If you won your group stages you got matched with a team that finished 2nd, team that won group stages got 2nd leg at home, and you couldnt draw the team from your group, starting in qf its random
For group stages it's based on european coefficient, essentially you earn points every year for winning games in europe, be it champions league or europa, and it's a rolling score over past 5 years
So for group of 32, its split into 4 pots, pot A is champions league and europa league winners, plus the 6 champions from top 6 european leagues, as of right now its england, spain, Italy, germany, france, russia
CL Draw tomorrow. Want anyone but City tbh.
I'm kinda sad cause I read that KJ got permabanned? WTF up with that? Every interaction I ever had with that guy was nice - good soccer guy.
Soccer guys are dying off big time. ManUK, Billy, Hugh613, DanAnderson32, KJ - and now all we get are token appearances by long timers. Makes me sad.
Juve v. Ajax
Liverpool v. Porto
Spurs v. Man City
Barça v. Man United
Did say anyone but City, Barca was the second worst team to face though. I'd say Pool get a bye basically though to semis where the face the Barca/United winner.
Juve/Ajax and Spurs/City should both be good, but I do expect chalk to prevail and a Juve/City semi final
Also, lost in the shuffle, but all 6 teams in Europe advanced to quarterfinals - first time in like 50 years or something like that. Should help the EPL coefficent quite a bit I'd think and restore order back to the world.
KJ/Monger vs. Guaranteed/Utah woulda been nice for the in-game.
