|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Man City||Recent Form|
Key Stat: There have been 32 goals in the last nine meetings
Expert Verdict: Man City rate a confident selection when they take on Aston Villa. The Citizens need points to guarantee Champions League football next season and they looked motivated enough against West Ham last week. Villa, however, could be feeling the effects of last week’s FA Cup semi-final success.
Recommendation: Man City-Man City double result
REFEREE: Mike Dean STADIUM: Etihad Stadium
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Atl Madrid||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Elche have lost all nine matches against La Liga’s top five this season
Expert Verdict: Atletico Madrid will be feeling low after the late heartbreak of crashing out of the Champions League at Real Madrid on Wednesday, but Diego Simeone’s side are made of stern stuff and should bounce back easily enough. Atletico have led at the break in all eight of their La Liga home games in 2015 and can make another quick start.
Recommendation: Atletic-Atletico double result
REFEREE: Carlos Clos Gomez STADIUM: Vicente Calderon
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Barnet||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Barnet have won six of their last eight home matches
Expert Verdict: John Akinde has spearheaded Barnet’s Conference Premier title charge – notching 31 goals in 44 league games – and looks the man most likely to put injury-ravaged Gateshead to the sword at the Hive. Victory will assure the Bees of automatic promotion, although they will be taking nothing for granted after being held to a surprise 1-1 draw at Kidderminster last weekend.
Recommendation: J Akinde first goalscorer
REFEREE: Darren England STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at B Munich||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Hertha have kept five clean sheets in their last seven matches
Expert Verdict: Bayern Munich led 5-0 at half-time in Tuesday's 6-1 success over Porto but are likely to meet stiffer resistance from Hertha Berlin, who are bidding to extend a seven-game unbeaten run. Tuesday's German Cup semi-final at home to Borussia Dortmund is a distraction for Bayern, who may have to wait until the second period to effectively seal the Bundesliga title.
Recommendation: Draw-Bayern Munich double result
REFEREE: Guido Winkmann STADIUM: Allianz Arena
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Stranraer||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Morton have found the net in 15 of their last 16 League One away matches
Expert Verdict: This is an intriguing tussle at the top of Scottish League One between two evenly-matched teams. Morton have been excellent on the road while Stranraer have won 12 of their last 14 matches on their own patch. Stranraer should still come under great pressure from the Greenock outfit and both teams are capable of making their mark.
Recommendation: Both teams to score
REFEREE: Greg Aitken STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Bordeaux||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Metz have not won any of their last 12 away fixtures
Expert Verdict: Bordeaux have a slim chance of a top three finish and can keep Champions League qualification hopes alive with a comfortable home win over second-bottom Metz. Ten of Bordeaux’s 15 league wins have been at home and they should soon be in control against a Metz sider sat eight points adrift of safety.
Recommendation: Bordeaux-Bordeaux double result
|Sunderland position is no laughing matter|
