Fictional extra time of course came about in Season 2 of Top 100 in order to provide a means of finding a fair winner in cup fixtures within such tournaments as the Top 100 Youth Cup & the Top 100 World Championship whereby arranging additional fixtures / replays was not feasible due to time available to complete the competitions within the 38 game week season.
Recently brought up by Broon, the debate now is the method of deciding victors in games drawn in future competitions in the knockout stages of those competitions.
There are currently 2 ideas suggested for deciding these games;
1: Average Rating Totals
Using the recent Top 100 Youth Cup final 2nd leg game as an example to explain this you have a game that was drawn 3-3. If this were a 1 leg match the average rating totals would have scored as follows;
Juventus score 71 from the first 11 as of course the clubs might have used a different number of players during the game meaning that subs would create an unfair advantage.
Lokomotiv Moscow score 70 from the first 11 meaning that in total Juventus would be awarded the game based on the ‘better performance’ of their starting 11 players.
The pros here are as the above point suggests, the first 11 of Juventus scored higher as a whole despite drawing the game & ‘performed better’ however the cons are that Juventus had K.Coman sent off after 58 minutes meaning his rating was not scored over 90 minutes & neither were the subs. Additionally some players leave the field of play later or sooner than others & therefore it is not a completely fair contest.
2: Match Stat Criteria
The method adapted in season 2 where by an odd number of criteria were suggested as providing random but fair means of deciding a winner of the game.
Again using the same match as was used in the above example for Average Rating Totals we have the match stats from that game;
Any further suggestions for methods on deciding winners in tied knockout stage cup games are welcome!
