Why have i been knocked out of the Champions League?

7 posts in this topic

In my Fiorentina save, currently in my third season, me Bayern and Zenit all finished level on ten points in the group stages.

Bayern had better head to heads against both teams so they finish top. Me and Zenit both won a game against each other 2-0 which should cancel each other out. I have a far superior goal difference than Zenit yet I have still finished third.

Can anyone explain to me why this has happened?

Put a screen shot up.

It might then go on goals scored or goals scored away.. not sure really.

It's worked out on ALL the results between all three of you - not individual head to heads. So given that you and Zenit had a 2-0 against each other, it will mean that your results against Bayern were worse than Zenit;s results against Bayern.

When three teams finish level on points, the positions will be decided by results between all three teams. The results against the bottom team won't count towards this. If you were to draw up a mini league using just the results between yourself, Bayern and Zenit, you will probably see that you are bottom, hence your elimination

7.06 If two or more teams are equal on points on completion of the group

matches, the following criteria are applied to determine the rankings (in

descending order):

a) higher number of points obtained in the group matches played among the

teams in question;

b) superior goal difference from the group matches played among the teams

in question;

c) higher number of goals scored away from home in the group matches

played among the teams in question;

d) superior goal difference from all group matches played;

e) higher number of goals scored;

f) higher number of coefficient points accumulated by the club in question,

as well as its association, over the previous five seasons (see

paragraph 9.02).

the round of 16. The clubs that finish this stage in third position in their group

move into the round of 32 of the current UEFA Europa League. The clubs

that finish this stage in fourth position in their group are eliminated.

7.08 The four best third-ranked teams are seeded for the UEFA Europa League

c) higher number of goals scored

d) higher number of away goals scored
