the biologist Posted October 10, 2008 Share Posted October 10, 2008 Just had an idea of starting a thread that will lead us to the next to last game, maybe the last one that's gonna count really before the QF (I hope !). First of all, full credits to MTLcanada514 who made the search for the tiebreaking rules: quote:Originally posted by MTLcanada514 If two teams are tied on points the following tie-breaker criteria shall be applied, in order, to determine the ranking of teams : Greater number of points earned in matches between the teams concerned Greater goal difference in matches between the teams concerned Greater number of goals scored away from home in matches between the teams concerned Reapply first three criteria if two or more teams are still tied Greater goal difference in all group matches Greater number of goals scored in group matches Greater number of goals scored away in all group Matches Drawing of lots http://www.concacaf.com/graphics/stats-regs/pdf/Regulations%20CONCACAF%20Champions%20Leaguev10.pdf My turn now... C'mon everyone !!! Open your eyes ! Given these tiebreaking rules, if Olimpia wins against us by one goal in MTL, it means that we go to the 3rd tiebreaker (Away goals). WE SCORED 2 ON OLIMPIA'S GROUND !!! That means that a 1-0 win by Olimpia at SS is not enough for them to win the tiebreaker ! So in order for them to beat us in the standings, they need to score AT LEAST 2 GOALS. Then, again, if the final score is 2-1 for Olimpia, we then go to the 4th tiebreaker, which is FINALLY the overall goal differential (a department we're leading +6 to 0). Mmmmmm, looks good... [}] Oh, and by the way, after today's matches, the second best overall total for points after Mtl is 7 ! And more: the second best overall goal differential is only +3 ! [8D] So it's really hard to be down-to-earth given all these facts. So any killjoy now ? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
