After the short break for all the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ qualification action, World Leagues Predictor hits the ground running as Round 29 approaches. Here's a look at the big games.
Match of the week: Gimnasia (La Plata) - Estudiantes (La Plata)
Gimnasia host Estudiantes at El Bosque in the latest instalment of Argentina's La Plata derby. Estudiantes may be third from the bottom but they still hold an edge over Gimnasia in derby wins. Will Estudiantes suffer their fifth loss in eight games, or will sixth-placed Gimnasia be dragged down the table by their local rivals? The numbers can't help you on this one; Estudiantes are at 35 per cent to win and Gimnasia at 34 per cent to win.
Longshot of the week: Manchester United-Aston Villa
Football fans the world over will turn their attention to Old Trafford this weekend to see if Manchester United will stay the course or stumble in their bid for the 2009 English Premier League crown. Facing United is a Villa team that are desperate to snatch the last available UEFA Champion's League qualification place. A win for the Villains would return an astounding 93 points, not to mention a few cheers from Liverpool fans over at Anfield.
Other big games
In Bosnia-Herzegovina, Sloboda Tuzla host HSK Zrinjski. Undefeated at home in their last five games, third-placed Sloboda Tuzla are favourites to topple the league leaders.
In the German Bundesliga, Hoffenheim have a chance to close in on third-place Hamburg, but they will have to turn around a five-match draw streak to do so. Can they do it? Chances are slim for Hoffe at 18 per cent to win.
In South Korea, Suwon Samsung Bluewings travel to FC Seoul. The two teams met twice in December 2008, (FC Seoul won at home and drew away). Can the reigning K-League champions regain some pride against FC Seoul? Bluewings fans yell "yes" - the numbers, though, say "not likely".
After this weekend, you only have only eight rounds left to win a signed FIFA World Cup winner's jersey. Take your time, and do your homework.
