jrmurillo has claimed Round 11 by a 56-point margin. In second-place, croata will be cursing his predictions in Ecuador and Australia. Had he backed either Deportivo Cuenca or Central Coast Mariners to win, the Venezuelan would have won the round and with it a signed FIFA World Cup™ winner's jersey.

In third place on 500 points, KARAMELLA was denied victory in the most dramatic of fashion. Atletico Madrid launched a final surge on Real Madrid's 3-0 lead, scoring two goals in two minutes towards the end of the match. The last ten minutes of play were a tense affair, but ultimately Real Madrid came out on top. Had Atletico clinched a last-minute draw, the Egyptian predictor would have won the matchday.

Weekend highlights
Of the top three KARAMELLA was the only man to back massive underdogs Central Coast Mariners for the win. The Mariners did not disappoint, humbling current A-League champions Melbourne Victory by four goals to nil. In Costa Rica, an 85th-minute goal decided the outcome of the Perez Zeledon-Santos encounter. The Perez Zeledon victory shocked most predictors, returning a massive 90 points.

The Dinamo Bucuresti-Rapid Bucuresti fixture gave many Romanian football fans heart palpitations. Rapid Bucuresti opened the scoring in the second minute, leading for most of the match only to have Dinamo Bucuresti's Claudiu Niculescu slip one past goalkeeper Mircea Bornescu in the 89th minute. The result returned 78 points.

In Bosnia-Herzegovina, newly-promoted Borac Banja Luka continued their impressive run this season, dispatching a formidable Velez Mostar team 2-0. The result was Borac's 9th win from 13 games. In the Bundesliga, Schalke 04 and Bayern Munich neutralized one another for most of the 90 minutes. The 1-1 draw returned 78 points.

A king for a queen
What goes up must come down. Hoiman17 was once again ousted from the summit, this time by a lady from Portugal. MatiasTeam is the new No1, but how long will the Queen reign for? There's also a new name in second-place; dannyvilla returned his second-best score of the 11 rounds to muscle his way into the No2 spot. Despite the coup at the top, third-placed 689908manutd bravely holds onto his position this matchday.
