## How points are scored

The point value of each of your predictions is determined using the
list below. Go down the list until you find the situation that describes
how your prediction compared with the actual score; that tells you how
many points you got. (In other words, it's not "check all that apply";
it's "check the first one that applies".)

- The predicted score is exactly correct: 5 points.
- The predicted result (ie. home win, draw, road win) is correct, and
the predicted goal difference is correct: 3 points.
- The predicted result is correct, and one of the two team scores is
correct: 3 points.
- Any other situation where the predicted result is correct: 2 points.
- The predicted result is wrong, but one of the two team scores is
correct: 1 point
- Anything else: 0 points.

Here are some examples of actual and predicted scores, and the points
they earn, so that you can see how the system works:

Actual Predicted Points
2-1 2-1 5
0-0 0-0 5
1-0 2-1 3
1-1 2-2 3
0-1 0-2 3
2-3 1-3 3
3-1 1-0 2
1-1 1-2 1
4-1 0-1 1
4-1 0-2 0
2-2 4-1 0
