Once again, it’s a battle between Hogwarts faculty members in this second round match-up of the Privet Drive division. Except this time, underdog Professor Flitwick — who surprisingly squeaked past the higher-seeded Professor Trelawney with little resistance in round one — has a steeper hill to climb as he faces Potions master and Dumbledore slayer (or is it euthanizer?) Severus Snape. Is the outcome of this battle already etched in blood, or does the Charms master have a chance?

(2) Severus Snape vs. (10) Professor Flitwick
The pint-sized Flitwick displayed great power and perseverance in his first round match-up against Divination expert Sybill Trelawney, but he’s going to have to dig much, much deeper if he wants to beat the solemn Severus Snape. Those who’ve read the books know that, hey, Snape isn’t such a bad guy after all, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a threat to take seriously. Indeed, in some circles, he’s considered a favorite to win the World Cup. With those kinds of odds in his favor, Snape’s bound to pose a particularly problematic dilemma for dear old Flitwick.
