The second round of the Harry Potter World Cup is currently underway, and it’s kicking off with the Privet Drive division. After eliminating his “Sorcerer’s Stone” nemesis Professor Quirrell in the first round, Harry Potter is looking to do equal amounts of damage to “Chamber of Secrets” villain Lucius Malfoy. But does the Death Eater have some tricks up his sleeve?

Voting for all second round match-ups will close on Friday, July 1 at 12:01 AM EST, so make sure to start voting now. You can follow all of the duels right here.

(1) Harry Potter vs. (8) Lucius Malfoy
Harry had no trouble putting an end to Professor Quirrell’s chances at resurrection and World Cup glory, but will the road be as easy when facing Lucius Malfoy? As the father of his number one Hogwarts rival and one of Voldemort’s closest allies, Lucius has certainly earned his dangerous reputation. If the Slytherin-loving “Potter” fans come out in full force to support the Death Eater, then perhaps this is the place where the platinum blonde wizard will claim Harry’s head for his Dark Lord’s wall.
