Once again last minute changes on kick-off times of some of the matches for this round will have an influence on the list of games to be predicted.


- The match counting for the UAE league between Al Nasr Dubai and Ajman started already therefore it will not count for this matchday.

- The Argentinean league game between Banfield and Argentinos Juniors had its kick-off advanced to Saturday at 00:15 CET. This means that all those who did not send their predictions until now, should do it before that, or else their prediction for that particular match will not be counted.

Here is the list of those that haven't yet predicted in the current round:

Teddy Bear
Alex e Champion
Pretty Boy
Kirriku19
Bosanac
tgv325
ac_milan_foreva

Welcome back Alex.

I'm sorry to hear about your aunt.

You can still predict the matches of this matchday as long as you do it before the kick off of the next game (Central Coast Mariners vs Queensland Roar). Just send me a PM. Don't bother predicting the matches of UAE and Argentina because they've already started.

I also missed the deadline myself for 10 of the 13 games, because I forgot that we need to enter the predictions the latest 3 hours before the deadline itself. I have asked Bentex to enter my predictions even if I don't think tgv325, my opponent in this round, predicted himself.

In any case, to avoid any suspicions, I will post here my predictions now:

Sporting Gijón vs Atlético Madrid - X
Sampdoria vs Genoa - 1
Everton vs Aston Villa - X
Santos vs Náutico - 1
Banfield vs Argentinos Juniors - 1 (I sent my prediction before the kick off)
Lille vs Toulouse - 1
Schalke 04 vs Hertha Berlin - X
Marítimo vs Benfica - X
Odense vs Brondby - X
Central Coast Mariners vs Queensland Roar - X
Al Nasr vs Ajman - no prediction
Tacuary vs Nacional - 2
Golden Arrows vs Supersport Utd - 1

We've reached the exact middle of this group stage so I guess it's time for a sum up of the current situation on each of the 4 groups.


Group A
The Belgo-Dutch alliance proposed by Wally at the start of this campaign seems to have worked but only for two of them. In fact Wally and Ezekiel 25:17 are virtually strolling towards the knock-out stage and seem to be the only two predictors in this group with no problems in achieving that goal. Right behind them comes a tight pack of 4, ViRiPiDES, inacio, Teddy Bear and Knoert, only separated by 2 tiny points. Very difficult to predict who will be the two to go through from this lot and we should not count out the dangerous dark horses Blue @ngel and Alex e Champion, whom for probably very different reasons missed a few matchdays but will hopefully be back.


Group B
This is probably the weakest group in terms of average of points per predictor and that is mainly due to the complete absence of one predictor, Kirriku19, and a mix of absences and stinkers from another, Pretty Boy. Still, the top trio, bono, FC Barcelona9 and MetinK5, is fearsome and they all seem to be big candidates for a place in the next stage. The fourth slot should go to one of the other three predictors, Barca King, Robbie Keane or Yacoob, with the culé from Kuwait being the bookies favourite.


Group C
This is clearly the tightest of all groups with only 5 points separating the current leader from the 7th placed! The current top 4, Q007, audiollama, Bosanac and "Andy", have a slight advantage above the rest but that difference can easily disappear in just a couple of matchdays. The pursuing trio, positive focus, ToniSamp and Tenkay, doesn't seem to be willing to let go and even delpi_vanni_10 decided in this last matchday to bring out the goods and register a first win.


Group D
D for Death...well, at least I could say that about myself looking at my form in the last month. Anyway, this is indeed a tough tough group which makes Runes Order performance even more sublime...all hail the Flemish Prediction King! The silent burimi_go and the current champion TomRSCA also seem to be on their way to glory but after that, nothing is clear. Is the old master of XCC tgv325 going to make a strong second half of this group stage and put us all in our places or will this be solved by a good ol' Lisbon derby between me and O Glorioso? Or will HajdukSplit or ac_milan_foreva get some of the luck that escaped in these first 7 group stage rounds?


In any case these are just predictions because after all...it's football that we're talking about! :smileani:



We are going now into Winter break for some well deserved 5 weeks of no Sunday nigh calculations.

Like a good Scandinavian league team, I'll be spending 3 of them recharging batteries in some sunny Lisbon training ground.

So watch out for the 16-18 January weekend because XCC 08/09 will be back! :fero:







PS: Season greetings for those that celebrate something at this time of the year and wishes of a 2009 full of trophies for your favourite teams...except for inacio and O Glorioso, of course. p
