Key Stat: Atalanta have scored in each of their last 11 matches

Expert Verdict: Serie A leaders Napoli lost 2-1 at home to Atalanta in the Coppa Italia earlier this month and may drop points against the Nerazzurri in Bergamo. Four league wins have taken Napoli to the top of the table but they may have to settle for a point against Atalanta, who have lost one of their last 11.

Recommendation: Draw

Key Stat: Chievo have failed to score in their last three away games

Expert Verdict: Struggling Chievo have not taken maximum points since November and their winless run is likely to extend to eight with a defeat to Lazio in Rome. Fourth-placed Lazio are firmly in the hunt for Champions League qualification and are averaging 2.53 goals per league game – the most in the division.

Recommendation: Lazio to win 2-0

Key Stat: St-Etienne have scored a league-low five away goals in ten matches

Expert Verdict: Unbeaten in seven in Ligue 1, Nice will still be gutted to have thrown away maximum points at Monaco on Tuesday, though they can take their frustration out against St-Etienne. Les Verts haven't scored more than one goal in an away game since April and have only notched in two of their last six road trips.

Recommendation: Nice

Key Stat: Bayern have conceded just three goals in their last seven home league fixtures

Expert Verdict: Bayern Munich are in complete control of the Bundesliga title race and they can put more pressure on the chasing pack by easing to a comfortable home victory over Werder Bremen. Only five of Bremen's 14 league goals have been scored on the road and they may struggle to breach the meanest defence in the division.

Recommendation: Bayern Munich to win 3-0

Key Stat: Real Madrid have kept one clean sheet in their last seven home games

Expert Verdict: Marco Asensio's late goal handed Real Madrid a welcome 1-0 win at Leganes in the first leg of the Copa del Rey quarter-finals but the Spanish and European are not playing anywhere near their peak and could make hard work of beating Deportivo at the Bernabeu. Depor dug out a 1-1 draw at Villarreal on their last road trip and can keep the score respectable this weekend.

Recommendation: Real Madrid to win 2-1

Key Stat: Spurs have won three of their last five meetings with the Saints by two or more goals

Expert Verdict: Tottenham have started to cut loose and should ease to victory at Southampton. Last Saturday’s 4-0 dismantling of Everton highlighted Spurs’ ruthless streak and it's been a common theme in recent weeks, with Mauricio Pochettino’s men showing no mercy in meetings with opponents low on confidence or class.

Recommendation: Tottenham to win 3-0
