In the second of our Round 2 previews for FIFA World Leagues Predictor, we take a closer look at matches in Brazil, Russia, Japan, England and France.

The derbies
Corinthians-Sao Paulo (Brazil)
Sao Paulo is the city to focus on this weekend for derby fans as local giants Corinthians and Sao Paulo contest another Classico Majestoso. Both teams will be looking to brush aside last weekend’s results - Corinthians went down 3-2 at Avai and Sao Paulo salvaged a 2-2 draw against Cruzeiro thanks to a last-gasp Ricardo Oliveira goal.  

Dynamo Moscow-Locomotiv Moscow (Russia)
With one game in hand, Dynamo Moscow have the chance to close the three-point gap between themselves and city-rivals Locomotiv Moscow on Sunday. Dynamo went down 2-0 at home to Locomotiv last season, but Locomotiv’s recent form on the road (five draws) suggests that this derby may be a tighter affair.

J-League
Albirex Niigata-Kawasaki Frontale (Japan)
Kawasaki Frontale are on a high after a sensational midweek performance that saw them overwhelm league leaders Nagoya Grampus by four goals to nil. Seventh-placed Albirex Niigata, who trail Frontale by four points will have to pull out something special if they plan to stop Frontale from pulling away. Counting in the home team’s favour is their visitors’ recent away-form record (Frontale have snatched only three points from five matches on the road of late).

Magpies face Villans
Newcastle United-Aston Villa (England)
Newcastle’s return to the top flight was marred by a heavy 3-0 loss against Manchester United in their opening game. The Magpies next challenge will be equally difficult; they face Aston Villa at home on Sunday. Villa were the third best team away from home last season, recording nine wins, nine draws and only five losses.

Dream start for Caen
Montpellier-Caen (France)
2009 Ligue 2 champion’s Caen have made their intentions clear in France’s top flight. 
Having defeated Marseille and Lyon in their first two games, Caen could not have wished for a better start to the season. Next, they will be looking for their first-ever league win against Montpellier. In their eight previous head-to-heads, Montpellier have won five and drawn three. The two sides' last meeting dates as far back as 1996, when they drew 0-0 in Montpellier.
