Peter (Baku) predicted a 4-0 win to Denmark. I thought Wales would win...

I had Denmark winning by 2-0, so I'm 19/37 now,  just back above 50% (.514) as far as predicting the correct winners goes... ;-)

Cup Octofinals Match 7:

Pitinosato           0:1     Djodjoyoshi
(Netherlands)                (Poland)

Spain                 :      France
England               :      Germany
Ukraine               :      England (S1)

Austria ©         D   :   L  Wales
Switzerland           :      

Piti's Yokozuna stumbled and concedes an early goal, but a win by Netherlands can turn the game around instantly.


Cup Octofinals Match 8:

Andrasoyama          0:0     Athenayama
(Wales)                      (Belgium)

Portugal ©            :      Croatia
Wales ®           L  x:      Spain
Switzerland          x:   D  Austria

Nothing happened yet, but it looks like a small advantage for Andrasoyama.

Edit: funny that each match was a clash of intra-bouts on both sides.

Refioji Nekonishiki
Octofinal matches - Day 1

chishafuwaku vs Ganzohnesushi

Italy couldn't win in 90 minutes, but at least didn't lose, either, so no chain breaks in these early slots.
No goals yet, but there may be some tomorrow.

Actually the same could be written to the other match, too.

Atenzan vs Achiyama

Atenzan gets a draw in Slot #1. We'll have a result here tomorrow, too.
Achiyama's positioning is perfect so far.

Refioji Athenayama
Octofinal matches

Ojisan - Kuma-Koma :

Nothing conclusive yet but Italy's draw could cost to Ojisan later. Too bad Denmark is on his last slot.

  Ojisan H     Kuma-Koma A  
1. Sweden R   - Sweden N  
2. Belgium N   - Netherlands N  
3. Germany N   - Belgium N  
4. Italy N D - Spain N  
5. Croatia N   - Croatia R  
6. Denmark (S1) N W - Switzerland N  

Tomorrow Belgium for Ojisan, Belgium and The Netherlands for Kuma-Koma will fill our table a little more.

Jejima - Godango :

A good day for Godango and a less good for Jejima. The duel between Denmark and Wales went to the vikings giving a virtual advantage to Godango so far.

  Jejima H     Godango A  
1. Italy N   - Italy N  
2. Spain N   - Denmark N W
3. England R   - Sweden N  
4. Wales N L - Belgium (S1) N  
5. Ukraine N   - England C  
6. Belgium (S1) N   - Portugal N  
7. Switzerland N   - Switerland N  
8. Croatia N   - Austria N D

Tomorrow both players will closely watch Belgium vs Portugal.

Saucer Quarterfinals, upper half of Tableau after Day 1 Octofinals:

sorry, I forgot the comments :-S

Nekonishiki: What will be, will be

Baku: It's the round of 16!

 

image.png.9d3f78802da20ba751b434a31fbbc1aa.png

We will see what will be - right now there is not much to report for Nekonishiki

Shounokuni at least got a win with his C-Team in Slot #3 

Tomorrow 3 of 5 Teams of Neko are in action, especially slots #1 and # 2, for Shouno it's #4

Will there be already a decision after tomorrow matches ?

Or only a trend ?

 

image.png.aab9fc2c2ad245dd82b9e48dc488ef74.png

For Baku it is a round of 8 I think - but that doesn't matter

No goals yet, no chains broken

Tomorrow Bakus #1 will play, for Finngall it's #2 and #5

With the first 3 slots completed afterwards we will see how strong Bakus line-up is

Go, go, go!       And here comes the knock-out tournament! I didn't dare putting Italy at rank one, too much to lose if they draw... It gets exciting!    

Results After Day 1

Match 1

Wales loss means both teams are at risk of chain breakage -- Terarno relatively safely at slot 5, however for Fujiko the risk is in slot 2!

There'll be no major changes tomorrow with Belgium the only team in play.

Match 2

Italy's draw is Dangerous for @Nantonoyama, they'll need a Belgium loss tomorrow in order to keep their chain alive in Slot 2.

Wales loss puts @Joaoiyama at risk in slot 5.

Besides the high stakes Belgium vs Portugal match, tomorrow also sees Joaoiyama's Netherlands vs. Nantonoyama's Czech Republic.

A great commentary from Youri Mulder (former Schalke 04 and Netherlands striker) on the level of play between the Netherlands and the Czech Republic during half-time:  That first half was played at "amateur football level"... ;-)

And in my opinion he was 100% right!

Well, I'd say Denmark is still favourite in the upcoming quarterfinal. Neither the Netherlands nor Czechia should be able to stop them.

I'm with Jakusotsu. Watching NED-CZE (currently 0-1) I guess neither of these teams will survive vs. Danish Dynamite.

0-2. Looks like we'll never know whether the bookies would have been right.

Why F. DeBoer took Malen out after the red card for DeLigt remains his secrect. Wrong decision and bad coaching from my point of view. Moreover, there is no plan B, Netherland players were completely clueless.

At least they're consistent in their knock-out performance after a perfect group phase... (Beingthrowntomatoesat...)

Karma is a b**ch - Pitinosato's fate is the same as his R-Team's: perfect group stage, knocked out in the octofinals.

Now we only need Djodjoyoshi scoring another goal for a perfect resemblance.

WOOOW!!

The Flying Dutchmen screwed up so many of us!! Those who didn't have Netherlands on their squads are happy.

No, we won't. At least I was right in my prediction that the Netherlands were unlikely to progress beyond the round of 16, mainly due to their poor defense. Mind you, I had them finish 2nd in their group and going out at this stage against Italy and thought they may have good chance against the Czechs, but that's another matter... ;-)

I'm not so familiar with the rules of the Bench Euros. My understanding is that a draw or a loss of POR (R) will break Chishafuwaku's chain already in position 1. Then we will have a 0-0 draw after 90 minutes and it will be a 1-0 after extra time for me with ITA scoring a goal in position 1. Am I right?

Yes, but in this case the extra time will start in Slot #4, so you can score that goal if your chain will not break until then.

My chain is broken in slot #2 and if my opponents chain is broken already in slot #1 the result will be 0-0 as ITA-AUT was a draw after 90 minutes. But then - this is my understanding - the results after 120 minutes become relevant, i.e. 1-0 by ITA vs.POR in slot #1. I don't understand why slot #4 should come into play here at all...

Ganzohnesushi (currently playing a game where he obviously is not fully aware of the rules)

This is in the rules:
"Extra time starts with the next slot after the place where the second team to have their chain broken, was broken. (I.e. Player A's chain broke on the 2nd slot. Player B's chain broke on the 5th slot. Extra time for both players starts from the 6th slot.)...... "


Yours is broken in #2, so the start slot would be #3, but since that's removed (both of you have Spain there), it would start in #4. 
So it's not simply recalculating from #1, but from #4, using 120-minutes results this time (if there are).

All that trash talk about the English sumo commentators on NHK is moot. Just be glad you don't have to endure the public announcer in Sevilla stadium instead.

Wales ®           L  x:      Spain
Switzerland          x:   D  Austria

Still nothing substantial to report here apart from a shadow goal by Athenayama if his chain remains intact by slot 4.
