Nacional v. Libertad – Round 8 of the Paraguayan Clausura sees Libertad defend the unofficial Club World Championship against strugglers Nacional.

Anderlecht v. Club Brugge – Two of the strongest sides in Belgium get together with Anderlecht looking to stretch their two point lead at the top of the table.

Lille v. Bordeaux – The other teams from France that qualified for the Champions League meet as they hope to topple the Lyon dynasty.

Cardiff v. Birmingham City – The top two teams in the Championship face off at Ninian Park. The Bluebirds will be hoping to continue their surprise start and perhaps spring a shock promotion bid from a win here. The Blues will hope that loan signing Nicklas Bendtner can continue to score the goals their strikers couldn’t last season.
