Procedure

After registration, you can make your predictions under "Prediction Centre". This is possible up to five minutes before the start of the game.

Visibility
Other players' predictions are only visible after the prediction deadline has run out.

Points rule

The predictions are based on the final result after the penalty shootout. Points are awarded for the correct total result of a match, the correct trend (win or draw) and the correct goal difference.

Here are four examples:
Result 2:1 - prediction 1:2 -> 0 points (no points, because the trend is wrong)
Result 1:1 - prediction 0:0 -> 2 points (points for the correct trend "draw")
Result 2:1 - prediction 1:0 -> 3 points (points for correct trend and correct goal difference)
Result 1:2 - prediction 1:2 -> 4 points (points for correct trend and goal difference)

We keep the excitement going!
The group stage has the most games - and therefore the most points for you to collect. To keep the excitement alive, we double the number of points after the group stage. This means for the knockout phase:
Result 2:1 - prediction 1:2 -> 0 points (no points, because the trend is wrong)
Result 1:1 - prediction 0:0 -> 4 points (points for a correct trend "draw")
Result 2:1 - prediction 1:0 -> 6 points (points for correct trend and goal difference)
Result 1:2 - prediction 1:2 -> 8 points (points for correct trend and goal difference)


Tied on points
The rankings of several players who are tied in total points are decided by counting the number of wins on matchdays ("Wins").
