Key Stat: Sporting have scored in their last 21 away league games

Expert Verdict: Bas Dost goes in pursuit of a third hat-trick in as many league games and he’ll fancy his chances at Setubal, who boast the second leakiest defence in Portugal. Three draws have at least stopped the bleeding at the Estadio do Bonfim, though Sporting have won on their last three league visits to Setubal with an aggregate scoreline of 11-1

Recommendation: Sporting to win 3-1

Key Stat: Dortmund have lost four of their last six away matches

Expert Verdict: Hertha Berlin were surprise 3-2 winners at highflying Leipzig in their last match of 2017 and can claim another major scalp by beating Borussia Dortmund at the Olympiastadion. Mid-table Hertha are only six points adrift of the top three and can cause problems for Dortmund, who have posted just two wins since the start of November.

Recommendation: Hertha Berlin

Key Stat: Marseille have lost one of their last 14 matches

Expert Verdict: Tenth-placed Caen are the lowest scorers in the French top flight and are likely to be outgunned by third-placed Marseille, who are in with a great chance of Champions League qualification. A 17-point gap separates the sides and Marseille look reasonable value to confirm that superiority.

Recommendation: Marseille

Key Stat: The five top-flight meetings between these sides have produced just seven goals

Expert Verdict: Porto are on a nine-match winning run, nine matches which have produced 40 goals. Their games against Tondela, however, tend to be low-scoring and the Auriverdes’ eight away games this season have yielded just 15 goals. Tondela’s three clashes with the big three this season have all ended in defeat and this one should too.

Recommendation: Porto to win 2-0

Key Stat: Sevilla have lost their last three La Liga away fixtures

Expert Verdict: Espanyol will be feeling good about themselves after winning 1-0 at home to rivals Barcelona in the first leg of the Copa del Rey quarter-finals and they can follow up with a home win over Sevilla, who are not to be trusted on the road. Sevilla are sixth but they have lost seven of their ten La Liga away games this season.

Recommendation: Espanyol

Key Stat: Brighton have drawn six home games this term

Expert Verdict: Brighton might be near the foot of the table but the Seagulls have lost just two of their 11 Premier League games at the Amex Stadium. Chelsea aren’t firing on all cylinders – they have drawn five matches in a row in all competitions – and it may take time for the champions to stamp their class.

Recommendation: Draw
