Round 4: Final
For the final you need to make the following set of
predictions for both UEFA semi-finals and the final itself.
- Score at full time: This follows the standard Kibble
rules, i.e. 1 point for correct outcome, or 3 points for exact
scoreline. Full time is 'end of open play', which for this competition is at the end of extra time (if applicable).
- Score at half-time: This also follows
standard Kibble scoring. It need not agree with your full-time
- Nomintated scorer: One point for each
goal that they score. Note that in this round, unlike the previous
are nominating a scorer for every game.
- Time of first goal: You will receive 1 point if the first
goal of the match is within five minutes of your prediction,
of 3 points if it is exactly right. You are predicting
the minute that the goal is scored in, so whole numbers
the purposes of Kibble, all timings are taken from
the score sheet, regardless of the time displayed on my telly.
in extra-time or tie-breaker penalties do not count,
in normal injury time do.
- Scorer Bonus: You will get 2 bonus points if your scorer
scores the first goal. This is in addition to the
point for that goal,
and is independent from your time prediction. Again,
tie-breaker penalties do not
in normal injury time and extra time do.
A note about injury time: If the first goal is scored in
injury time, you will only score a point if your prediction is for
same half of the game. This means that if a goal occurs during
the first minute of injury time in the first half, and you predicted
44 minutes, you will get a point for being within 5 minutes.
If you predicted 46 minutes you won't get a point as the injury
time does not carry through to second half predictions. However
if the goal was scored in the 45th minute both predictions would
get a point, as the goal was in standard time. You may not predict
the occurence of a goal in injury time.
Deadlines: Predictions for both semis must be submitted
by 20:00 on Wednesday 6th. Predictions for the final must be submitted
before it kicks off.
