We also offer you the most sophisticated, punter-friendly league tables and the most detailed club records available anywhere on the net.

  1. WEEKEND PREVIEWS

KEY: The 49 main weekend Pools games come first, with the Pools No. first up. The next number in brackets is the number of weeks since that Pools No. gave a score-draw in the main weekend game. Figures in brackets after team names show how many score-draws that team has played this season. NB In the case of internationals, the figure is percentage of Group games score-drawn so far.  Letters before home team and after away team show current home or away record with the most recent result to the right. The first double, hyphenated numbers after away team’s sequence shows the current Soccerlotto/Daily Mail five match FORM of each side. This is followed by the difference between the current Racing and Football Outlook six match home FORM and six match away FORM figures – which we compile for them. In both cases, the FORM of opponents plus margins of defeat or loss are taken into account. For the Outlook Ratings +figures indicate home team supremacy and -figures away team superiority. A zero means the teams are level.
