When they were kids

Carlsen v Karjakin kicks off in a few hours. For the first game I will probably just follow in on a non-official site, but I will probably shell out for the on site coverage at some point. As for my predictions, I think it will be a Carlsen victory, by a 2 point margin.
As a warm up, here is game played when both players were a lot younger. Although it was in the Corus B event, it was clear to most pundits that both players were destined for bigger things.

Carlsen,M (2553) - Karjakin,Sergey (2599) [A35]
