Europa League group play gets underway later today as Newcastle take on Maritimo in Portugal. Think you know what's going to happen? Get in the game and earn some bragging rights. Rules:

  • Before each Newcastle United match, predict the match winner (you may of course select "draw"), final score, and who the goal scorers will be. Also, make a choice on the prop bet (see below).
  • Deadline is five minutes before kickoff.

Points are assigned as follows:

  • Correct winner = 2 points
  • Correct score = 5 points (so correct score + correct winner = 7 total points)
  • 1/2 of correct score = 1 point
  • Predict total # of goals correctly = 1 point
  • Each goalscorer predicted correctly = 4 points
  • Each goalscorer predicted incorrectly = -1 point
  • Prop bet = +/- 1 point

A clarification on the last part: You don't lose points for failing to predict that Jonas Gutierrez would score in a given week. However, choosing Papiss Cisse will result in loss of a point if he fails to score. Your total score may not dip below 0 in any given week. The winner(s) of each round will get a point added to their total in the table.

This week's prop bet:

Over/under 6.5 corners for Newcastle
