Tipping Comp
UEFA Champions League
2016-17


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 2016-17. 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 13th September (the first round of the tipping comp), and 19 rounds later the UEFA Champions League Final will be played, after 8˝ months, on Saturday 3rd June 2017 at the Millenium Stadium in Cardiff (Wales UK). 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 6th December and the start of the KO Round on Tuesday 14th February 2017.

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 has two teams from eastern Europe - Russia and the Ukraine (see next post), and there's a good chance you'll get it wrong! If you post your tips 3 hours before the scheduled kick-off time for games in the UK, you should be safe. If that one game has kicked-off when you lodge your picks, you will score zero for that game. 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
    2008-09 : ozzz2002 Howie72 LeoDaVinci

    2014-15 : paper_aero illiniman14 PaulE
    2015-16 : PaulE George95 ozzz2002
    .
We have had multiple winners of this comp, but no-one has won it back-to-back to successfully defend their UEFA title .. PaulE won it last year from George95. Everyone collected a spoon so we have no spoonless streaks carried-over into this year's tipping comp. Who's up for the 14th edition of the UEFA Champions League tipping comp?

A total of 78 teams qualified for this year's competition .. 15 of 41 teams progressed through the qualifying rounds
to join the five teams who qualified direct to the ten play-off round games. The 32 teams in this year's group stage:
    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        Real Madrid         Barcelona          Atletico Madrid    Sevilla
    2 ENGLAND Leicester City Arsenal Tottenham Hotspur
    3 GERMANY Bayern Munich Borussia Dortmund Bayer Leverkusen
    4 ITALY Juventus Napoli
    5 PORTUGAL Benfica Sporting Lisbon
    6 FRANCE Paris St Germain Olympique Lyonnais
    7 RUSSIA CSKA Moscow
    8 UKRAINE Dynamo Kiev
    9 NETHERLANDS PSV Eindhoven
    10 BELGIUM Club Brugge
    11 SWITZERLAND FC Basel
    12 TURKEY Besiktas
    13 GREECE pushed back to 3rd qualifying round

    Real Madrid are the defending titleholders. Sevilla qualified as they won the Europa League (the EL winners are given the spot
    reserved for the Champions League winners, if they already qualify in any event through their domestic competition). This new
    rule re the EL winner auto-qualifying for the Champions League was introduced in 2015-16. 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).
    Villareal
    Manchester City
    B Monchengladbach
    AS Roma
    FC Porto
    AS Monaco
    FC Rostov

    Ajax Amsterdam
    Young Boys





    The five teams at the
    top qualified direct to
    the play-off round.

    14 CZECH REP Viktoria Plzen
    15 ROMANIA Steau Bucharest
    16 AUSTRIA FC Salzburg
    17 CROATIA Dynamo Zagreb
    18 CYPRUS Apoel Nicosia
    19 POLAND Legia Warsaw
    20 ISRAEL Hapoel Beersheba
    22 DENMARK FC Copenhagen
    23 SCOTLAND Glasgow Celtic
    25 BULGARIA Ludogorets Razgrad
    40 IRELAND Dundalk
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.

Everyone from last year is back for another dose except for the no-show KrivoyRog. We have two new recruits, AlonsoKing and nasty_liar, to make it a field of 18 runners, which is up one from the previous year's 17 runners. Welcome aboard!

Week 1 of 19 saw one of the eight games picked by everyone and one game picked by no-one. The 7-0 thumping of Celtic by Barcelona was picked by everyone except N-Bomb, who was the lone ranger by picking an upset away win.

PaulE and wwe84 scored a bonus point each for picking the upset draw in Switzerland. They join the two weekly winners, gtho4 and toocool4u, to make it a four-way tie out front.

At the other end, Dizart collected the first wooden spoon on offer with picks of 3/8.

The next round has started & finished, as the Manchester City game was rescheduled to today due to a water-logged pitch.

dg_dave picks 5/8 for the weekly win (it was a solo effort), to climb up into equal 2nd place behind wwe84, who retains his spot at the top of the pile. He didn't participate in our game of musical chairs; he was the only player to retain his spot from the previous round.

The first seven spots are separated by two pts, and the remaining 11 players are also separated by two points.

Borussia Dortmund thumped Legia Warsaw 6-0. Everyone picked this except for AlonsoKing. However, he was the only one to pick Spurs to lose, at home.

Spurs are playing their home games in the Champions League at Wembley Stadium as the capacity of their home ground at White Hart Lane has been reduced while they build a new stadium. The attendance of 85,011 set a new English record for a home game.

Meanwhile, the Leicester City fairytale continues. They won 3-0 in Belgium, in their first-ever Champions League game.

.
paper_aero picked 7/8 for the weekly win (he picked the lot except for the win by Spurs away in Moscow), to climb up seven places from 12th to 5th .. and ten players all scored 6/8!

Every game was picked by 7 or more players, which meant there were no bonus points, not one.

nasty_liar collects the wooden spoon with 2/8 (he picked the wins by Sporting and Copenhagen), and tumbles down the table from 6th all the way down to 17th.

No-one kept their spot from the previous round, not one. It was a full-blown edition of musical chairs.

The first eight spots are separated by a mere two pts (same as last round), and the rest of the field is separated by 3 pts (it was 2 pts last round).

* strike rate of 25% for a weekly win is probably an all-time record low for any FT tipping comp.
.
This tipping comp is in its 14th year (the first was back in 2003-04) and, for just the 10th time, we have an 8/8 .. wwe84 has picked a perfect 8/8 to earn himself a perfect pick bonus point. However, two of those 8 correct picks were outrageous upsets, which only he picked! So it's not simply a bs for wwe84 in the standings, it's a bss with a double emphasis on the s.

Next best was 6/8 by Alsonso King, then a truckload of players with 5/8 and 4/8 correct.

wwe84 returns to the lead, but he now has a whopper of a margin at 5 pts. The next seven are separated by a single point.

There were no bonus pts last round, and it's the same this round, none .. apart from the three collected by Mr Perfect.

The first eight spots are now separated by 7 pts (it was a mere 2 pts in the previous round; and the one before that) .. and the rest of the field is separated by 4 pts (up from 3 pts in the previous round and 2 pts in the one before that).

* strike rate of 25% for a weekly win is probably an all-time record low for any FT tipping comp.
.
This tipping comp is in its 14th year (the first was back in 2003-04) and in the previous round, for just the 11th time, we had wwe84 go perfect with an 8/8. The 5th Round sees yet another perfect pick, this one by gtho4, who joins wwe84 for a share of the lead. That makes it 12 perfects in 14 seasons, with the last two back-to-back. The wooden spoon was collected by wwe84.

Next best was 7/8 by four players: paper_aero (missed the Spurs draw), PaulE (ditto), Sypher (ditto) and toocool4u (missed the win by Juventus), then a truckload of players with 6/8 and 5/8 correct. Between us we had an average strike rate of 70.8% .. which has been exceed just four times over the last 14 seasons (see Record Book below).

The seven players behind the two leaders are separated by 4 points (last week the seven players behind wwe84 were separated by just one point). As was the case in the previous round, the only bonus points or point scored were scored by the weekly winner.

New high: nobody:
New lows: toocool4u, Howie72 and srini701.

The fairytale at Leicester City continues. They have now won their first three CL matches in their debut appearance. Can they emulate the efforts of Nottingham Forest in 1979? In their debut appearance, Forest went on to be crowned European Champions. They retained their title a year later to achieve this unique feat (and it's still unique 37 yrs later): they won more European Champions titles (two) than domestic titles (one).


Edited by gtho4 (Wed Oct 19 2016 10:22 PM)
Edit Reason: 2016 - 1979 = 37 not 27 .. it's a longer long time ago!

I believe 1979 was 37 years ago...my girlfriend was born in 1979 and she's a lot older than 27!

.
We had four weekly winners this round. For all of them it was their first for the season .. and each of them scored their first bonus point for the season.

This filled 8 more blanks, leaving LeoDaVinci as the only player without a weekly win, wooden spoon or bonus point .. wwe84 collected back-to-back wooden spoons.

Two games were picked by all of us. We hit pay dirt with Arsenal but missed the loss at home by Napoli to Besiktas.

fixed,
somehow the copy and paste one line downwards was done backwards, which is physically impossible ..

srini701 scores a humungous 7/8 to make it back-to back weekly wins. He climbs up into fourth place, a new personal high for the season. He picked the entire card apart from the upset away draw by Celtic.

There were four bonus points handed out. LeoDaVinci collected his first with an outrageous pick of an away draw by Celtic at Monchengladbach, who had beaten Celtic 2-0 away a fortnight ago.

His first bonus pugged another hole in that column and reduced the number of blanks to five: toocool4u, paper_aero, Howie72, Sypher and ozzz2002. His first bonus also means that no-one has three blanks in all three columns.

New high: srini701
New low : ElfTwinkle, AlonsoKing

Two games were picked by all of us and another two by all bar one. The next round starts in a bit under seven hours.

.
Three games were picked by no-one, leaving us with three weekly winners who picked the rest with scores of 5/8 .. at the other end, ozzz2002 collects the sole wooden spoon with pick of 1/8 .. his sole correct pick was the home win by FC Porto.

In the previous round, LeoDaVinci scored his first bonus point. In this round he scores his first weekly win, which plugs another hole in that column,

There were 5 bonus pts handed out, for those of us who picked a draw Spurs v Bayer .. no-one picked the upset away win by Bayer Leverkusen. Howie72 scored his first bonus point, which plugged yet another hole & reduced the number of blanks in that column to four: toocool4u (2nd place), paper_aero (5th), Sypher (15th) and ozzz2002 (the tail-ender).

gtho4 retains the lead with a 3 point margin .. the next 9 players from 2nd to 10th are separated by 4 pts (down from 6 pts in the previous round).

New high: LeoDaVinci
New low : ElfTwinkle (again), AlonsoKing (again)

That completes 4 of 6 group matches. Five teams have already qualified for the KO rounds: Arsenal & PSG (Group A), Atletico & Bayern (Group D) and Dortmund (Group F). The last two group matches will decide the other 11 teams to progress.

The following seven teams cannot progress. The best they can do is finish 3rd, to qualify for the Europa League (the 4th team in each group is eliminated): Basel & Ludogorets (Group A), PSV & Rostov (Group D), Legia (Group F), Club Brugge (Group G) and Dynamo Zagreb (Group H).

* strike rate of 25% for a weekly win is probably an all-time record low for any FT tipping comp.
.
This tipping comp is in its 14th year (the first was back in 2003-04) and, during those 13 years we had just ten occurrences of a perfect pick 8/8. Last month we had two perfects .. and this week we have yet another one!

The 13th was achieved this week by PaulE, who swept all before him with a perfect 8/8 to earn himself a perfect round bonus point. However, one of those 8 correct picks was a solo pick .. so, with a grand total of 10 points in his satchel, he went up the ladder from 7th place, 7 pts behind the leader, all the way to 2nd place; and is now just a point behind. It was his first weekly win of the season, which plugged another blank in that column.

The other bonus points for solo picks in the CSKA match went to AklonsoKing (he climbed up two places) and ElfTwinkle, who went up 5 places (same as PaulE). Four players are still looking for their first bonus point: toocool4 (3rd), paper_aero (equal 4th), Sypher (3rd last) and ozzz2002 (the tail-ender).

Position 1 to 10 are now separated by just six points (down from 8 pts in the previous round and the one before that).

New high: no-one
New low : wwe84 & dg_dave

Spurs, who are still undefeated in the FAPL, lost for the 3rd time and cannot progress, no matter what happens in their last group match at home to CSKA (a draw or a win will see them finish 3rd and earn the consolation prize of a place in the next round of the Europa League.

Leicester won again and will finish top of their group, no matter what happens in their last match, which means they will avoid a group winner when the draw for the KO Round (mid-Feb 2017) takes place next month on 12th December.

The next round starts in a little over 12 hours: UEFA ( 10 ) Wed 23rd Nov.
