This is by no means a scientific test but we thought it would be cute (adorable, precious, etc) to predict the outcome of Wigan versus Bolton using FIFA12 as a simulation engine. Nothing here is exact and keep in mind that FIFA12 is just a game, a fun one at that. The predicted lineups are as follows:

Bolton: Jussi Jaaskelainen, Paul Robinson, Gary Cahill, David Wheater, Dedryck Boyata, Martin Petrov, Fabrice Muamba, Nigel Reo-Coker, Gael Kakuta, Tuncay Sanli, and Kevin Davies

Wigan: Ali Al Habsi, Maynor Figueroa, Patrick van Aanholt, Gary Caldwell, Emmerson Boyce, Victor Moses, James McCarthy, Ben Watson, Mohamed Diame, Jordi Gómez, and Franco di Santo

Hit the jump to see how the virtual pie eaters and trotters got on:

1_medium

Wigan get it started

2_medium

SKD's header bangs off the crossbar early on

3_medium

Dedryck Boyata makes a crucial stop on Victor Moses' effort from 10 yards out

4_medium

David Wheater brings down Patrick van Aanholt in the box. Penalty to Wigan!

5_medium

Ben Watson sends the penalty down the middle with Jussi diving the wrong way and narrowly missing a kick save. 1-0 to Wigan. 

6_medium

SKD is clearly fouled in the box but (shocker) no call! 

7_medium

Gary Cahill's late header levels it! 1-1.

8_medium

Martin Petrov sends a perfect cross into the box in stoppage time but it's just behind SKD who fails to win it at the death. The match ends 1-1.

How do you think t'Classico will go?
