    Rules.
    • Post your predictions before kickoff.
    • No blanket predictions

    Scoring

    Correct result = 1 pt
    Correct score = 1 pt

    Bonus points (only received if the correct result is predicted):

    Correct home team score = 0.5 pt
    Correct away team score = 0.5 pt
    Correct margin of victory = 0.5 (not valid for a draw)

    All scores accumulate.

    I will post the fixtures for the following day once the last match of the day is over, however, you don't need to wait until then. If you want to make a full prediction, the full fixtures are below, although obviously you won't know the knockout teams until later on. You can change your prediction until kickoff - last posted prediction prior to kickoff counts. The time next to the fixture is UK time for kickoff.

  • Clearly only the psychics who know this thread would turn up deserve any points today.

    To clarify, does this effectively mean you get 1 pt for a correct result, 2 points for a correct score, and 1.5 points for getting the correct result plus one of those other things right?
  • This is gonna finish 3-1, I can feel it in my bones.
  • Damn it, only just saw this.

    Would only have gone 1-0 anyway so no big loss.
    Let's go exploring....
  • Literally.

    That'd be nice. But can't see SA scoring now.
  • Or at any point in the tournament.
  • It'll entirely depend on what deal Putin and his counterpart are striking up in the stands. Must be why it keeps cutting to them.

    Example:

    Result
    Home team 3 - 1 Away team

    Player 1 prediction
    Home team 3 - 1 away team = 3.5 points (1pt for correct result, 1pt for correct score, 0.5 for correct home score, 0.5 for correct away score and 0.5 for correct margin of victory)

    Player 2 prediction
    Home team 3 - 2 away team = 1.5 points (1pt for correct result, 0.5 for correct home score)

    Player 3
    Home team 1 - 0 away team = 1 point (1pt for correct result)

    Player 4
    Home team 2 - 0 away team = 1.5 points (1pt for correct result, 0.5 for correct margin of victory)

    Player 5
    Home team 3 - 3 away team = 0 points (result not predicted correctly)

    It’s like the matched betting thread in how quickly it makes my eyes glaze over.
