U'sual Champions League 2021 - Round of 16 20:05 - Feb 10 with 1641 viewswessex_exile

So here we are, in the week approaching the start of the next 'snouts in the trough' Champion's League. The 12 qualifiers (qualification ranking in brackets), including holder thrillseeker, have been passed through the random group selector meat grinder, and have emerged as follows:

Group A
thrillseeker (1)
unitedwhites (6)
wessex_exile (11)

Group B
sevebalo (4)
mfb_cufc (5)
Sector4 (10)

Group C
ghughes11 (3)
burnsieespana (9)
Daniel (12)

Group D
concordman (2)
durham_exile (7)
TheFatGooner (8)

Fixtures
The fixtures to predict are as follows:
16/02/2021: Barcelona v Paris Saint Germain
16/02/2021: RB Leipzig v Liverpool
17/02/2021: FC Porto v Juventus
17/02/2021: Sevilla v Borussia Dortmund
23/02/2021: Atlético Madrid v Chelsea
23/02/2021: Lazio v Bayern Munich
24/02/2021: Atalanta v Real Madrid
24/02/2021: Borussia Mönchengladbach v Manchester City
09/03/2021: Borussia Dortmund v Sevilla
09/03/2021: Juventus v FC Porto
10/03/2021: Liverpool v RB Leipzig
10/03/2021: Paris Saint Germain v Barcelona
16/03/2021: Manchester City v Borussia Mönchengladbach
16/03/2021: Real Madrid v Atalanta
17/03/2021: Chelsea v Atlético Madrid
17/03/2021: Bayern Munich v Lazio

Rules
Basic stuff
As always, there will be no first-to-post tie-break deciders, only most spot-ons. However, remember you are only allowed one exact match prediction with each one of your group members for this entire round (1st and 2nd legs together), so first to post may be a factor in this regard.

If I spot too many exact matches I will do my best to give advance warning, but please don't rely on me to do this - you must watch this one yourselves too.

3pts for a spot-on result, 1pt for the correct outcome (home win, draw or away win). All predictions are the result at the end of normal time, extra-time and/or penalties will not count.

Round of 16
Top two from each Group will go through. If a tie-break is needed in any Group, and given the usual attendance prediction is likely to be futile, the tie-break prediction will be the total number of goals scored in League 2 on March 20th (the Saturday after the final Champion's League matches).

Only those involved in the tie-break will need to make a prediction, so this can be done any time before the first League 2 match kicks off on the Saturday (Stevenage v Carlisle is currently scheduled to be a 1pm kick-off). The closest to the right amount will win the tie-break in their Group, so obviously you can't predict the same amount as another Group member. First to post will count here if necessary.

Quarter-finals
The Group qualifiers will then form two mini-leagues of 4, and play off against each other predicting all of the Quarter-final matches. Mini-leagues will be comprised as follows: Winner A, Runner-Up B, Winner C, Runner-up D and Runner-up A, Winner B, Runner-up C, Winner D.

Semi-finals
The top two from each mini-league will then be drawn from a hat to play off in head-to-head matches, all predicting the semi-final matches.

Final
The finalists will play-off predicting the Champions League Final, this will include predicting different aspects of the game, not just the score - and will be submitted as concealed bids (via PM to me). Should I be fortunate enough to still be involved in the competition at the semi-final or final stages, a neutral third party will be found to do the draws and/or receive the finalist's predictions.

…and finally
It remains to be seen if FIFA will keep the two-legged approach for the post Round of 16 phase, depending I guess on how Europe is faring in the pandemic. Like last season I may have to tweak the rules for these rounds to provide more scoring opportunities, and indeed any further tie-break questions after the Round of 16 - I'll keep you posted on those.


Good luck everyone!

Cheers chap - you have three exact matches with my predictions:

10/03/2021: Liverpool 2 v RB Leipzig 0
10/03/2021: Paris Saint Germain 2 v Barcelona 1
17/03/2021: Chelsea 2 v Atlético Madrid 1

You only have to amend two of the three, so your call?

TS - you have two exact matches with mine, so you'll need to change one of the following:

Atlético Madrid v Chelsea 1-1 (2-1)
Atalanta v Real Madrid 0-2 (1-2)

As you've also had your one permitted match with unitedwhites (Leipzig 1 Liverpool 2), I've put his predictions in brackets, as you can't chose either of those when you amend.

Still to predict the first leg matches - sevebalo, ghughes11, Daniel and TheFatGooner. I'm out for the day tomorrow, so pay close attention to the predictions of others in your group, as I won't be back until about 6pm to let you know if I spot any amendments needed.

Unitedwhites has amendments to make to a couple of his second leg match predictions, but still plenty of time to do that.

All good too sevebalo.

TFG - mostly okay, just one amendment needed because of exact matches with Durham. As one of those (and therefore permitted) is tonight's RB Leipzig 2 Liverpool 1, I'll take that one as okay, leaving just Juventus 2 FC Porto 0 in the second legs to be changed. You can change it to whatever you want btw, no restrictions.

Tonight has finished with a thumping away win for PSG, beating Barcelona 4-1, and another away win for Liverpool, 2-0 at RB Leipzig. A quick update ahead of tomorrow's fixtures:

Group A
1} wessex_exile 1/0 3pts
2} unitedwhites 0/2 2pts
3} thrillseeker 0/1 1pts
It's Ted Rogers time, as I pick up a spot-on for the Liverpool victory, unitedwhites with 2pts for both outcomes, and thrillseeker with 1pt for the Liverpool away win.

Group B
1} mfb_cufc 0/1 1pts
2} sevebalo 0/0 0pts
2} Sector4 0/0 0pts
Slim pickings, but mfb_cufc gets off the mark with 1pt for Liverpool's away win.

Group C
1} burnsieespana 0/1 1pts
2} ghughes11 0/0 0pts
2} Daniel 0/0 0pts
Similarly few points, but burnsieespana is one of very few to predict the PSG away win, to earn 1pt.

Group D
1} durham_exile 0/2 2pts
2} concordman 0/0 0pts
2} TheFatGooner 0/0 0pts
The only point scorer in Group D, durham_exile picks up 2pts for both outcomes.
