|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Rochdale||Recent Form|
Expert Verdict: Nottingham Forest and Leeds have both suffered humbling FA Cup exits at Spotland in the last two seasons and Rochdale could also give Stoke a fright. After a minor wobble, Dale have rediscovered their form, winning three successive matches, and they have the quality to get on the scoresheet which could be enough to force a replay.
REFEREE: Martin Atkinson STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Empoli||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Udinese have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last seven Serie A away games
Expert Verdict: Empoli have drawn ten of their 19 league matches this season but can ease their relegation fears with a home victory over Udinese. All of Empoli's last three home games have finished goalless but they can find their shooting boots against the Zebras, who have not kept a Serie A clean sheet since October.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Napoli||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Napoli have scored two or more goals in 11 of their last 12 home matches
Expert Verdict: Napoli were taken to penalties by Udinese on Thursday but Rafa Benitez rotated his squad for that match and they should be more comfortable against out-of-form Genoa. After a bright start the visitors are winless in five and they could ship a few goals against a team who score plenty at home.
Recommendation: Napoli to win 3-0
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Pacos Ferreira||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Benfica have won 19 of the last 20 meetings between the sides
Expert Verdict: Benfica have been almost foot-perfect in the Primeira Liga this season and they can notch a sixth straight away victory at free-falling Pacos Ferreira, who have lost five of their last seven. Eduardo Salvio has been on impressive goalscoring form with three goals in his last two appearances and he can get in on the act once more.
Recommendation: E Silva first goalscorer
