A correct score prediction between Southampton and Liverpool took our challenger, Shree Krishna Pokharel, to victory right at the death last weekend. So the Rest of the World edge closer to Dale Johnson at the top!
A slightly shorter round this week as two games have been postponed due to the Capital One Cup final. Representing the ROTW is Saurav B. Pant who comes from Kathmandu in Nepal.
Saurav tells Showdown: "I'm a 24-year-old Manchester United fan from Nepal, working as marketing assistant in a multinational company.
"Football in our country is the most passionate game and as the great Pele once said 'IT'S A BEAUTIFUL GAME.'
"We have grown up playing football in our backyards and supporting our club. Late nights, football, our club and beer is our weekend schedule. From work places to colleges to friends football is our topic of choice."
OK, let's play!

For each round of matches we invite someone to represent the Rest of the World and take on ESPN FC TV's Tommy Smyth and ESPN FC journalist Dale Johnson in our predictions game.
Points are then awarded as follows:
- Three points for a correct result and scoreline
- One point for a correct result
After the weekend's scores are in and the Showdown result has been worked out, the winning pundit receives three points for their season's total. Should the challenger win, the total is added to the Rest of the World tally. In the case of a draw, the points are shared.
