Tipping Comp
UEFA Champions League
2020-21


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 2nd October 2020 in Geneva. 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 2020-21. Once again 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 20th October (the first round of the tipping comp), and 19 rounds later the UEFA Champions League Final will be played, after almost 7½ months, on Saturday 29th May 2021 at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey [it was built for the 2008 Olympics but Turkey lost out to Beijing]. 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 9th December 2020 and the start of the KO Round on Tuesday 16th February 2020.

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. Default for
    the semi-finals, the final and advance picks is the wooden spoon score.
    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 note that all kick-off times in all tipping threads for this comp are UK time. If you lodge your picks after the start of the first game, or fail to lodge, you score default for that round.

    .
We've had multiple winners of this comp but, until the last comp, no-one has won it back-to-back to successfully defend their UEFA title. That changed when N-Bomb won back-to-back titles; and he's now looking for a three-peat. Howie72 has been on the podium six times, without a win; Sypher four times for zero wins; and LeoDaVinci has been on the podium three times for zero wins.

This year's Champions League has 26 teams qualifying direct to the Group Stage of 32 teams. Once again a total of 79 teams, from 54 of the the 55 UEFA member nations, qualified for this year's competition (no team from Liechtenstein*), being 26 direct to the group stage (inside the white rectangle below) and four to the play-off round .. 8 of the other 49 teams progressed through the four qualifying rounds, to join the four who qualified direct to the six play-off round games. Those 12 teams are the ones outside the white rectangle.
    The 32 teams playing in this year's group stage are:
    11   champions from countries ranked 1–11
      6   runners-up from countries 1–6
      5   third-placed teams from countries 1–5
      4   fourth-placed teams from countries 1-4
      6   the six survivors from the play-off round


    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        Sevilla             Real Madird        Barcelona          Atletico Madrid
    2 ENGLAND Liverpool Manchester City Manchester United Chelsea
    3 ITALY Juventus Internazionale Lazio Atalanta
    4 GERMANY Bayern Munich Borussia Dortmund RB Leipzig B Moenchengladbach
    5 FRANCE Paris St-Germain Marseille Rennes
    6 RUSSIA Zenit St Petersburg Locomotiv Moscow
    7 PORTUGAL FC Porto
    8 BELGIUM Club Brugge
    9 UKRAINE Shakhtar Donetsk
    10 TURKEY Istanbul Basaksehir
    11 NETHERLANDS Ajax Amsterdam

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




    FK Krasnodar

    Ghent
    Dynamo Kiev




    12  AUSTRIA      RB Salzburg
    13 CZECH REP Slavia Prague
    14 GREECE Olympiakos PAOK Salonika
    15 CROATIA
    16 DENMARK FC Midtjylland
    17 SWITZERLAND
    18 CYPRUS Omonia Nicosia
    19 SERBIA
    20 SCOTLAND
    21 BELARUS
    22 SWEDEN
    23 NORWAY Molde
    24 KAZAKHSTAN
    25 POLAND
    26 AZERBAIJAN
    27 ISRAEL Maccabi Tel Aviv
    28 BULGARIA
    29 ROMANIA
    30 SLOVAKIA
    31 SLOVENIA
    32 LIECHENSTEIN
    33 HUNGARY Ferencvaros
    The remaining six spots (the ones outside the white square) were filled from the 12 teams in the play-off round, being the 8 of 49 teams that
    made it through the four qualifying rounds, and the four teams that auto-qualified for the play-off round (champions of countries ranked 12,
    13 and 14 plus the 3rd placed team from country ranked 6). The six losers qualified for the Europe League group stage.

    The champions of countries ranked 12 & 13, plus the 3rd placed team from country 6, were previously in the 3rd Qualifying Round. Normally,
    two teams auto qualify for the play-off round (champions of countries #11 and #12) plus 10 from the other 51 teams. As the defending title-
    holder and the Europa League champions had already qualified through their domestic leagues, it became four auto-qualifiers for the Play-Off
    Round joined by 8 of the now 49 remaining teams ... and not 10 of 51 as is usually the case!
* the seven teams in Liechtenstein play in the Swiss national league. The winners of the Liechtenstein Cup qualify for the Europa League. No team from Liechtenstein has qualified to play in the Champions League through either route (through the Swiss League as winners or through the Europa League as winners).

Last year's comp had 15 runners.  This year a field of 14 lined up at the starters gate, with two no shows: KrivoyRog & PaulE. There's a newbie this year: Llynfi. Welcome aboard!

This year's comp, the 18th, didn't break any records. The all-time low remains the field of 13 runners set 11 years ago, in season 2009-10:

Round 1 of 19 saw just three of the eight games with double-digit correct picks. Three games were picked by no-one, or by one or two, which gave two weekly winners with 5/8: wwe84 and ozzz2002. At the other end Llynfi and toocool4u collected the wooden spoon with 2/8.

There were six bonus points .. and three of them was scored by ozzz2002, who's our leader at the end of Day One. A point in arrears is the other weekly winner, wwe84, who scored two bonus pts. The other bonus point was collected by LeoDaVinci, who's in 3rd place a further 2 pts in arrears.  It's been a long time since we've had zero ties in the first three places on Day One of a tipping comp .. maybe it's a unique achievement.

Behind the three out front we have a two-way tie for 4th and then a six-way tie for 6th place; one of which is the defending titleholder, N-Bomb .. who became the first to retain his UEFA CL title. This year he's looking for a three-peat.

The next round will be played in your neck of the woods either this afternoon/ tonight or tomorrow morning, as the case may be: UEFA ( 2 ) Wed 21st Oct. The first two games kick-off in a bit over 3½ hours.

.
We had three winners, two spoons and no bonus points .. ozzz2002 collected one of the spoons and is now joined out front by wwe84. LeoDaVinci retains 3rd place.

The nine players behind the two leaders are separated by a mere 2 points. The three at the rear of the field are a further point behind.

As the Champions League started a month later than normal, the fortnight gap between rounds is now just one week. The next round is on Tuesday : UEFA ( 3 ) Tue 27th Oct.

.
From the day this comp started 18 seasons ago, back in 2003, the highest wooden spoon score was 4/8, which was achieved on numerous occasions. This week we have a new entry in the UEFA Record Book: the WS score was 5/8.

Between us our average strike rate was 74.1% (just under 6/8). This is the third-highest ever achieved over those 18 seasons. The UEFA Record Book has been updated for this feat, as well.

ozzz2002 collects yet another wooden spoon to make it three back-to-back. He falls off the podium to 4th place; replaced by srini701. There's no change out front. The ten players behind the three leaders are still separated by a mere 2 pts.

* strike rate of 25% for a weekly win is probably an all-time record low for any FT tipping comp.
.
Twelve of 14 rolled up at the starter's gate for week 6 .. and seven of us scored a weekly win with 6/8 and five collected a wooden spoon with one less, 5/8.

Two wks ago, after 18 years of trying, we had our highest-ever wooden spoon score in the UEFA Champions League comp with 5/8. Lightning dos strike twice; as we've repeated that feat for another entry in the UEFA Record Book.

One again wwe84 and gtho4 swap places out front. The next seven players are covered by 4 pts (it was 2pts last week and the week before).

New high: no-one
New low : no-one

The next round is three weeks away: UEFA ( 7 ) Tue 24th Nov. From there we have three weeks (six rounds) of back-to-back tipping to complete the 12 rounds of group matches; and start our mid-winter break through to mid-Feb 2021.

* strike rate of 25% for a weekly win is probably an all-time record low for any FT tipping comp.
.
From the day the UEFA CL comp started 18 seasons ago, back in 2003, the highest strike rate we'd ever achieved was 78.9%, set in R16 of the 2011-12 comp. This week we had a full house with 14 of 14 lodging a total of 112 picks .. 102 of them bore fruit for a strike rate of 91.1% (aka 10 wrong in 112) .. we skipped the 80s completely! That's one entry in the FT-PL Record Book.

Does lighting strike three times in four rounds? Three weeks ago in R4 we saw an all-time record set for the highest-ever wooden spoon score with 5/8 .. we repeated that effort in R6. This week in R7 we went one better: the spoon score was an outrageous 6/8 .. aka the reward for a strike rate of 75% is a spoon! That's the 2nd entry in the Record Book.

This is the third entry: 6 of the 14 lodged perfect picks .. and we've only had 10 perfect picks, in total, over the previous 18 seasons! The results of 3 of the 8 games were decided in time added-on: Sevilla waited until the 95th minute to score their winner, Chelsea scored theirs in the 91st, and Juventus scored their winner in 92nd! The other five games were decided well before full-time.

New high: N-Bomb, Howie72
New low : LeoDaVinci, dg_dave

One again wwe84 and gtho4 have swapped places out front. The first three are now separated by a single point and the next five are also covered by a single point. The next round is tomorrow: UEFA ( 8 ) Wed 25th Nov.

* strike rate of 25% for a weekly win is probably an all-time record low for any FT tipping comp.
.
Once again we had a full house with 14 of 14 lodging picks.

We all had identical picks for 4 of the 8 games. We hit pay dirt with two of them but struck out with the other two. Our strike rate fell to 57.1%, from yesterday's all-time record of 91.1%.

wwe84 collected the wooden spoon with 3/8 and *nine* of us were weekly winners with 5/8, which is *less* than yesterday's 6/8 for the spoon.

N-Bomb has now scored four consecutive weekly wins; Howie72 has three consecutive wins.

New high: Howie72 (again)
New low : wwe84, ozzz2002

The six players behind the first three are now separated by a mere point.

That completes four of the six group matches. Even with two games still to play, six teams have qualified for one of the 16 spots in the KO stage: Barcelona, Juventus, Chelsea, Sevilla, Manchester City and Bayern Munich.

Their remaining two games are of mere academic interest for Bayern Munich, as they've already qualified as group winners. The last two games for the other five will determine who goes through as group winners; and thus avoid other group winners in the KO Round (where group winners play group runners-up).

* strike rate of 25% for a weekly win is probably an all-time record low for any FT tipping comp.
.
Our average strike rate has again fallen from the all-time record high of 91.1% for the second consecutive round. It fell to 57.1% last round and this week we're down to a mere 35.6%.

The first nine players are now separated by just 4 pts .. and the remaining five, who are bringing up the rear, are also separated by just 4 pts.

Howie72 was this round's winner, which makes it four straight. Before that he had zero weekly wins .. toocool4u collected his 4th wooden spoon with picks of 1/8.

New high: N-Bomb, Howie72 (again)
New low : srini701, ozzz2002 (again)

The next round is tomorrow, or later today, depending on where your local time zone fits on the globe: UEFA (10 ) Wed 2nd Dec.

* strike rate of 25% for a weekly win is probably an all-time record low for any FT tipping comp.
.
The defending titleholder, N-Bomb, picked 7/8 (he missed the Juventus draw) for his 6th weekly win of the season. He's now in the lead solo.

The first three have now put 3 pts between themselves and the peloton, where six players are separated by a single point. The gap back to the remaining five is unchanged at 3 pts. George95 collected his first wooden spoon for the season and drops back to the rear of the field.

New high: --
New low : wwe84, paper_aero, George95

The final 2 rounds of the group stage will be played next week: UEFA ( 11 ) Tue 8th Dec the R12 on Wed.  We then have a mid-winter break, returning three months later on 16th Feb 2021 for the first leg of the KO Round.

* strike rate of 25% for a weekly win is probably an all-time record low for any FT tipping comp.
.
The three weekly winners picked 5/8 and the four wooden spooners picked 3/8 .. and the remaining five picked 4/8.

LeoDaVinci joins the three out front, and these four have put two pts between themselves and the peloton, which comprises five players separated by a mere 2 pts.

paper_aero collects his first wooden spoon and drifts back to 9th, which is a new personal low for the season.

New high: --
New low : wwe84 (again), paper_aero (again), dg_dave

There's one more round to complete the group stage and the start of a two-month mid-winter break to mid-Feb 21.

.
LeoDaVinci and dg_dave were this round's winners. Howie72 collected his first wooden spoon for the season, leaving just two blanks in that column.

Back-to-back weekly wins, each with a solo pick bonus point, saw LeoDaVinci join N-Bomb at the top of the pile. He was 5 pts in arrears three rounds back.

The pack of four out front is now three (Howie72 drops back to the field). They've now put 3 pts between themselves and the peloton, which comprises four players separated by 1 pt.

New high: LeoDaVinci
New low : --

That completes the group stage .. 16 of the 32 teams progress to the KO Round (each group winner & runner-up). Each team which finished 3rd moves across to the Europa League and the eight 4th placed teams are eliminated from all European comps.

The draw for the KO Round takes place next week on Mon 14th Dec at UEFA HQ in Switzerland. We now have a two-month mid-winter break to 16 Feb 2021 when the first legs of the KO Round commence.
