The Bench Euros 2020 (taking place in 2021)

Recommended Posts

Greece rules in Bench Euro! The 3 Greek players (and 1/5!) qualified. I'm just sad I have to face my cousin in the quarter finals. Well, at least one family member will go to the semi finals.

Copy and paste time....

Quarter-finals

After the round of 16 matches....

The 8 winners of the Bench Cup continue to play for the Bench Cup

The 8 losers Of the Bench Cup continue to play for the Bench Bowl

The 8 winners (World Cup) / 4 winners (Euros) of the Bench Saucer continue to play for Bench Saucer. (NB for the Bench Euros, this is the 'Semi-finals of the Saucer', but the rules used are the same as below.)

 

The 8 losers (World Cup) / 4 losers (Euros) of the Bench Saucer are now out! No more games for them!

 

Before submitting his line-up for the quarter-finals, each player has his second substitute added to his playing squad.  This second substitute should be labelled (S2). No more additional teams will be added to the teams after this substitute for the remainder of the tournament!

 

The rules for the quarter-final matches are identical to the rules for the round of 16 matches.

I need to collect the list of penalty takers for the Semifinals (Finals of the Bench Saucer). As the rules are a bit different, due to fewer real matches being played, I am going to copy and paste the rules here. 

This is for the Semifinals (Saucer Finals), not the Quarterfinals (Saucer Semifinals), as I already have those.

 

 

Semi-final penalty takers
Players need to submit a list of all 8 teams still in the competition in order of likelihood that they will reach the finals.
If the team reaches the finals, it scores the equivalent of two penalties. If it loses in the semi-finals, it is just one penalty. The sudden-death element of the penalty shoot-out starts from the fourth selection onward.

If there is still a tie after all of that, the list of penalty takers submitted for the quarter-finals, and then the round of 16 will be used to continue the sudden death penalty shoot-out. Only teams reaching the finals will count- and will only score a single penalty.

If there is still a tie after that, then it is the player with the fewest red cards, then fewest yellow cards that progresses. After that, it is the player that did best in the group matches, that progresses. If still evenly matched, then, the player who has/had the lowest ranked ® team at the start of the tournament will progress.

For anyone missing the deadline, the first eight on list of penalty takers submitted/('droned') for the quarter-finals will be used - including any teams that have already been eliminated from the competition.

The deadline for submitting the semi-final penalty takers, is the kick-off time of the first match of the quarter-finals.

Okay, the penalty shoot-out between Furanohana and Chijanofuji....

England!

It's in!

4-3

Chijanofuji survives the penalty shoot-out, and is through to the Saucer semi-finals to face Kaba!

Wow, what a (virtual) match! (Applauding...)

I didn't really keep track of the outcome after England won, so I thought I was out for sure.... 

Furanohana was really unlucky there and I scraped through by the tiniest of margins!

Golden Boot Standings (after fourth match)

The big news is that after at least 6 hours of regular play, Chijanofuji managed to finally score his first goal in extra time. Watch him start scoring on a regular basis from now onwards ;-)

Meanwhile, despite not scoring any more goals, Pitinosato and Nantonoyama hold onto the top two spots. Atenzan is the biggest mover, and is now within catching distance in third place.

Every team has now conceded at least two goals. Athenayama has moved up into the top position. It's an impressive re-entry by Atenzan, who goes all the way to second position.

I've received picks from Kaba (c/- @Jejima) and @chishafuwaku .

@Chijanofuji and @Achiyama -- please have picks to me via direct message 30 mins before the first match kicks off.

All picks have been received for these matches. Due to the time difference I'll likely release lineups with the day 1 update (to allow time for any last minute changes from players).

Last call, less than 5 hours before the deadline. Maybe @Nantonoyama thinks he doesn't play anymore? Still waiting for your line up. :-)
