Tipping Comp
UEFA Champions League
2015-16


The ten matches in the final qualifying round (aka the play-off round) were completed during the week. The 10 winners will join the 22 teams who were exempt until the group phase. The draw for the group phase took place yesterday. 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 2015-16. 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 15th September (the first round of the tipping comp), and 19 rounds later the Champions League Final will be played, after 8½ months, on Saturday 28th May 2016 at the San Siro in Milan, Germany. 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 Tuesday 8th December and the start of the KO Round on Tuesday 16th February 2016.

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. Please don't wait until the death, as this year's comp will be spread across seven time zones as FC Astana from Kazakhstan has qualified, for the group stage, for the first time (see next post), and there's a good chance you'll get it wrong! If you post your tips 6 hours before the scheduled kick-off time for games in the UK, you should be safe. If you lodge your picks late you score default for that round.
    .Previous winners & medallists:
     
    2003-04 : doomed gtho4 manvinder01\fringe
    2004-05 : gtho4 Sypher ElfTwinkle
    2005-06 : doomed Sypher ElfTwinkle
    2006-07 : ElfTwinkle srini701 Howie72
    2007-08 : doomed Sypher Howie72

    2013-14 : Dizart gtho4 KrivoyRog
    2014-15 : paper_aero illiniman14 PaulE
    .
We have had multiple winners of this comp, but no-one has won it back-to-back to successfully defend their UEFA title .. Dizart won it last year from gtho4. Everyone collected a spoon so we have no spoonless streaks carried-over into this year's tipping comp. Who's up for the 13th edition (good grief) of the UEFA Champions League tipping comp?

The 32 teams in this year's comp:
    22 teams qualified direct to the group stage (see list below in the
    white square). They didn't participate in any of the four preliminary
    rounds .. three qualifying rounds plus the play-off round.

    13 champions from countries ranked 1–13
    6 runners-up from countries 1–6
    3 third-placed teams from countries 1–3
     1  SPAIN        Barcelona           Real Madrid        Atletico Madrid    Sevilla
    2 ENGLAND Chelsea Manchester City Arsenal
    3 GERMANY Bayern Munich Wolfsburg B Monchengladbach
    4 ITALY Juventus AS Roma
    5 PORTUGAL Benfica FC Porto
    6 FRANCE Paris St Germain Olympique Lyonnais
    7 RUSSIA Zenit St Petersburg
    8 NETHERLANDS PSV Eindhoven
    9 UKRAINE Dynamo Kiev
    10 BELGIUM KAA Ghent
    10 TURKEY Galatasary
    12 GREECE Olympiakos Piraeus
    13 SWITZERLAND pushed back to 3rd qualifying round

    Sevilla qualified as they won the Europa League and were given the spot reserved for the Champions League winners,
    Barcelona, as Barcelona had qualified in any event as domestic champions. The rule re a maximum of 4 teams from one
    country has been abandoned, to accommodate this new rule re the EL winner auto-qualifying for the Champions League.
    When the defending titleholders fail to qualify through their domestic league, the EL winner is placed in the play-off
    round (not direct into the group stage).
    Valencia   
    Manchester United
    Bayer Leverkeusen
    Lazio
    Sporting Lisbon


    CSKA Moscow

    Shakhtar Donetesk





    The five teams at the
    top qualify direct
    to the play-off round.
    17  ISRAEL       Maccabi Tel Aviv 
    20 CROATIA Dynamo Zagreb
    22 BELARUS BATE Borisov
    24 SWEDEN Malmo FF
    34 KAZAKHSTAN Astana
The remaining ten spots (the ones outside the white square) were filled from the 15 teams that made it through
the three qualifying rounds, and the five teams that auto-qualified for the play-off round. The five auto-qualifiers
are listed near the top RH corner of this post :
    Play-off Round to determine final 10 spots in group stage:
    (1st leg) home team v away team   1st leg  2nd leg   country     country
    Astana v APOEL Nicosia 1-0 1-1 KAZAKHSTAN CYPRUS
    KF Skederbeu Korce v Dynamo Zagreb 1-2 1-4 ALBANIA CROATIA
    Glasgow Celtic v Malmo FF 3-2 0-2 SCOTLAND SWEDEN
    FC Basel v Maccabi Tel Aviv 2-2 1-1 SWITZERLANS ISRAEL
    BATE Borisov v Partisan Belgrade 1-0 1-2 BELARUS SERBIA
    Lazio v Bayer Leverkusen 1-0 0-3 ITALY GERMANY

Last year's comp saw everyone from the year before back for another dose except for KrivoyRog. We had two new recruits, Lpez and acilarincocugu, which made it a field of 17 runners (up one from the previous year's 16 runners).

This year we have four no-shows and three newbies giving us a field of 16 runners for this year's Champions League tipping comp. The four no-shows are: acilarincocugu, BxBarracuda, Lpez and LeoDaVinci. The three newbies are: KrivoyRog (back after missing one season), ElfTwinkle (back after five seasons away) and toocool4u. Welcome aboard or welcome back, as the case may be!

Week 1 of 19 saw two of the eight games picked by everyone and two games were upset wins picked by no-one (and there were no draws). Eight of us scored a weekly win with picks of 6/8 (that's almost half the field).

ElfTwinkle scored a bonus point with *both* of her other two picks, which were draws (no-one picked the two upset wins), to jump to an early lead. At the other end, ozzz2002 collected the first wooden spoon on offer with picks of 2/8. His two were the two games picked by everyone.

The two upset wins yielded 11 bonus points for those of us who picked a draw. As noted in the previous paragraph, ElfTwinkle collected two of them!

The next round starts in a few hours. Let's see how many of those eight games end up in an upset win and ruin our picks.

The field has increased to 17 runners. LeoDaVinci missed Round One but is back for another dose.

We had four weekly winners with 5/8, five spoons with 3/8 and the rest of us all scored 4/8. We now have the first 10 runners separated by a mere 2 points. The rest of the field is separated by 3 pts.

There were three upsets in Round 2, hence the 5/8 weekly win score. Barcelona were held to a draw by AS Roma. All of us went for the Barca win, except one .. illiniman14 went for a draw and collected a bonus point for that effort. Check out the goal scored by AS Roma .. it could be the goal of the season.

ozzz2002 was the only person to pick the Arsenal loss away to Zagreb .. dg_dave & KrivoyRog picked Valencia to lose at home!
The next round is at the end of the month: UEFA ( 3 ) Tue 29th Sep.

* strike rate of 25% for a weekly win is probably an all-time record low for any FT tipping comp.

.
As was the case in the previous round, the weekly winners again scored 5/8 and the wooden spooner again scored 3/8. We had four winners and four spoons .. and the rest of us all scored 4/8.

There were again three upsets, hence the 5/8 weekly win score. AS Roma lost away. All of us went for the AS Roma win, except one .. dg_dave went for a draw and collected a bonus point for that effort. Arsenal lost at home; all of us picked Arsenal to win except two who went for a draw and collected a bonus point .. ElfTwinkle and KrivoyRog. The win by Valencia away in Lyon bore fruit for toocool4u .. he was the only person to pick this.

ElfTwinkle continues to lead the way .. she's been there since day zero, when the starter fired his gun. The next ten players are separated by a mere 2 pts and, yes, that's more than half the field.

The next round UEFA ( 4 ) Wed 30th Sep is less than 24 hours away, which is tomorrow, wherever you are.

.
paper_aero almost picked the card with 7/8 (he missed the loss at home by Atletico Madrid). He jumps into the lead replacing ElfTwinkle, who collected the wooden spoon.

The spread between 1st and 11th is now a mere 2 points .. and 2 pts covers the rest of us except for LeoDaVinci, who's bringing up the rear.

wwe84 scored a bonus point for picking Atletico to lose at home to Benfica. No-one else saw this in their tea leaves .. ditto their crystal ball.

That's 4 of 19 rounds done and dusted. The next round is later this month: UEFA ( 5 ) Tue 20th Oct.

.
Apart from KrivoyRog, who scored, default, the first seven from last week all scored 5/8. KrivoyRog tumbles from 2nd to 7th.

George95 scores his 2nd weekly win in three. He almost picked the card with 7/8 (he missed the upset win by Arsenal at home against Bayern Munich) .. wwe84 and his spoon went the other way, from 4th all the way down to 14th.

New highs: N-Bomb, gtho4 George95 and ozzz2002.
New lows: KrivoyRog, wwe84, Dizart and Sypher.

The spread last week between 1st and 11th was a mere 2 pts .. and 2 points covered the rest of us except for LeoDaVinci. This week 2 pts cover the first six and 2 points again cover the rest of the field except for LeoDaVinci, who is still bringing up the rear. No-one kept their spot from last wk, apart from the first two and the tail-ender.

ozzz2002 scored a bonus point for picking Arsenal to win at home against Bayern. No-one else saw this one coming, not even N-Bomb. The next round is tomorrow or, for some of us, later today: UEFA ( 6 ) Wed 21st Oct .

This week it's a spread of 7 points across the entire field apart from LeoDaVinci, who's still bringing up the rear but slowly clawing back the deficit. He reduced the gap to the rest of the field from 5 pts to 4 pts.

Dizart was the only one who kept his or her spot from last week (excluding the leader and tail-ender). It was musical chairs for the rest of us.

New highs: ozzz2002 and gtho4.
New lows: toocool4u, KrivoyRog and wwe84.

There were four games were the number of common picks were in double digits (the last four games in the list). We hit pay dirt with two and struck out on the other two, which generated the two bonus pts for solo picks.

Last week 2 pts covered the first 11 runners. This week 2 points only cover the first five.

We're now half-way through the group stage. The next round is a fortnight away: UEFA ( 7 ) Tue 3rd Nov.

There were six games were the number of common picks were in double digits.

.
This week's wooden spoon goes to Sypher with picks of 2/12 which means wwe84, with 3/12, avoids his 5th straight spoon.

ozzz2002 and gtho4 are this round's winners with 6/12 .. it was the first win of the season for ozzz2002 (which leaves wwe84 & LeoDaVinci as the only players without a weekly win).

ozzz2002 also collected 2 bonus pts .. he now has six of them. ElfTwinkle is next with 5 bonus points for the season. N-Bomb Dizart, Sypher and LeoDaVinci are still looking for their first.

gtho4 has skipped away to a 2 point lead .. and the next 3 pts cover seven players. From there there's another 2 point gap to four players, who are also separated by 3 pts.

For the previous two rounds a mere six points covered the first 11 players. The spread across the first eleven is now seven pts.

New highs: PaulE (again) & LeoDaVinci.
New personal lows: toocool4u & Sypher.

There were six games were the number of common picks were in double digits. We hit pay dirt with four and struck out with the FC Porto game (home loss was a solo pick by ozzz2002) and the Lyonnais game (home loss picked by no-one), which generated a bonus point for the four who picked a draw.
