ok, silly question.
rules say i have to pick teams worth £49 or less
i have to pick one team from each group
and my 4 teams must come to 49 or less.
i assume that should be 8 teams come to 49 or less

Yes it's 8 teams, I think it's a legacy from the euro where there only are 4 groups.
Thanks for your PMs !
