Daniel and Torres in the spotlight

DanielOlaf (aka Daniel Gomez) is still on top of the overall leaderboard. With a 95-point edge over closest chaser Eyinmisan of England by way of Nigeria, the Mexican is in first place for the fourth consecutive week and hasn't relinquished his crown in ten of the last eleven weeks.

But now is not the time for the rest of you to get demoralised. Even if you are hundreds of points off the high-flying top marksmen, one good week is all that stands between you and contention. Also top spot for Round 21, as always, brings with it a signed jersey of the FIFA World Cup™-winning player of your choosing.

With a slate of hot contests on offer, you should be doing your homework now in preparation for Friday's fast-approaching deadline. Liverpool will be heading to Newcastle United with coach Rafa Benitez hoping red-hot Spanish striker Fernando Torres can lay claim to his third hat trick of the campaign, and his second in four days, at an increasingly disillusioned St James Park.

Also in England, Martin O'Neill's Aston Villa will host Boro with fifth-place on their minds and a place in Europe for next season as the ultimate goal for the resurgent side from Birmingham. On Spanish soil, FC Barcelona will be hoping to overcome the loss of midfield maestro Lionel Messi midweek and avenge last weekend's loss to Atletico Madrid when the Yellow Submarine of Villarreal come calling at the Camp Nou.

In Germany Stuttgart will host Werder Bremen while Parma hope to cut into Sampdoria over on Italian soil.

Round 21 games - 8 & 9 March:
Liverpool-Newcastle (England)
Barcelona-Villarreal (Spain)
Stuttgart-Werder Bremen (Germany)
Marseille-Saint-Etienne (France)
Genclerbirligi-Besiktas (Turkey)
Panionios-PAOK (Greece)
Charleroi-Anderlecht (Belgium)
Aston Villa-Middlesbrough (England)
Parma-Sampdoria (Italy)
Real Zaragoza-Atletico Madrid (Spain)

The winner for the round picks up a signed jersey of the FIFA World Cup™ winner of his choosing and the top picker at the end of the season will be on his way to a FIFA World Cup group game in South Africa in the summer of 2010.

Even if you missed out on the opening rounds, sign up now and join the fun! Prove that you have got what it takes to knock ace picker and seemingly eternal top-dog DanielOlaf off his perch and pick yourself up some hot prizes in the process.

The selection deadline for Round 21 is Friday midnight GMT.
