dg_dave, PaulE, Sypher and toocool4u. Manchester United's domestic form has carried over into Europe. They lost at home .. 7 of 13 picked this result. Valencia were held to a draw in Switzerland .. Howie72, who was perfect, plus two others picked this upset: ElfTwinkle and wwe84.

New highs: George95, ElfTwinkle, Howie72.
New lows : Sypher, srini701, LeoDaVinci.

The four-way tie out front two rounds back, which became a three-way tie last round, has now disappeared. The first three now occupy each rung on the ladder solo. The peloton of eight, which is half the field, is separated by a mere pt (it was three in the previous round).

yep,
it was in the original draft as Sir Howie, and then I removed it from the final version!

.
This comp continues to be a close fought contest. Last round we had the first five separated by 3 points. They're now separated by a single solitary point .. gtho4 is joined out front by N-Bomb and Sir Howie72. The three leaders are from the South Pacific, on either side of the Tasman Sea! Dizart and paper_aero are tied for 4th a point in arrears.

From there the next four runners are also separated by a single point .. aka the first nine are separated by a mere three points!

There were four weekly winners. LeoDaVinci scored his first win to leave three still looking for their first after six rounds. Two players are still spoon-less: N-Bomb and srini701 (who has no wins, no spoons and no bonus points).

Sir Howie72 was the only player to score a bonus point, as he picked PSV v Spurs to end in a draw. PSV equalised in the 87th after Spurs were reduced to ten men in the 79th.

New highs: Sir Howie72
New lows : wwe84

The four-way tie out front three rounds back, which became a three-way tie two rounds ago, disappeared in the previous round. We're now back to a three-way tie.

* strike rate of 25% for a weekly win is probably an all-time record low for any FT tipping comp.
.
The three-way tie out front has evaporated. N-Bomb has skipped away to a 2 pt lead, the biggest all season.

The last round saw the first five separated by a single solitary point; this is now out to 3 points. From there the remainder of the field (apart from the tail-ender) is also separated by 3 pts. The leader and tail-ender, plus ElfTwinkle, are the only ones to retain his or her spot from the previous round. The rest of us played musical chairs.

There were three weekly winners .. toocool4u scored his first win to leave just two still win-less after seven rounds. Two players are still spoon-less: N-Bomb and srini701 (who has no wins, no spoons and no bonus points).

N-Bomb was the only player to score a bonus point, as he somehow picked Monaco to lose at home to Clubbe Brugge (actually, they were flogged). The reverse fixture in Belgium, played last month, was a draw!

New highs: PaulE
New lows : George95

The next round will be played tonight (lunchtime if you're in North America or tomorrow morning if you're downunder).

* strike rate of 25% for a weekly win is probably an all-time record low for any FT tipping comp.
.
We had three weekly winners: paper_aero scored 4th for the season (two of those four wins were in the last three rounds); LeoDaVinci scored his second for the season (both of them in the last three rounds); and ElfTwinkle also scored her second for the season (her first was back in Round 2).

No one has more weekly wins than paper-aero.

wwe84 collected the wooden spoon (his 2nd in three rounds). No one has more spoons than wwe84.

N-Bomb retains his 2 pt margin out front. The first five are still separated by 3 points and from there the remainder of the field (apart from the tail-ender) are separated by 4 points (it was a 3 point spread in the previous round) .

There were no bonus pts for solo picks. No-one picked Juventus to lose at home to Manchester United .. five players received for a bonus point for picking a draw.

New highs: LeoDaVinci
New lows : gtho4, wwe84

srini701 still has zero win, zero spoons and zero bonus points.

ozzz2002 scores his first weekly win with a stupendous 7/8 .. he picked the entire card apart from the upset in Moscow. It leaves two blanks in that column: wwe84 and srini701.

srini701 collected his first wooden spoon for the season, to leave one blank in that column: N-Bomb.

N-Bomb retains the lead despite going on holidays & forgetting to lodge picks. He was last seen in The Bahamas, lying under a palm tree.

There were no bonus points for solo picks. No-one picked CSKA Moscow to lose at home to the Czech team Vicktoria, from the city of Plezn .... dg_dave received for a bonus point for picking a draw. We still have two blanks in that column: paper_aero & srini701.

The first five are now separated by 3 pts .. and the next 3 pts separate the rest of the field, apart from the two tail-enders.

New highs: nobody
New lows : gtho4, wwe84 (again), srini701

The next round will be played tonight, this afternoon if you are in North America, after midnight in India and at breakfast time tomorrow morning downunder.

We had three winners .. srini701 scored his first for the season, leaving wwe84 as the only player still looking for a win .. wwe84 collected his 4th wooden spoon for the season (his third in five weeks).

N-Bomb, the only spoon-less player, has skipped away to the biggest lead all season. He's now 3 points ahead the peloton. The next 5 points cover the rest of the field (12 players) apart from the two tail-enders. wwe84 and ozzz2002.

Once again there were no bonus points for solo picks. We still have two blanks in that column: paper_aero and srini701.

New highs: nobody
New lows : wwe84 (again), dg_dave

That completes Match Day 5. Even though there's one more game left in the group stage, the usual suspects have already qualified for the KO rounds: Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Barcelona, Porto, Schalke 04, Bayern Munich, Ajax, Manchester City, Real Madrid, AS Roma, Juventus and Manchester United. The four who'll join these 12 will be decided in the last round: UEFA ( 11 ) Tue 11th Dec.
