What to do
-----------

Look at the fixtures below: do you play home or away? In any case:
remember that it's single-leg, and a draw qualifies the team with the X
on its side.

*Home*
- Before Wednesday 2021-10-20, 11:59 GMT
- Pick one team from each of the two matches, in order of preference

*Away*
- After Wednesday (or even sooner, if the home player has picked his
teams) and before kickoff of the first match
- Pick one of the teams not picked by your opponent (if he hasn't picked
any team, you have free choice)
- Their opponents will represent your opponent

(If the away player doesn't pick any team before his deadline, the home
player will be represented by his preferred team. If nobody picks a
team, teams are assigned randomly.)

The Doctor - Mark
Crystal Palace 1 - Newcastle X2
Bologna 1X - Milan 2

You couldn't put the Wolfsburg match among the Lassie choices????

Lassie is a saint and she prefers nice zebras to vicious snakes. I say that she votes:

1. Southampton
2. Juventus

Homer picks
1. Rennes
2. Bochum

Will he stand in the way of Futbolmetrix-milivella Round XXIV? (no I'm not sure that's the right number...)

Futbolmetrix:
Bochum = 0 FS picks
Eintracht = 4, including wretched Durm
Rennes = 3, including ungodly Doku
Strasbourg = 1

So, Watson, I pick Strasbourg.

Hope you have a good break. You can always draw up a contingency plan (such as: pick the two home teams, pick the teams ranked higher up in the table, pick the two teams that come first in alphabetical order...)

Results:

The Doctor 4 - 2 Mark (Milan 2-Bologna 1X)
Lassie 1* - 1 ixion martin (Juventus X2-Inter 1)
Jackson 0 - 2 Jesper Lauridsen (Wolfsburg 1-Freiburg X2)
Homer Simpson 1 - 0 milivella (Rennes 1-Strasbourg X2)

milivella chickens out of facing me in the QFs. ixion's elaborate contingent plan unfortunately is for naught. After fighting for the wooden spoon in the league, the BOTs make a comeback in the cup.

So the quarterfinals are:

Werner - The Doctor
Jesus Petry - Lassie
MH - Jesper Lauridsen
Futbolmetrix - Homer

Exactly. I did it on purpose! I would never lose a Ro16 match if I
played for real...

It is my fault. I forgot the cheating factor related to
Juventus history ;).
