Key Stat: Levante have won one of their last 14 fixtures

Expert Verdict: Sociedad started the weekend as the fourth-highest scorers in La Liga and their attacking prowess can give them the advantage against fellow strugglers Levante. The free-scoring Basques were 5-0 victors at home to Deportivo in their last home league game and can produce another big performance to avoid any chat about a relegation scrap.

Recommendation: Sociedad

Key Stat: Torino have lost one of their last 14 league matches

Expert Verdict: orino have claimed three wins and two draws since appointing former Watford manager Walter Mazzarri earlier this year and can extend their unbeaten run to six with a stalemate against neighbours Juventus. The recent improvement from Torino poses a problem for Juve, who looked a tired bunch during the second half of their 2-2 draw at home to Tottenham on Tuesday.

Recommendation: Draw

Key Stat: Nice have not drawn any of their last 14 home matches

Expert Verdict: These two sides are both struggling for wins but it may pay to back the best player on the pitch to make a difference - step forward the red-hot Mario Balotelli. Super Mario has scored 20 times in just 25 appearances this season and can take advantage of a Nantes side who have surprisingly shipped five times in their last two outings.

Recommendation: M Balotelli first goalscorer

Key Stat: Stuttgart are yet to win away from home this season

Expert Verdict: Augsburg have lost only two matches at home this season so it would be no surprise if they were to add to their victory tally against struggling Stuttgart. The visitors are just about above the Bundesliga relegation zone but that's down solely to their home form. They've picked up 22 of their 24 points at the Mercedes-Benz Arena so look worth taking on once again.

Recommendation: Augsburg

Key Stat: Atletico Madrid have won three of their last five games 1-0

Expert Verdict: Atletico Madrid are the only team with any chance of rivalling Barcelona for the La Liga title and they can remain in the hunt with a victory against Athletic Bilbao at the Wanda Metropolitano. The Basque club are among the lowest scorers in La Liga and, given Atleti's fabled defensive qualities, this might not be the most high-scoring encounter. Expect them to win by a small margin.

Recommendation: Atletico Madrid to win 1-0

Key Stat: Tottenham have scored at least two goals in ten of their last 12 FA Cup ties

Expert Verdict: Tottenham got a taste of lower-league life at Newport in the last round and they will have plenty of squad players desperate to show what they can do. One to look out for could be Moussa Sissoko, who has improved a great deal this season and this is the sort of game in which the bustling Frenchman can find the net.

Recommendation: M Sissoko first goalscorer
