In team sport, a long-distance duel is a situation in which a team is dependent on the result of another or even several other matches.

Long-distance duels occur most often at the end of the season when the important decisions are pending: the fight for the championship , for the places that qualify for the start in the European cup competitions , and for promotion to the next higher or relegation to the next lower league .
