Key Stat: Malaga have not kept a clean sheet in 12 matches this season

Expert Verdict: Only twice this season have Malaga avoided defeat, although both of those were at home as they wait for their first shutout of a miserable campaign. Deportivo were left heartbroken to lose so late against Atletico Madrid last time out but they have scored in four of their five away matches.

Recommendation: Both teams to score

Key Stat: Genoa are winless in four league games

Expert Verdict: Crotone are a dogged outfit on home soil and could pile the misery on a goal-shy Genoa, who have notched in only one of their last four league games. Only Inter and Milan have been victorious in Crotone this term and the visitors, who have won just one of their last 11 away league games, look up against it.

Recommendation: Crotone

Key Stat: PSV have won seven in a row in the Eredivisie

Expert Verdict: Zwolle top scorer Younes Mokhtar has recovered from a hamstring strain and adds to the firepower on display. Zwolle have won six in a row at home – but were battered 3-0 at Ajax in their only loss – while PSV are free-scoring and flying. The two games between these two last term produced nine goals – PSV won both – and this could be entertaining once again.

Recommendation: PSV to win 4-1

Key Stat: Juventus have conceded in four of their five away league games

Expert Verdict: Sampdoria boast a 100 per cent league record on their own patch this term and could make champions Juventus work for their rewards. The hosts have notched 16 goals from their five home league games, which includes victories over Milan and Atalanta, and have enough star quality in their ranks to at least breach Juve's defence.

Recommendation: Draw

Key Stat: Eight of Caen’s 13 matches this season have produced 1-0 scorelines

Expert Verdict: Nice have only scored one goal in five away games so can ill-afford to be without suspended top scorer Mario Balotelli. That said, goals at the Stade Michel d’Ornano are scarce this season – just nine in six matches – and Caen can hardly be buzzing after their 5-0 dismantling by Marseille.

Recommendation: Draw

Key Stat: Hamburg have not won any of their last six away matches at Schalke

Expert Verdict: Hamburg had taken one point from eight Bundesliga games before beating Stuttgart last time out, although the early red card to Dzenis Burnic made that clash much easier and normal service should resume at Schalke. The rejuvenated Royal Blues are on the match and should safely justify their odds-on status

Recommendation: Schalke
