|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Real Madrid||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Real Madrid have scored five goals in each of their last three home matches
Expert Verdict: Barcelona are yet to concede in La Liga although their run of eight clean sheets comes under huge threat at the Bernabeu. Real Madrid have won eight in a row, scoring 35 goals, but they should be wary of Barca forward Neymar, who has struck 11 times in his last seven games for club and country.
Recommendation: Neymar first goalscorer
REFEREE: Jesus Gil Manzano STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Swansea||Recent Form|
Key Stat: The last six meetings have all been home wins
Expert Verdict: Leicester have done well since winning promotion but they’ve lost three of their four away games and the Liberty Stadium is a tough venue to visit. Swansea have been solid on their own turf in their three seasons in the top flight, losing just four of 31 games at home to bottom-half teams since promotion.
REFEREE: Mike Jones STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at B Leverkusen||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Leverkusen’s eight league matches have produced 30 goals this season
Expert Verdict: Both teams won in the Champions League this week but there can be no doubt who was more impressive with Schalke struggling to beat ten-men Sporting as Bayer Leverkusen cruised past Zenit 2-0. They can’t always be relied upon defensively but Leverkusen’s attacking play should seal the points.
Recommendation: Bayer Leverkusen
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Valencia||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Elche have conceded 18 goals in their eight games this season
Expert Verdict: Valencia stunk the place out at Deportivo last week but their 3-0 loss has not been in keeping with their excellent season and it’s worth sticking with Los Che to bounce back immediately. Valencia have scored exactly three goals in five of their eight La Liga games and this should be a cosy home triumph.
Recommendation: Valencia 3-0
REFEREE: STADIUM: Mestalla, Valencia
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Sampdoria||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Sampdoria are unbeaten in their last nine matches
Expert Verdict: Roma will hope to draw a line under their 7-1 loss to Bayern Munich as quickly as possible but may suffer from a loss of confidence and unbeaten Sampdoria can take advantage. Samp have not challenged at the top end of Serie A for several years but are in third place and their impressive start looks set to continue.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Ajax||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Ricardo van Rhijn has scored first in two of Ajax’s last four league matches
Expert Verdict: After back-to-back Eredivisie draws Ajax can get a much-needed win over Go Ahead Eagles. Striker Kolbeinn Sigthorsson has scored four goals in Ajax’s last three league games, but at much bigger odds consider backing right-back free-kick specialist Ricardo van Rhijn.
Recommendation: R van Rhijn first goalscorer
