Predicting the matches

Predict the end score of all the matches in the tournament/competition. You have until 15 minutes before the start of a match to add or change your prediction.

As you may have noticed the matches in the next stages are not yet filled 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 15 minutes before the game starts.

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 prediction of a draw. 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 1 points). The last scoring options 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 golden ball

Each player has one golden ball for the tournament. If you place this ball next to a match the score for that match is multiplied by 3. You may place the golden ball next to every match and you can change your mind and move the golden ball, as long this match is still changeable. The golden ball is activated after the prediction for the match is locked. Once activated the golden ball cannot be moved anymore.

Same ranking?

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

  1. Number of times the correct score was guessed;
  2. Number of times the correct result was guessed;
  3. amount of correct bonus questions.
