Champions League Prediction League 2008/09

Welcome to the PESGaming 2008/09 Champions League Prediction League.

This competition is open to all PESGaming members. Simply post your predictions for each round of the competition in this thread.

Those of you that have played the Champions League Prediction League the past couple of years will know how this works, as the same scoring rules will apply.

Remember, the key is to make sure you submit predictions every round!

Here’s a full rundown of the rules:
Quote:
Correct result = 1pt
Correct result and goal difference = 2pts
Exact scoreline = 3pts (Correct result + Correct result and goal difference/1+2=3)
Incorrect result = -1pt
In addition to this, you may place a 'BANKER' (optional) on one of the listed fixtures each round. This banker will double your score for that particular match, so place your banker on the result that you are most sure of. e.g. if you score 2 pts from a game, your score will be doubled to 4 pts. But if you incorrectly predict a match that you have placed your banker on, your score of -1 will be doubled to -2 points!

To place your banker, simply type BANKER or B - just some kind of clear indicator next to the relevant fixture.

Example: Actual Result: Chelsea 2-0 Bordeaux

A prediction of…

Chelsea 1-0 Bordeaux would score 1 point. (correct result)
Chelsea 3-1 Bordeaux score 2 points. (correct goal difference)
Chelsea 2-0 Bordeaux score 3 points. (exact scoreline)
Chelsea 0-1 Bordeaux would score -1 points (incorrect result)

Remember, these scores will be doubled if you have placed your banker on it.

Knock-out Stage Predictions
When it comes to the knock-out stages of the competition, there is the possibility of a game going into extra time and penalties in the 2nd leg. You should predict what you think the score will be after 90 minutes. Do not predict what you think the outcome will be after Extra Time or Penalties. Whatever score you have entered, I will take it as your after 90 minutes prediction. If you enter in 3-2 after ET to Chelsea for example, I will take it as a prediction of 3-2 after 90 minutes, and you will score points accordingly.

Making changes to your predictions
If you wish to change one of your predictions after posting it, please send me a PM (Private Message) to inform me of your alteration otherwise your new prediction will not be taken into account. This must be BEFORE the deadline of course.

I make a record of your predictions soon after you post them, which is why you need to notify me of any changes. Do not simply edit your original post without informing me of any changes, as you will score according to the predictions that I had originally recorded and for all I know you could be attempting to cheat, which needless to say is not permitted.

New feature! As well as predicting the results of the matches, I am giving you the chance to add some more points to your score by predicting the outcome of each individual group (i.e. who comes first, second, third, fourth in each group.) For each correct position you will receive 1 point. Therefore, you could get a whopping 32 points if you correctly guess every single position in the group stages.
