Predicting the matches

Predict the end score of all the matches in the tournament/competition. You have until 30 minutes before the start of a match to add or change your prediction.

As you may have noticed the matches outside of the group stage are not yet filled in at the beginning of the tournament. Once the teams are through to the next round, I will add them. These games can also be changed until 30 minutes before the game starts. Or, if you’re feeling lucky, you can predict them now.

The scoring

In the group phase, the scores at the end of the game are used for the calculation of the scores. For final rounds, the score at the end of the game including extra time is used. Goals in a penalty shoot-out are not taken into consideration.

You get points for predicting the correct winner of the match or predicting a draw. We call this the total score. In case you also predict the exact amount of goals scored, you get extra points. We call this the full score. If you got the goals correct you get the extra goal bonus, even if you didn’t get the match result correct (e.g. match ends in 1-1 and you predicted 0-1 you will still get 0 points). The last scoring option is the goal difference bonus: if you predict the correct winner, not the exact score, but you predicted the correct difference in goals, you get the goal difference bonus (e.g. you predicted 3-1 or 4-2 and result is 2-0).

The bonus questions

You can earn extra points during the tournament with the bonus questions. These questions must be answered before a given date and time. Each question shows the points you can earn.

Same ranking?

When multiple players have the exact same amount of points, then the following sorting rules are applied to the ranking (the most important one at the top):

  1. amount of full scores;
  2. amount of total scores;
  3. amount of correct bonus questions.
