You vs. the editors - Scores of match days 20 and 21

Since we did not find the time to present you the scores for the last two match days, we will now analyse the match days 20 and 21 in one. Remember that you and the readers need to win some points over us editors since we are up front with 12 to seven before match day 20. First, let us have a look at match day 20 where Veramariko faced Kenny from Scotland who managed to beat the editors earlier this season. Let's have a look at Kenny's predictions and the actual results. Three points were given for predicting the exact result, two points for picking the right goal difference and one point for guessing the right winner (or a draw).

Not too bad. Predicting the right result for HSV - Hertha gave Kenny enough to be of a challenge for Veramariko. Let's see how she did against the man from Scotland.

Predicting three right winners was not enough for Veramariko. Kenny strikes against the editors for the second time this season, shortening the lead to 12 to 8. However, let's take a quick look at match day 21 where Veramariko faced James:

4 Points would have been enough for the victory the week before, but also this week? Not an easy match day to predict, so let's see if Veramariko could make up for her loss on match day 20.
