    Five teams play in a football tournament

    Every team plays every other team. Each match is equally likely to be won by either team (a draw cannot happen) independently of the outcome of the other matches. Find the probability of the (one) event that, at the end of the tournament, each team has won precisely two matches.

    Anyone got any ideas to solve this? Been scratching my head for a while now.
