portugoal turns golden

In a dramatic turn of events, portugoal has overtaken ilirqorri, ending the Albanian's five-matchday run at the top of McDonald's FIFA World Cup Predictor. Going into the final two matchdays, portugoal carries a 110-point lead on his closest rival.

With a reasonable 60 per cent prediction accuracy, the new leader racked up 310 points this matchday. The Austrian predictor backed Venezuela to hold Brazil (92 points), Chile to oust Ecuador (41 points), Trinidad and Tobago to match Mexico (87 points) and Honduras to edge out El Salvador (49 points).

diegojuva held onto third place with a slim 148-point return, but faces intense pressure from below in the form of Walter33, Dedo27 and kompany, all of whom returned between 300 and 400 points this matchday. With the competition this tight, the McDonald's FIFA World Cup Predictor title looks set to be decided on the final matchday.
