|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Everton||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Everton kept four clean sheets in their six home games against the top seven last season
Expert Verdict: Bookmakers may have been caught up in the Emirates feel-good factor after the arrival of Alexis Sanchez, as Arsenal look too big to win at Goodison Park. That makes backing an Everton victory attractive despite the long-term injury to Ross Barkley. Last season the Toffees only lost two games against the top seven on their own turf.
REFEREE: Kevin Friend STADIUM: Goodison Park
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at B Dortmund||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Leverkusen have won one of their last seven matches against Dortmund
Expert Verdict: Bayern Munich will almost certainly win the Bundesliga but Borussia Dortmund can put up a better fight this season and Jurgen Klopp’s side should start with a win over Bayer Leverkusen. Dortmund have plenty of attacking options despite the loss of leading hitman Robert Lewandowski and can win a high-scoring showdown.
Recommendation: Borussia Dortmund to win 3-1
REFEREE: STADIUM: Westfalenstadion
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Malaga||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Bilbao have drawn five of their last eight away fixtures
Expert Verdict: Malaga have become a selling club in recent years but finished six points clear of the drop last season and can begin the new campaign with a creditable draw at home to Athletic Bilbao. Qualification for the Champions League has raised Athletic’s profile but the sale of Ander Herrera to Manchester United has weakened their team.
REFEREE: STADIUM: La Rosaleda
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Pacos Ferreira||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Pacos Ferreira have lost five of their last seven home fixtures
Expert Verdict: Paulo Fonseca endured an unsuccessful season in the Porto hotseat and will be desperate to guide his new charges, Pacos Ferreira, to victory. In his first spell at Pacos, Fonseca steered them to third in place 2012-13 but that team has been largely dismantled, leaving them unable to match a side of Porto's quality and the favourites should win comfortably.
Recommendation: Porto to win 2-0
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Nice||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Nice finished only two points clear of relegation last season
Expert Verdict: Bordeaux have won both of their opening fixtures and Willy Sagnol’s men will be high on confidence after an emphatic 4-1 win over Monaco. Bordeaux came away with a 2-1 victory the last time they travelled to Nice and look value to repeat the trick against a side who finished 17th last season.
REFEREE: STADIUM: Allianz Riviera
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Seville||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Valencia won only three away matches last season
Expert Verdict: Both clubs face a period of adaptation after the sale of key players but Seville look better placed to cope in the early stages of the season. They must handle change but do so from a stronger position than Los Che, having finished 14 points ahead of them last season and Valencia need a bigger overhaul.
REFEREE: STADIUM: Sanchez Pizjuan, Seville
