Round 31 winner mionica joins the short prestigious list of predictors who have managed to claim a perfect matchday. The Romanian scored on all ten predictions and claimed bonus points for a correct scoreline prediction to claim one of the few remaining FIFA World Cup™ winner's jerseys.
Not even a fantastic 90 per cent return from each of the remaining names in the top five (mchemaly, bu-ba7-ba7, Catrach and wheatld) was enough to derail the Romanian.
Just two days after signing a one-year contract extension with Manchester United, veteran midfielder Paul Scholes blew the Barclays Premier League title race wide open with an injury time goal against Manchester City (53 points). United now trail Chelsea by a single point with only three games left.
In France, Bordeaux and Lyon battled it out to the bitter end in a 2-2 draw (73 points). The result does little for each team’s league title hopes, with Marseille now comfortable favourites to take the Ligue 1 title.
A second-half brace by Mirko Vucinic was enough to edge Roma 2-1 over Lazio (43 points). The result keeps Roma 1 point clear at the top of the Serie A.
Our featured J.League fixture provided the highest return this weekend. Gamba Osaka’s 1-1 draw with Shimizu S-Pulse returned 80 points and kept Shimizu’s seven-game undefeated streak in tact.
In Lithuania, FK Tauras notched up their third clean sheet in four games with a 0-0 draw against KFK Siauliai. The result returned 74 points.
Edson Buddle was the decisive factor in La Galaxy’s 2-1 win over Real Salt Lake (27 points). Buddle scored a brace to give Galaxy their fourth successive win.
Current No1 dannyvilla is soaking up the pressure as if it were sunshine as the finish line for Season 3 of FIFA World Leagues Predictor approaches. The top predictor once again enjoyed a strong round, returning 341 points – the third highest return for Round 31 from a member of the current top ten.
Not even a fantastic 384-point return from second-placed Stellar2Surf was enough to significantly dent the No1’s commanding lead at the top.
