Portugal's TunelTeam and Malian kamisdne both returned 579 points, finishing in joint-first place in Round 33 of the FIFA World Leagues Predictor. However, due to her higher overall score, a signed FIFA World Cup™ winner's jersey is on its way to the former.
Central to the pair's success were a series of draws, which earned them significant points. Indeed, the Marseille-Toulouse, Guadalajara-Puebla and Hamburg-Hertha Berlin stalemates were worth 87, 81 and 80 respectively. The round's top two also successfully backed home teams in the featured Italian and South African derbies. TunelTeam almost lost out courtesy of Barcelona's victory over Real Madrid, but kamisdne was ultimately undone by MyPa-Inter Turku result.
Gonjan finished eight points back in third. Had the Argentinian backed Genoa or FC Seoul to win their respective home matches, he would have emerged triumphant.
Kammer comes alive
Overall leader Saururrex returned the second-lowest score from the top ten this round, sliding him dangerously close to his nearest rival. Runner-up kammer registered an impressive 341 points and is now only 59 points off the pace. The German corrected anticipated draws in the featured games in France, Germany and Mexico.
Meanwhile, Colombians Phio79 and OARCHILA moved into third and fourth place respectively, and are just over 400 points behind Saururrex.
Only four rounds remain and there is much to play for, with a crop of predictors still involved in the title race and the rest competing to win a signed FIFA World Cup winner's jersey. Do you have what it takes?
