Hi everyone, the group stage is now finalized - you can find all the details in the top post.
First of all, I will try to make and publish the draw on Monday late evening (latest Tuesday morning) - basically the draw will be simple. For Quarterfinal I will set two pots - one containing group winners and another one with teams who finished second. There will be one restriction - teams from the same group can't play against each other in QF. And the other rule is that group winners will first play away.
I will also do SF draw which is fully random (first team drawn will play first game home) and I will also draw Final / 3rd place games - just to know which team will play first game home. Once the QF draw is published, please setup your games asap - and if possible try to play rather earlier within the schedule than later - so you have more time to setup SF and final games.
To comment on the last round, some really interesting things happen
- Fc.ReD.D@gS made two records: highest win in the history (10:0 away), plus on top Dugardein scored 6 goals in one game (previously we had two players who scored 4 goals in a game).
- Primisimo FC secured second position after beating FK Kabelwerk 2:1 who finished third.
- Noldor won the battle for the group winner against Valcíři Chomutov C.F. 3:2.
- last game brought first point to FC Jazero (1:1 against KFC Heist). The only team with 0 points total is a second representative of Slovakia - FK Laugaricio.
- the most dramatic group D finished with S.A.T as a group winner - a point ahead of Chelsea champion, Fc Mantel is out although they played really well.
- we still have three teams unbeaten in this season - FC Remedy, Noldor and AquaAzzurri.
In summary - only two teams from the first pot won their groups (FC Remedy and Noldor). The remaining two group winners are from POT3. Surprisingly also two teams from POT4 qualified to QF - Fc.ReD.D@gS and Valcíři Chomutov C.F., while the only successful team from POT2 is Primisimo FC.
We will have following POTs for QF draw:
1 - GROUP WINNERS: AquaAzzurri (LIT), FC Remedy (NED), Noldor (SWE), S.A.T (AUS)
2 - SECOND TEAMS: Fc.ReD.D@gS (GER), Primisimo FC (CZE), Valcíři Chomutov C.F. (CZE), Chelsea champion (BUL)
