We had just the one winner .. srini701 scored his first for the season in the last round, and now scores his second to fly up the table from 12th to 7th, a mere 2 pts off the podium. He was 7 points in arrears three weeks ago .. wwe84 is still the only player looking for his first win.

wwe84 collected his 5th wooden spoon for the season (it's his fourth in six weeks).

N-Bomb, the only spoon-less player, is now 2 points ahead the peloton (it was 3 points last week). The next 6 pts (it was five last week) cover the rest of the field of 12 players, apart from the two tail-enders, wwe84 and ozzz2002.

There were four bonus pts .. srini701 collected his first, leaving one blank in that column: paper_aero.

New highs: PaulE
New lows : dg_dave (again)

N-Bomb out front and wwe84 at the rear of the field were the only players who retained their spot from the previous round. The rest of us played out a perfect rendition of musical chairs. The next round is tonight, lunchtime if you're in North America, around midnight on the sub-continent and tomorrow morning downunder, around sunrise : UEFA ( 12 ) Wed 12th Dec.

Round 13 sees ozzz2002 score his second weekly win for the season (one was a solo pick bonus) .. wwe84 is still looking for his first win. Howie72 and toocool4u collected a wooden spoon.

N-Bomb, the only spoon-less player, is now a humungous 6 points ahead the peloton (previously 3 pts). He's now odds-on to win this, as we're now 2/3rds of the way through the comp. The next 3 pts cover seven players (no change).

New highs: none
New lows : Sypher (again)

Manchester City were behind 2-1 at half time and were reduced to ten players in the 68th. They scored twice in the last 5 minutes to win 3-2. Atletico beat Juventus 2-0. We all missed this (and so did the bookies) except for N-Bomb, who collected a bonus point for a superbly astute pick .. paper_aero is still looking for his first bonus point.

A summary of our advance picks for the semi-finalists x4 is below. We all have a complete set of four .. until the next round (second leg of KO Round), which will decided which teams progress to the quarter-finals. Some of us will lose one or two of our advance picks.

14 of 15 players lodged advance picks : Advance tips : lodged in Round 13, first leg of knock out round

Pick the four semi-finalists
one point a pick, added into Round 17 (the 3rd last round)

Sypher was the clear winner of this round with 7/8 (next best was 5/8 by just one player, wwe84). He also scored a bonus point for a solo pick, with George95, and flies up the table from 12th (3rd last) to 6th, a mere 2 pts off the podium .. wwe84 is still looking for his first win. ElfTwinkle and srini701 collected a wooden spoon.

N-Bomb, the only spoon-less player, maintains his 6 point margin back to the peleton, who have just 5 rounds or 40 pts in which to mow him down. The next 5 pts cover ten players.

New highs: ---
New lows : ---

Real Madrid and PSG are out; and three players have lost their advance pick for the winner and one finalist: ElfTwinkle, George95 and toocool4u. Two more have lost a finalist: N-Bomb and srini701 (see post above this one). Four of the eight quarter-finalists are from England:

Liverpool
Manchester City
Manchester United
Tottenham Hotspur
Ajax Amsterdam
Barcelona
Juventus
FC Porto

The last time this was achieved (also by England) was in 2008-09 and 2007-08. The draw for the four quarter-finals will take place in Switzerland on Friday, at 12 noon local time.

dg_dave won this round with 6/8. George95 collected the wooden spoon with 2/8 .. and the rest of us were spread out in between.

N-Bomb, who's still the only spoon-less player, is now 7 pts ahead of the peleton, who have just 4 rounds or 32 pts available to mow him down. It's possible but unlikely, as the finish post is too close. Plus, as the last three rounds include advance picks, those picks are already locked-in (see post below this one) .. btw N-Bomb has never won this!

The next 5 points still cover ten players .. and the first five of those are now separated by just one point. It looks like the silver & bronze medals behind N-Bomb won't be decided until the final round.

New highs: PaulE
New lows :  -

Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring for Juventus with a cracker of a header, almost as good as the flying header scored by Robyn van Persie back in 2014 vs. Spain, at the FIFA World Cup in Brazil. The second legs of the four quarter-finals will be played next week.

Everyone was at the starting gates for the 2nd leg except for last week's winner, dg_dave. This week's winners were N-Bomb and paper_aero; and they both scored a bonus point for picking the HT result in Turin .. the bonus point by paper_aero filled the last blank in that column. He moves up into 2nd place.

It looks like the fat lady has started singing, N-Bomb, who's still the only spoon-less player, is now a humungous 8 pts ahead, with just three rounds or 24 points remaining. The next five, separated by a mere 2 pts, will battle it out for silver and bronze .. btw N-Bomb has never won this!

Although they won the second leg, Manchester City were knocked out by Spurs on the away goals rule .. a result which ended their dream of an unprecedented quadruple: FAPL, FA Cup, League Cup and ECL. The score in that game after 21 minutes was 3-2, which is the shortest amount of time in which 5 goals have been scored in a Champions League match.

The only team which has achieved the quadruple is Celtic, in 1967: Scottish League, SFA Cup, League Cup and European Cup. Their squad was all-Scottish (unique achievement, no foreign players) .. and all were born within 30 miles of Parkhead! On the other hand, on 13th September 2006 in Hamburg, Arsenal fielded a team with 11 different nationalities in their ECL match vs. Hamburg SV (from the 28th minute onwards, after as substitution).

The last time Spurs were in the semi-finals was in 1962 when the ECL was known as the European Cup (they were the champions of England in 1961). Non-champions first appeared in the ECL in 1997.

Ten different English clubs have played in the EC/ECL semi-finals (the most by any country in Europe). The other members of the elite club are: Arsenal, Aston Villa, Chelsea, Derby County, Leeds United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester Utd & Nottingham Forest. While we're at it, some more records held by England: Most winning clubs (5): Liverpool, Manchester United, Nottingham Forest, Aston Villa and Chelsea. Most finalists (7): those five winners, plus Leeds and Arsenal.

If Spurs go all the way, they will add to those last two records.

.
toocool4u wins the round solo with 5/8 of which two were solo picks. He climbs up into 6th place a mere 3 pts off the podium.

There were four wooden spoon awards. N-Bomb collected his first, which filled the last blank in that column, but retains 1st place by a margin of 7 pts. With just two rounds and 16 pts left until we reach the finish post, the bookies have him odds-on favourite to win his first-ever ECL title.

The next six are separated by a mere 3 pts. Two of those six will fill the minor placings with silver and bronze.

Spurs lost at home and now have a mountain to climb in the return leg in Amsterdam .. they'll be in with a show if they can score first. Liverpool lost 3-0 in Camp Nou and will need a minor miracle next week at at Anfield to progress to the final. If Barca score just one goal, Liverpool will need to win the return leg by a score of 6-1.

* strike rate of 25% for a weekly win is probably an all-time record low for any FT tipping comp.
.
The unbelievable has happened; two nights in a row. On Tuesday night Liverpool faced Barcelona and elimination, having lost 3-0 away.  They won 4-0 and knocked out the favourites. Barcelona couldn't even score one away goal; not one. If they did, Liverpool would've needed to win 6-1. Anfield will remember this game for years to come.

On Wednesday night, Spurs faced a bigger mountain. They faced Ajax & elimination, having lost at home 0-1. They needed to score first, but didn't. Ajax did & went in at half time leading 2-0 (3-0 on aggregate). Lucas Moura score a hat-trick in the second half to tie the semi at 3-3. His 3rd came at the death, in the 6th minute of stoppage time!  Spurs went through to their first-ever UCL Final on the away goals rule.

Those upsets, and our pathetic advance picks, saw an average strike rate of 20.8% correct picks between us. This equals the 3rd-lowest in any UCL comp since the first 16 years ago, way back in 2003 .. 12 of us were at the starter's gate to lodge picks and six of us scored either 0/8 or 1/8.

wwe84 was the round's winner with 5/8 .. and two of those were solo picks! It was his first win of the season, filled in the last blank in that column, and saw him finally climb off the last rung of the ladder (he's been stuck there since Round 11). The four who scored 0/8 collected a wooden spoon each.

N-Bomb was one of three who didn't make it to the starter's gate, but it didn't have much of an impact out front when the average strike rate was a paltry 20.8% .. and the round's winner was way back at the rear of the field. He retains the lead with a margin of 5 points, which should be enough for him to win his first-ever CL gold medal, as no-one has a live pick for the winner (worth 5 pts in the final round).

The next seven are separated by 4 pts (that's almost half the field of 15 runners). With just one round left, no-one else can finish on the podium for silver or bronze.

New high:  -
New low : dg_dave & LeoDaVinci

Spurs are the 8th team from England to play in a CL Final, the most by any country, being the five who've won this: Liverpool, Manchester Utd, Nottingham Forest, Aston Villa and Chelsea, plus Leeds United, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur. Forest hold this unique record: they're the only team to have won more CL titles than domestic league titles (European Champions Cup 1979 and 1980, champions of England in 1978). Bayer Leverkusen almost emulated this feat in 2002 (lost UCL Final and have never won their home league).

Liverpool are playing in back-to-back finals. They were beaten 3-1 last year by Real Madrid. Rumour has it that Sypher has already booked his tickets.

COYS!

The final round saw three winners with 5/8 and two wooden spoons with 0/8.

N-Bomb retained his spot at the top of the pile for the 15th consecutive week to win his first-ever gold medal in the ECL tipping comp! He was leader in all 19 rounds except two .. and was 1st or 2nd for the entire season.

For the second year running, Howie72 has finished in a dead-heat for second place. Last year he won silver on a countback, this year he lost out to Dizart.

paper_aero finished 4th, a point off the podium. He had the most weekly wins with six .. ahead of N-Bomb, the gold medallist, who scored five .. wwe84 collected more spoons than anyone with seven, which is exactly what he achieved last year (most spoons with seven).

All of us scored a win, collected a spoon and scored a bonus point. There were no blanks in those three columns.

New highs: toocool4u
New lows : gtho4

No-one reached double digits for bonus points, unlike last year, when three finished with 10 bonus points each: wwe84, ozzz2002 and Sypher. The best countback figures were +4 by paper_aero (6-2) followed by N-Bomb at +4 (5-1). At the other end, wwe84 had the biggest negative differential at -6.

This was Liverpool's 6th win. They're
now 3rd on the all-time list behind
Real Madrid (13) and AC Milan (7).

This year's ECL was the 64th edition;
and 36 of them 've been won by five
teams: R Madrid, AC Milan, Liverpool,
Bayern Munich and Barcelona.

Only six teams have played the last six finals (Real Madrid won four of them). Liverpool lost last year's final:

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
2019   2-0   Liverpool v Tottenham Hotspur

ECL records held by England: Most winning clubs (5): Liverpool, Manch United, Nottingham Forest, Aston Villa and Chelsea. Most finalists (8): those five winners, plus Leeds United, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur. Most semi-finalists (10): those eight plus Derby County and Manch City.

This year's comp was the 16th edition of the ECL comp. No-one has retained their title, and two players have won this on three occasions: doomed (2004, 2006 and 2008) and Dizart (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 2019-20, the 17th edition of the ECL tipping comp.
