    The World Cup 2018 prediction competition

    Welcome all to the World Cup 2018 prediction competition. It's a slightly different format to the regular season's competition but the scoring system is the same. For those of you not familiar with the regular competition it's 3 points for a correct score and 1 for a correct result, with additional bonus predictions for other outcomes. Any amendment to your post after games have kicked off will make those results null and void.

    Groups A-D, Round 1:

    Russia v Saudi Arabia
    Egypt v Uruguay
    Morocco v Iran
    Portugal v Spain
    France v Australia
    Peru v Denmark
    Argentina v Iceland
    Croatia v Nigeria

    Two bonuses for this round, for the 3 point bonus predict which minute the opening goal of the tournament is scored (assuming you believe there will be one, otherwise predict no goal) in the Russia v Saudi Arabia game.

    For the 5 point tournament bonus predict how many goals will be scored in the entire tournament.

                            That's an average of almost three a match.

                            Hope you're right, AH.

                              I'm figuring VAR will either lead to loads of goals or very few, and I'm going with the former for no good reason
