|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Getafe||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Villarreal are unbeaten in 17 matches
Expert Verdict: Villarreal were unable to put Getafe to the sword in the first leg at El Madrigal but have the tools to defend their 1-0 advantage. La Liga strugglers Getafe have mainly been powder-puff this season and probably lack the firepower required to turn the tie around.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Bristol C||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Gills have conceded nine goals in three games against City this season
Expert Verdict: New Gillingham boss Andy Hessenthaler has failed to spark a revival and he faces another defeat – this time in the second leg of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy southern area final. The Gills have lost three of their five games under him, including a 4-2 defeat to Bristol City in the first leg.
Recommendation: Bristol City-Bristol City double result
REFEREE: Graham Scott STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Seville||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Seville have won six of their last seven home fixtures
Expert Verdict: Seville have a tough task after losing 3-1 to Espanyol in the opening leg but still have a decent chance of reaching the semi-finals. The Andalucians have won each of their two Copa del Rey home games by four-goal margins and face an Espanyol side who have suffered defeats in three of their last four away games.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Ath Bilbao||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Malaga have not won any of their last five matches
Expert Verdict: Malaga have been going through a sticky spell since the turn of the year following the sale of Roque Santa Cruz and may exit the Copa del Rey with a defeat at San Mames. A goalless first leg has shifted the advantage to Athletic Bilbao, who can improve on the 1-1 draw they recorded in Sunday’s league match at home to Malaga.
Recommendation: Athletic Bilbao
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Paris St-G.||Recent Form|
Key Stat: PSG have been leading at half-time in only one of their last seven league games
Expert Verdict: Paris St-Germain dug out a hard-fought 1-0 win at St-Etienne last weekend but their home clash with Rennes should be more open. The visitors, who held PSG to a 1-1 draw in September, have lost four of their last six league games although both teams have scored in six of their last seven in all competitions.
Recommendation: Both teams to score
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Wolfsburg||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Bayern Munich are unbeaten domestically this season
Expert Verdict: Wolfsburg have lost only one home Bundesliga match in the last year but that sole defeat came against Bayern Munich and it is difficult to envisage an upset as the Germans return from a winter break. This is second against first but Bayern and in a class of their own and can go 14 points clear.
Recommendation: Bayern Munich to win 2-0
