    Champions League

    Attachment 23455

    The final group game of the Champions League was completed Friday and I've just noticed today that I didn't qualify from my group.

    Here's the final table, which as you can see I had the same points as 2nd but a better goal difference. Why have they finished 2nd rather than me?

    It says nothing about how the table is decided in the event of a tie on the Competion Rules, so I assumed that it would be goal difference like the league.

    Annoying as I won my last group match and used quite a few green packs to make sure my team was fully fit before the game, which as it turned out was meaningless if I was already out!
    Play ball!

    Accidental double posts happen sometimes.

    The rules for deciding tie are a lot like RL Champs League (very complicated)
    But if there is a tie in points, the head to head amongst tied teams is the consideration for tie breaking..:

    If The following criteria are applied to determine the rankings (in descending order):
    a) higher number of points obtained in the group matches played among the teams in question
    b) superior goal difference from the group matches played among the teams in question
    c) higher number of goals scored in the group matches played among the teams in question
    d) higher number of goals scored away from home in the group matches played among the teams in question

    e) If after having applied criteria a) to d), two teams still have an equal ranking,
    criteria a) to d) are reapplied to determine the final ranking of the two teams.

    If this procedure does not lead to a decision, criteria f) to g) apply:
    f) superior goal difference from all group matches played
    g) higher number of goals scored from all group matches played
