    Group stage done! Congrats to everyone who advanced! Safe travels to Germany [​IMG]

    In our competition firstly a shout-out to Barberserk, Kaas and Peach. They correctly predicted 14 out of 16 teams advancing from the groups. Well done!
    Germany's unexpected early elimination was a shock to everyone here too, everyone had Germans advancing. Secondly Poland's uninspiring effort was a surprise to most, 25 of 38 responses had Poland out of group stage.
    Biggest surprises naturally were then from those groups, one third of the responses had Japan or Sweden advancing. Only Noisymice, Smallcorgi and Terrorted had both of them advancing.

    In fantasy part Comparsion resiliently holds the lead, albeit with just one point ahead of Terrorted and Xpeaches. Asianbear, Pliked and Whodatbe round out the top six and they are slightly ahead rest of the contestants at this point.
    Best performer of our footballers has been Cristiano Ronaldo who arguably could be said to be the MVP of the group stage with 4 goals so far. All the South Americans seem to be heating up and how far can Luka Modrić lead Croatia to? The knockout round will start on Saturday and hopefully we will have some exciting football and competition following!

    Extra shout-out to Xpeaches, who is leading the world cup part and is 2nd in fantasy, excellent work! :)

    Round of 16 done and what dramatic matches! Eight happy teams advanced to quarter-finals and two happy leaders in our competition. Barberserk and Terrorted alone in the lead in their respective parts. Well done!

    Out of eight countries, five were correctly guessed by Anythin, Barberserk, +Egx and Stanleyjub. Looking at the semi-final predictions, the surprising events of this World Cup will also shape our standings heavily. Only three responses can get 3 out of 4 semifinalists correct. Most responses have two : Brazil and France. Looking even further, remarkably there are no responses anymore that can have both finalists correct. There are three responses that have a team from the side of the bracket that has Croatia, England, Russia and Sweden in the final, but Croatia with Portugal, England with Spain and Russia with Germany, all now eliminated. Predicting the correct champion gives out 30 points, that can become the deciding factor in our competition. Brazil, Croatia, England and France have been picked by various contestants.

    Some player predictions still alive in the awards-section. Philippe Coutinho, Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappé, Luka Modric, Neymar, Paul Pogba for Golden Ball. Harry Kane looks the strongest candidate for Golden Ball with 6 goals already but no one had picked him. Closest predictions alive are Griezmann and Neymar both with two goals. For Golden Glove, few predictions left for Lloris, Alisson and Subasic.

    In fantasy only 12 players are left but big points still to be gotten.
    Responses having a player :
    Griezmann FRA - 8
    Neymar BRA - 12
    De Bruyne BEL - 9
    Pogba FRA - 6
    Miranda BRA - 6
    Michy Batshuayi BEL - 3
    Marcus Rashford ENG - 12
    Kylian Mbappé FRA - 12
    Luis Suárez URU - 20
    Emil Forsberg SWE - 4
    Aleksandr Golovin RUS - 6
    Luka Modric CRO - 9

    Lolbandlol, Kaashax and Stanleyjub have the most players left in their predictions, 5 players.

    Belgium 4 - advanced (Brazilianf, Sequitur, Terrorted, Trinidadian)

    With any results today Barberserk will keep his lead, but optimal results for Sequitur or Terrorted can raise them up to second place.

    Only four games left of this beautiful tournament! And only so little different scenarios left so we can take a look who here really has a chance anymore to win the world cup part!
    Perhaps little sadly the other or both sides of the finalists will be a big surprise. Both Croatia or England were picked by just three contestants to become the champion and Belgium not by anyone. That means of course along with the fact that many favourites were dropped early in the tournament that not many contestants have a chance to take the glorious win anymore! But a little shake up will do just fine sporting wise.

    For newcomers in this competition little clarification regarding my lead at the moment. I obviously can't win this competition so consider Barberserk the current leader.

    List of possible winners and scenarios (i've excluded unlikely player award scenarios) :

    Barberserk - needs Belgium to become a champion by defeating England in the final
    Sequitur - needs Belgium to become a champion by defeating England in the final AND Griezmann to get Golden Boot and Lloris to not get Golden Glove
    Asianbear - needs Croatia to become a champion OR Croatia to win semi-final and France to lose semi-final
    Kaashax - needs France to become champion
    Trinidadian - needs France to become champion AND Griezmann to get Golden Ball or Lloris to get Golden Glove
    Pliked - needs Belgium to become a champion by defeating England and Lloris to get Golden Glove
    Smallcorgi - needs England to become champion

    In fantasy the win is also contested only narrowly anymore. Kaashax and Xpeaches are tied, but Kaas having the most players of the top contestants is looking strongest at the moment.

    Kaashax -
    (Griezmann, De Bruyne, Rashford, Mbappé) - likely just needs to tie Modric with Griezmann and De Bruyne for win
    Xpeaches - (De Bruyne, Mbappé, Modric) - needs to outscore Griezmann and De Bruyne with Modric)
    Aaffxx - (Rashford, Mbappé, Modric) - two points behind lead, needs combined help from Rashford, Mbappé and Modric to gain places.
    Nadya - (Batshuayi, Modric) - eight points behind lead, needs heroics from Batshuayi to gain places.
    Lolbandlol - (Pogba, Rashford, Modric) - eight points behind lead, needs combined heroics from Pogba, Rashford and Modric to gain places.

    In summary it looks pretty good for Kaashax in both competitions at the moment but I have a feeling we have some surprises still coming in this tournament...

    Day 22 - 10.7 Matches

    France [​IMG] - Belgium [​IMG] 1-0


    Players :
    Antoine Griezmann FRA - no goals vs. BEL - 0 points
    Paul Pogba FRA - no assists vs. BEL - 0 points
    Kylian Mbappé FRA - no goals or assists vs. BEL - 0 points
    Kevin De Bruyne BEL - no assists vs. FRA - 0 points

    Responses having a country advance :
    France 11 - advanced
    Belgium 0

    France goes to final and that means our list of potential winners narrows down. Kaashax and Trinidadian have to wait until tomorrow evening to find out if they will go up against Asianbear (Croatia) or Smallcorgi (England) in the final. Have to note great efforts by Hugo Lloris between the French goal posts, if France becomes champion it would be hard to argue against him to be the best goalkeeper of the tournament. This of course bodes well for Trinidadian who would become our winner if that should happen.
    In fantasy no points awarded today, which is good news for Xpeaches who has Modric for tomorrow's game ready to get points.

    Only the Final match ahead in this tournament now. The battle between France and Croatia but also between Asianbear and Kaashax & Trinidadian. If Croatia wins our champion is Asianbear, if France wins it's either Kaashax or Trinidadian.

    Asianbear 115p - Champion (30p) : Croatia / Golden Ball (6p) : Modric / Golden Boot (6+2p) : Mandzukic, 6 goals / Golden Glove (6p) : Subasic
    Kaashax 115p - Champion : France / Golden Ball : Pogba / Golden Boot : Griezmann, 9 goals
    Trinidadian 111p - Champion : France / Golden Ball : Griezmann / Golden Boot : Griezmann / Golden Glove : Lloris
    --------------------------------------
    Other contestants picking France or Croatia
    Pepperooney 99p - Champion : France / Golden Ball : Griezmann / Golden Glove : Lloris - possibly rising to 3rd.
    Musakristin 95p - Champion : France / Golden Boot : Griezmann, 6 goals - possibly rising to 3rd.
    Whodatbe 87p - Champion : Croatia - possibly rising to 2nd.
    ----------------------------------------
    Other contestants possibly getting player award points
    Stanleyjub 12 points
    +Egx 6 points
    Pliked 6 points
    Sequitur 6 points
    Tahseen 6 points
    Terrorted 6 points

    In Fantasy Kaashax is also part of the final matchup. Xpeaches has currently the lead but just by 1 point. In a tie-situation Kas has the tie-breaker.

    Xpeaches 27p - Kylian Mbappé, Luka Modric
    Kaashax 26p - Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappé

    To sum up, Kas needs at least one goal from Griezmann in the final, possibly more depending what happens to Croatia and Modric.

    Closest theoretical threat to either of them is Lolbandlol who has Pogba and Modric but is 10 points behind Peach at the moment.

    Battle for third place will be also tight, Terrorted currently third with Griezmann two points ahead of a large group set to catch her. Aaffxx (Mbappé, Modric), Pliked (Mbappé), Sequitur (Griezmann, Mbappé) and Trinidadian (Griezmann, Mbappé) all have a chance to be third. With previously mentioned Lolbandlol also having small chances.
