With a one week recess due to FIFA World Cup™ qualifying forthcoming, the contenders will be eager to score big in Round 28 of the FIFA World Leagues Predictor.
Match of the week: Penarol-Defensor (Uruguay)
Montevideo is set to light up this weekend as two clubs from the Uruguayan capital collide. Current champions Defensor visit Penarol, the nation's most successful club with 36 league titles. Both teams are undefeated in the Clausura 2009, with Penarol leading by virtue of goal difference.
Despite their mid-table status, Tottenham Hotspur have an undefeated record against England's so-called 'big four' this season. Fresh from defeating Aston Villa, they now have the chance to cause another upset when Chelsea visit White Heart Lane. A Spurs victory would return 88 points.
In La Liga, sixth-placed Malaga face the arduous task of attempting to win at Camp Nou, a feat which rock-bottom Espanyol managed just a few weeks ago. Ninety-seven points is what a Barcelona defeat would be worth.
Too close to call: Roma-Juventus (Italy)
Sixth-placed Roma host runners-up Juventus in Serie A. Roma are undefeated at home in their last six games and could put a spanner in La Vecchia Signora's title chase. This fixture may be too close to call, but a draw is the least likely result at 30 per cent probability.
Major League Soccer 2009 begins this weekend, and what better way to start than with a big derby. The rivalry between FC Dallas and Chicago Fire is so fierce, in fact, that the winners receive the Brimstone Cup.
In Tunisia, current league champions Club Africain are at home to two-time CAF Confederations Cup winners CS Sfaxien. Despite their dominance in African competitions Sfaxien have not won a domestic league title since 2005, and a win at Club Africain could do wonders for their latest title race. A Sfaxien win is 15 per cent likely and returns 85 points.
The Statistic: The three Uruguayan clubs from the capital (Nacional, Defensor, Penarol) are the only teams still undefeated in Uruguay's 2009 Clausura.
