The second round duel between old foes Molly Weasley and Bellatrix Lestrange was easily one of the hardest fought battles of the entire Harry Potter World Cup. Now, the dust has cleared, and history has been rewritten: Bellatrix moves on to the next round of the tournament. But is the wicked witch’s bloodbath about to end at the hands of Draco Malfoy?

Voting for all Sweet 16 duels closes on Wednesday, July 6 at 12:01 AM EST, so make sure to start voting now. You can follow all of the action right here.

(1) Draco Malfoy vs. (4) Bellatrix Lestrange
Despite his number one ranking, Slytherin student and longtime Potter rival Draco Malfoy hasn’t had an easy go of it in the World Cup so far. He struggled against Peeves the Poltergeist and got off to a tough start against “Goblet of Fire” veteran Fleur Delacour. Now, he faces his toughest opponent yet in the form of Bellatrix. This could very well be the end of the line for Draco‚Ķ unless you, the voters, rally behind the two-time MTV Movie Awards Best Villain.
