I'm confused by having one html form, but expecting Struts to populate
two beans.  AFAIK, it's one-to-one with the html form and the ActionForm
instance (the form bean).  After that, you can do what you like in the
Action to populate whatever you need.

So you might have properties such as homeTeamId and awayTeamId in your
form bean.  You probably won't be able to use the magic
BeanUtils.copyProperties() but instead will have to write code to
populate your homeTeam and awayTeam beans from the values in the form

So I see it going:
Html form -> ActionForm/Action -> populate custom beans -> forward to
