Yet another win for Dale Johnson last week means Tommy Smyth's hopes of sitting on top of the table at Christmas are hanging by a thread.
There's just one round to go before the festivities commence, and Tommy remains 1.5 points ahead. The less said about the Rest of the World's points tally the better.
Looking to reverse the ROTW's fortunes this weekend is Hugo Peebles and we're staying here in London.
Hugo tells ESPNsoccernet: "I'm a 30-year-old radiographer from London. A life long Chelsea fan I've been getting more interested in European football recently, especially the French league."
Let's check out those predictions.
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.
No points picked up at Eastlands, so Hugo gets the ROTW back to winning ways - and Tommy is top at Christmas!
Table after Round 18
Rest of the World: 10.5
Best week's total of season so far: 13, Bob McFarland.
