I just dont get it.

1 Liverpool 5 3 2 0 6 1 5 11
2 Chelsea 5 3 1 1 7 1 6 10
3 Real Betis 5 2 1 2 3 6 -3 7
4 Anderlecht 5 0 0 5 0 8 -8 0

We (CFC) are 3 points ahead of Real Betis, but if they beat Anderlecht and LFC beat CFC in theory CFC could still not go through? OK so Real have to make up 9 goals, but if the last two games ended 5 - 0 doesn't that mean CFC are out, or is there some other weird quailifying criteria? Both Sky and BBC are saying CFC are through. What if LFC beat CFC 1 - 0 and the Real do Anderlecht 9 - 0?

I am happy mate, but is it a 100% done deal, or only 99.9%?

Normally the TV stations will point out a 10-0 win could change things, but this time they haven't. Is it because we beat Real Betis 4-1 on aggregate, and therefore if we end up on the same points we still finish above them regardless of goal difference?

I assume by the lack of replies that nobody knows the answer???

Cheers...

PS. I'm not paranoid, they really are after me.

I was thinking the same...seems strange everyone says we are into the 16.
Any ideas?

Spanked them 4-0 @ Bridge, lost 1-0 away. I'll take that.

Im as mystified as you. According to the UEFA rulebook its points scored and then goal difference.

See page 7 paragraph 4.05 here: http://www.uefa.com/newsfiles/19071.pdf (the sods have disabled the copy feature otherwise I would have posted the relevant paragraph here)

So technically once weve beaten the scousers 5-0 a 15-0 victory for Real over Anderlecht would see them through :D


P.S. Nice to see so many Blues on here :thumbsup:
