Points table: I-League 2 Division Final Round

April 25, 2013 - I-League 2 Division Final Round



April 25, 2013
 
Langsning, Mumbai Tigers, and Southern Samity - no more in contention
 
To qualify for I-League...

Mohammedan Sporting - already through!
How? They're on 18 points with a match left. If they fail in their last match against Rangdajied (on Saturday 1.30 pm), they'll still be on 18, in that case Rangdajied will go on top of the table with 19 points. If the third best team, Bhawanipore, too wins, then Bhawanipore's point would be 17, and they still stay below Mohammedan Sporting. So, even after a making a worst speculation Mohammedan Sporting will be the second best team, and hence qualify for I-League

Bhawanipore MUST win against Mumbai Tigers (on Saturday 4 pm) and hope Rangdajied LOSE against Mohammedan Sporting (on Saturday 1.30 pm).

Rangdajied SHOULD win to make a safe passage to I-League. If Rangdajied DRAW against Mohammedan Sporting, the point of the both the teams will be equal - 17.

Now, head to head results will be taken into consideration. Interestingly, head to head results are identical, see here -
 - Leg 1 - April 2: Bhawanipore FC 1 (Jose Ramirez Barreto-90'+2') Vs Rangdajied United FC 0
 - Leg 2 - April 15: Rangdajied United FC 1 Vs Bhawanipore FC 0
Next is Goal Difference (GD)- till date GD too looks same - 4. Considering a team has to win and a team has to draw, same GD looks like a difficult preposition, however, this can still be a possibility.

So, What if the GD too is same?
Here's solution - if the goal difference is the same, the team with the higher number of goals scored will be placed higher.

AND, if still the winner cannot be decided, than the ranking will be decided by taking lots.
