Things are heating up in FIFA World Leagues Predictor as we approach the Round 35 finish-line. The matches are getting more exciting and the predictions tougher. Round 28 - the eighth remaining round of the season - takes place over the coming weekend and ushers in a short break for international football. After the coming weekend, FIFA World Leagues Predictor will resume with Round 29 on 2 April.

Classic derby
Atletico Madrid-Real Madrid (Spain)
Real Madrid finally broke their Round of 16 curse on Tuesday, defeating Lyon to progress into the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League for the first time in seven years. Atletico Madrid will be looking to break a jinx of their own on Saturday when they host their city-rivals; Atletico have not beaten Los Merengues in a league match in over a decade.

Match of the week
Chelsea-Manchester City (England)
Sunday’s match between Chelsea and Manchester City is a vital one in their respective campaigns to play UEFA Champions League football next season. City managed a league double against Chelsea last season, winning 2-1 at home and 4-2 at Stamford Bridge. Mancini’s men also beat Chelsea 1-0 earlier this season and are on the verge of recording a second double against the Blues. Will they prove to be Chelsea's bogey team once again or can the defending champions brush aside Mancini’s men?
