In the following football table and addition sum letters have been substituted for digits (from 0 to 9). The same letter stands for the same digit wherever it appears and different letters stand for different digits.

The three teams are eventually going to play each other once — or perhaps they have already done so.

(Two points are given for a win and one point to each size in a drawn match).
