The Round 12 menu presents some prickly choices for predictors. Which way will the Milan derby swing? Who will get cut from the title chase in Brazil? Answers these questions correctly and you could be on your way to winning Round 12 of the FIFA World Leagues Predictor.

San Siro hots up
Internazionale-AC Milan (Italy)
The latest Milan derby has the potential to be a classic with the city rivals ensconced in the title chase. Inter are carrying a staggering injury list with their defence worst hit (Julio Cesar, Maicon and Walter Samuel), while things are also bleak in the midfield (Thiago Motta, Esteban Cambiasso and Wesley Sneijder are all sidelined). AC Milan will be looking to seize the advantage and could put a four point cushion between themselves and third-placed Inter if they can grab a win.

Contenders clash
Corinthians-Cruzeiro (Brazil)
With only four games to go in the Brasileirao, second-placed Corinthians face third-placed Cruzeiro with the sides locked on points and trailing leaders Fluminense by only one point. This fixture could very well cut the title contenders from three to two.

Soweto derby
Orlando Pirates-Kaizer Chiefs (South Africa)
The Soweto Derby steals the show in South Africa this weekend. Both sides are enjoying a good run of form with second-placed Chiefs the only remaining undefeated team in the 2010/11 South African Premiership having conceded just one goal in their opening six games. Pirates, currently sitting in third place, rebounded from a home defeat to Mpumalanga Black Aces by thrashing Ajax Cape Town 3-0 last Saturday.

Sticky test for the Gunners
Everton-Arsenal (England)
Arsenal will be looking to recover from a shock defeat to Newcastle last weekend when they visit Everton. The Toffees, who are only four points clear of the drop zone, will not be an easy obstacle to overcome at home as they have proved against the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United already this season.

Asian hopefuls
Kawasaki Frontale-Kashima Antlers (Japan)
With just five rounds remaining of the J.League season, this weekend's fixtures are highlighted by the reigning champions meeting last season’s runners-up. While a league title may be realistically out of Kawasaki Frontale’s grasp, they need to remain in the top four if the want to qualify for the 2010 AFC Champions League. The pair drew 1-1 at Todoroki Athletics Stadium last season.

Strugglers meet
Wolfsburg-Schalke (Germany)

While Wolfsburg and Schalke have enjoyed their respective successes in the past two Bundesliga seasons, both sides have been struggling through the 2010/11 campaign. Wolfsburg are hovering only four points clear of the drop zone, while Schalke are stuck third from the bottom in 16th place. The two last meet at Wolfsburg in early 2010 with the hosts winning 2-1 thanks to a late Grafite brace. Their Bundesliga head to head record stands at Wolfsburg eight wins and Schalke six, with 12 matches drawn.
