The Simple Weekend (Internationals)

The international break is always a barren time for football but Brazil did beat Argentina last night in a decent game.

The European qualification is so diluted that you rarely get a decent match between big teams.

There are no international stats on the site and was looking round for international ratings and found an article on the Pinnacle website that goes through international ratings before Euro 2016 started and is quite interesting. Another article on the Rostrum goes into FIFA rankings and compares them to ELO to see which could be better.

The lower leagues all have matches and we have stats for those as per usual and will be back with a bigger weekender next time.

Champions League: Matchday 1 – Roundup

Sneaked a profit with the draw in the Roma v Barca match but not worth sliding on the floor about. Looked like the City v Juventus game was also heading to a draw and that would have been very good.
