The four teams Alphas, Betas, Gammas and Deltas are part way through their football season, in which each plays each of the others once. Part of the league table (with the teams in decreasing order) is given below with digits consistently replaced by letters. Three points are awarded for a win and one for a draw.
There’s only one entry in Alpha’s row — and that’s wrong! It should in fact be lower than the entry implies. Luckily the rest is right.
List the matches played so far and the score in each.
