|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Man City||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Man City have won two of their last nine Champions League home matches
Expert Verdict: It’s been another sorry Champions League campaign for Manchester City and Bayern Munich are unlikely to show them mercy despite having already qualified for the last 16. Bayern have won 11 of their last 12 matches, while City must try to cope without suspended duo Fernandinho and Yaya Toure.
Recommendation: Bayern Munich
REFEREE: Pavel Kralovec STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Schalke||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Chelsea are unbeaten in 18 matches this season
Expert Verdict: Schalke boss Roberto Di Matteo faces his former club but it’s unlikely to be a happy ending for the Italian. Chelsea barely got out of first gear when beating West Brom 2-0 and can enjoy themselves against a shaky Schalke defence which has conceded seven goals in the last two Champions League matches.
REFEREE: Jonas Eriksson STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Arsenal||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Arsenal have kept two clean sheets in their last 11 fixtures
Expert Verdict: Two teams who are close to a crisis domestically meet in the Champions League and backing goals looks to be the best bet. Arsenal’s defence continues to leak far too many goals, including 2-0 in Dortmund on matchday one, but the Germans have been shocking in the Bundesliga and will struggle to keep a clean sheet.
Recommendation: Both teams to score
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Ludogorets||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Liverpool have won one of their last seven matches
Expert Verdict: Things go from bad to worse for Liverpool and the misery may not be close to ending for Brendan Rodgers with Bulgarian minnows Ludogorets fancied to pull off an upset. The Merseysiders have lost five of their last seven matches and look nothing like the team who finished second in last season’s Premier League.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Din. Moscow||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Panathinaikos have failed to keep a clean sheet in six Europa League games this season
Expert Verdict: Dynamo Moscow beat Panathinaikos 2-1 in Greece and they should be backed to complete the double over their opponents. The Panathinaikos defence has struggled in European competition, conceding eight goals in four group matches, and they are unlikely to frustrate Dynamo, who have beaten PSV and Estoril at home in the Europa League.
Recommendation: Dynamo Moscow
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Feyenoord||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Feyenoord have kept four consecutive clean sheets
Expert Verdict: Seville have hit a rough patch after a fine start to the season and, following a thumping 5-1 at Barcelona last time out they face a tricky trip to Feyenoord. The Dutch side lost 2-0 in Seville in September but they are a solid unit who have suffered one defeat in their last nine games, beating Standard Liege and Rijeka on their own patch in this competition.
