FEWER than 50% of you survived Matchday 1 of my Bundesliga Last Man standing Competition at the weekend with RB Leipzig's 1-1 draw wiping out loads of entries who had chosen Julian Nagelsmann's side to take care of Freiburg.
However, 56 Members still remain in the competition. But remember, you CANNOT pick a team you've already chosen on a previous matchday – so choose wisely.
There were a few issues with duplicate comments last week, which we're still trying to resolve – apologies about that, but we did have a record of all entries in our back-end system (despite the issues with the front end). Admin will post a list of all Members that are still in the competition in the comments section. If you believe you should still be in the competition and your name is not listed then let us know in the comments section and we'll double-check.
How to Play
There are nine matchdays remaining in Germany so the competition will run from now until the end of the season. I've tweaked the rules from our usual Last Man Standing competitions so please make sure you understand the criteria below;
- You must pick one team to win each matchday (no draws allowed)
- You cannot pick a team you have already chosen in a previous matchday
- There are no second chances, if your team wins you progress to the next matchday, if it doesn't win you're out
- Submit your entry in the comments section below
I'm putting up a £100 prize pot which will be payable in cash via Paypal. It's a winner-takes-all competition however in the event that there are more than one member still in the competition at the end of Matchday 9 then the prize will be divided equally.
In the event that the Bundesliga is unable to be completed the competition will be voided.
