The Predict the World Cup scoring system works as follows:
The following examples show the points you would score in a theoretical game between Brazil and Korea DPR. The bonuses would depend on how other people in the league predicted - but the majority would normally predict a Brazil win. Notice how the number of bonus points you score rises if you correctly predict unlikely scorelines.
If two people are level on points their position in the table will be determined by goal difference
Please Note: In the event of a penalty shoot out in the later rounds, the final score will be considered to be the score at the end of extra-time. So it is possible that games after the group stage can end in a draw for the purposes of this game.
