#FM17 Around the World Challenge #31 – Title Challengers?

From our last post, we were on top of the league by 6 points and the whole squad are starting to dream of winning an unexpected title. However, there was still a long way to go.

Our next five games were unbeaten, as the tactic seem to be effective regardless of the strength of the opposition. Just a shame we could only draw our away games, we could have extended our lead in the league. Unfortunately, in the next match, we hit a road bump when we lost 2-0 at home to AS Venus. It was not even a close game; we were completely outclassed.

We were now only two points ahead of them; could the hype train be on the brink of derailing?

Nope, the train resumed normally with 3 wins and a draw in the next 4 games. After most of our rivals had faltered, we were 7 points ahead of AS Venus now and an unassailable goal difference.

In the next game, we were brought back down to earth by a shocking 4-2 loss to AS Tefana but I had received news that we had reached the playoffs.

I then decided to rotate the squad in the last three games. Somehow, we managed to stay unbeaten and finished the season on 83 points, 6 points ahead of AS Venus.

The table above also shows the teams that were involved in the playoffs. Apparently, in the semi-final stage, the first-placed team plays the fourth-placed team and the second and third-placed teams play with each other.

Unfortunately, this meant that we had to play AS Tefana again and I was not feeling confident of this tie. We had lost heavily against them the last time and I needed to make sure our defence would be able to handle their firepower.

Could this be my chance of winning a significant silverware?

Well, that’s all for now but I might record the playoffs and post it on YouTube in a separate post. If not, it will just be another text post like this one. Until then!


The database I used for this save is the  FM17 Megapack 210 Updates by claassen . The one in the link does have more nations to choose from than the one in the save.
