|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at W Bremen||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Both teams have scored in eight of Bremen’s last nine league games
Expert Verdict: This is a tricky match for Wolfsburg given Werder Bremen have accumulated 16 points from the last six Bundesliga matches, but even during their good run the hosts have kept one clean sheet in nine. That will be music to the ears of Wolfsburg’s Bas Dost, who has notched 12 goals in his last eight games.
Recommendation: B Dost first goalscorer
REFEREE: Marco Fritz STADIUM: Weserstadion
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Inter||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Inter have won four of their last five home fixtures
Expert Verdict: Inter eased to a 1-0 success over ten-man Celtic on Thursday and should have plenty left in the tank when they host Fiorentina at the San Siro. Fiorentina took advantage of Tottenham defensive errors to advance to the Europa League last 32 but worked hard for the win and may struggle to show the same intensity in Milan.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Seville||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Atletico have not drawn any of their last 20 La Liga matches
Expert Verdict: These Euro raiders return to domestic action with Sevilla looking to maintain a fine home record. Unai Emery’s men haven’t lost on home soil since March and are on a run of seven straight wins at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan, six of them to nil. Atletico take some opposing but after their reverse at Leverkusen might make them vulnerable.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Porto||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Sporting have scored in 21 of their 22 league matches this season
Expert Verdict: Both teams need to win this heavyweight clash if they are to stand any realistic chance of catching leaders Benfica and that should lead to a wide-open contest. Porto are the better side and will be the fresher too having had a clear week, but Sporting have failed to score in only one league match this season.
Recommendation: Both teams to score
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Torino||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Napoli have won seven of their last eight fixtures
Expert Verdict: Napoli breezed through their Europa League tie with Trabzonspor 5-0 on aggregate but want to be playing Champions League football next term and can enhance their top-three hopes with victory in Turin. Torino are through the Europa League last 16 but may be feeling the strain after the exertions of their 3-2 victory away to Athletic Bilbao.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Monaco||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Ten of Monaco’s 12 home league matches have featured under 2.5 goals
Expert Verdict: Monaco produced their best performance of the season to beat Arsenal 3-1 on Wednesday, but they may not be able to repeat the magic so soon after their brilliant result in north London. PSG have had a free week to prepare for the match and Laurent Blanc’s side are playing much better than recent results suggest.
