2015 ACON - Discussion Thread

Re: 2015 ACON - Discussion Thread

Thank you to the 8 forumers who took the time to predict the 2015 AFCON Group Stage.

As the Equatorial Guinea - Congo match has begun, there will be no predictions or editing permitted.

EDIT: People who missed the earlier deadline will still have the ability to predict, but they will not be able to predict the games that have started, and will only be able to predict 1 team that will advance to quarterfinals in the groups where games have been played. This opportunity will end tomorrow.

Vaterni is the only one to have gained more than 1 point, after successfully predicting the correct score of the Algeria - South Africa match. Everyone else got 1 point from getting the correct result of the match stated earlier.

Amazingly, no one predicted that Senegal would defeat Ghana :eek:

(Oh, and as said in an earlier post, feel free to correct any mistakes I make :))

Zlook/Jesse wins the day with his successful prediction of the Equatorial Guinea - Burkina Faso scoreline. Many ties come out of the day. Vaterni stays in front despite gaining no points, and no one got the FGS right, as Aubameyang disappointed almost everyone :o

Everything is still ready to be fought for, no clear domination yet

Gizb absolutely dominates this round. Other notable movers include Tom, Max, Villa/Ultra/Reverie, and Zlook/Jesse. Vaterni, Phil, Vendetta, and I disappoint these 6 games, failing to get many points.

A very big gap forming now, 1st to 3rd has a difference of 7. In the middle of the table everything is still open for grabs, 3rd to 9th have the same difference as 1st to 3rd.

Congo and Equatorial Guinea have already qualified so I have added points gained from that in brackets for now. As shown, no one was able to predict Equatorial Guinea's surprise qualification for next round

Big winners from today's fixture are Vaterni and I, as we both predicted a 3-1 victory for the Ivory Coast. However, we are well off the pace of Reverie and Gizb who have a marginal advantage compared to the duo trying to keep pace, in Max and Tom. Although most people selected Wilfred Bony, or Gervinho as their First Goal Scorer, it was Yaya Toure who scored the first goal of the match, giving no one an extra 2 points.

After tomorrow's match there well is the possibility of some big changes within the top 4: as all of the quartet predicted different results, here are the following scenarios that will result due to the match:

Equatorial Guinea victory -> no leaderboard movement

any draw not 1-1 -> Reverie will move 2 points clear of Gizb, and Tom and Max will not gain any points

any other Ghana victory with scoreline not mentioned -> Reverie and Gizb will be equal in points, Tom and Max will move 3/4 pts within the top

1-1 draw -> Reverie will move 6 points ahead of the rest

2-1 Ghana -> Gizb moves 4 points atop

3-1 Ghana -> Max moves into a 3-way tie with Gizb, Reverie

3-0 Ghana -> Tom moves atop by 1, with Gizb, Reverie right beside him

And Tom gets his first lead at perhaps one of the best times to do so..
