    NSC 2018 World Cup Prediction Competition (Main Thread)


    9 Not allowed!
    This is the main thread for the competition where you will post all your predicition and I'll provide updated tables as quick as I can - mostly after each match though weekdays it may only be done once.

    FORMAT
    This prediction competition operates as a knock-out:

    GROUP STAGE will see 6 mini leagues of 8/9 people each and will cover all the group games. The top 2 in each group plus 4 highest scorers (Lucky Losers) from across the groups will qualify for the knock out phase.

    SECOND ROUND will cover the second round and see the last 16 paired with each other. Scores set to 0 the highest scorer of each pair advances to the quarter-finals.

    QUARTER-FINALS will cover the quarter-finals and see the last 8 paired with each other. Scores set to 0 the highest scorer of each pair advances to the semi-finals.

    SEMI-FINALS will cover the Semi-Finals with the last 4 split into two pairs - highest scorer from each advances to the final. Score set to 0.

    FINAL Covers the 3rd place play-off and final. Involves the last two, score set to 0, highest score wins the tournament.

    RULES

    Predicitions to be posted by following dates (I will accept late entries but these will score 0 for any matches already played):
    a) 1st set of group matches - 3.59pm Thu. 14 June
    b) 2nd set of group matches - 6.59pm Tue. 19 June
    c) 3rd set of group matches - 2.59pm Mon. 25 June
    d) Second Round - 2.59pm Sat. 30 June
    e) Quarter-Finals - 2.59pm Fri. 6 July
    f) Semi-Finals - 6.59pm Tue. 10 July
    g) 3rd place play-off/Final - 2.59pm Sat. 14 July
    All predictions for the group stage are to be posted on this thread,
    All predictions for the Second Round, Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals and Final can PM their predictions to me or post them on this thread.
    My decision is final but any errors of maths etc. let me know!

    SCORING
    Will be as follows:
    a) HALF TIME SCORE - 1pt for correct result (eg, Win score, draw), 2 pts for correct score
    b) FULL TIME SCORE - 2 pts for correct result, 5 pts for correct score.
    c) FIRST GOAL - 10 pts for correct time, 6 pts for being up to and including 3 minutes either
    side, 2 pts for being 10 minutes either side, 1 pts for 15 minutes either
    side.
    d) YELLOW CARDS - You will be guessing the total for both teams combined, if your total
    is correct that is the number of points you will score (eg. If you guess
    7, and there 7, then you will score 7 pts). If 0 then you will score 1.
    e) RED CARDS - As yellow cards except your score is multiplied by 2.
    f) EXTRA TIME SCORE - For knock-out round only, 3 pts for correct result, 6 pts for correct score.
    g) PENALTIES - Knock-out round only, 4 pts for correct result, 8 pts for correct penalty
    score.

    JOKER. You will be permitted to play a joker for each set of matches in the group stage, plus one in the Second Round, one in the Quarter-Finals, one in the Semis and one for the 3rd place play-off/ FINAL. The normal joker will DOUBLE your total points tally in that match. If someone indicates more than one per set then I will take the first listed only.
    TABLES. In the event of a tie in points, position will be decided first on correct first goal guesses, then correct full time scores, then half time scores, then total of red cards guessed then yellow cards. After that I toss a coin! Once the knock-out phase has been reached, then after first goal guesses, it becomes penalty score guesses, extra time guesses, then full time guesses. I’ll try and update tables after each day.

    KNOCK-OUT PHASE. If scores in a pair are level after each set of matches then the tie will be decided by count back. I will go back over all the matches and award a point for each section you beat your opponent in, the one with the highest cumulative total wins. Should it still be a tie, then I will go back to the last game you predicted in Round 2 and start counting back. I will repeat this process until I have a winner. For the Final there will be a couple of extra predictions on corners and possession which will be used in event of a tie.


    Writing out your predictions.

    If you could all do the following when posting them then it will be easy for me to work out who is predicting what:

    RUSSIA (1) 4 v 2 (2) SAUDI ARABIA (Brackets indicate half time) *** (Stars indicate playing your joker)
    1st G = 23rd Minute
    YC = 7
    RC = 2

    For the knock-out rounds:

    PANAMA (1) [2] 3 v 3 [2] (0) ICELAND (Square brackets indicate full time - only add if you want to predict an outcome in extra time)
    1st G = 45 Minute
    YC = 13
    RC = 4
    PEN; 14-13 Panama.

    NB: All goals scored in injury time of each half will count as 45 or 90.

    First set of group matches (in playing order)

    Russia v Saudi Arabia
