|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Mainz||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Mainz have not won any of their last eight matches
Expert Verdict: Mainz were unbeaten in the first two months of the Bundesliga but have been on the slide in recent weeks and are unlikely to turn the corner against Bayern Munich. All of Bayern's three draws have been on the road but they have won their last eight domestic games and should continue their relentless progress.
Recommendation: Bayern-Bayern double result
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Lens||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Lens have won just one of their last seven home fixtures
Expert Verdict: Nice have eased their relegation worries by taking four points from their last two games and can cement their mid-table position with a victory at second-bottom Lens. Life in the top flight is proving difficult for promoted Lens, who have won just one of their last seven league games.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Bristol R||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Rovers have failed to find the net in their last three games
Expert Verdict: Third-placed Rovers are the lowest scorers in the top half of the Conference by a distance which has to be a concern. Defensively they are strong and that makes them difficult to oppose but since Gateshead have earned draws at fortresses such as Macclesfield and Eastleigh, they can do likewise at the Memorial Stadium.
REFEREE: Brett Huxtable STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Derby||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Derby have drawn two of three home games against top-half sides
Expert Verdict: Just three league wins for Norwich since September 16 does not bode well for a trip to Pride Park. However, Derby have thrown in home draws with Ipswich, Cardiff and Millwall, and come into this having played a punishing League Cup tie with Chelsea on Tuesday.
REFEREE: Paul Tierney STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Man City||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Man City have scored 13 of their 21 league away goals in the second half of their games
Expert Verdict: City stretched their winning league run to five matches with victory at Leicester but it came at a cost with Vincent Kompany and Edin Dzeko picking up injuries. Dzeko’s fellow strikers Sergio Aguero and Stevan Jovetic are also sidelined, so Palace could hold firm until half-time.
Recommendation: Draw-Man City double result
REFEREE: Phil Dowd STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at QPR||Recent Form|
Key Stat: QPR are unbeaten in their last four home games
Expert Verdict: West Brom dragged themselves out of the mire with a much-needed victory on Saturday but have scored only two goals in six matches and may struggle to follow up at QPR, who are solid at home. This could be a low-quality affair and the draw looks the bet.
