|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Freiburg||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Three of Freiburg's seven home league games have ended 0-0
Expert Verdict: Freiburg have drawn eight of their 16 Bundesliga games and they may have to settle for another stalemate when they host Hannover this weekend. A 2-0 defeat at Bayern Munich was no disgrace for Freiburg but their lack of cutting edge is a concern against a Hannover side who are inconsistent but dangerous going forward.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Elche||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Seven of Malaga's eight league victories this season have been by a single goal
Expert Verdict: Three defeats in four have left Elche rooted to the foot of the La Liga table and they may find little respite when Europe-chasing Malaga visit the Estadio Martinez Valero. After a tough run of fixtures, Malaga have steadily got their act together and with a decent set of attacking players at their disposal can just edge through.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Inter||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Lazio have lost just one of their last six away games
Expert Verdict: Inter made some bold moves in the summer transfer market but they have been way too inconsistent and could be held to a draw by Lazio at the San Siro. Roberto Mancini’s side have won just one of their last five Serie A home games and face a Lazio side buoyed by three successive wins.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Ath Bilbao||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Both teams have scored in only two of Athletic Bilbao's seven home matches
Expert Verdict: Atletico Madrid suffered a rare home defeat to Villarreal last weekend but they should bounce back at Athletic Bilbao. Atleti don't score many goals on the road – eight in seven games, including two in the win at Real Madrid – but their defence is generally solid and it may be worth backing a narrow away win.
Recommendation: Atletico Madrid to win 1-0
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Bordeaux||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Lyon have lost just one of their last 14 matches
Expert Verdict: After a couple of lean years Lyon are back in the hunt for the French title but they may have to settle for a point at fifth-placed Bordeaux. Bordeaux are one of only two teams with an unbeaten home record (big-spending PSG are the other) but face a tough match against a Lyon side targeting a fourth successive victory.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at all venues||Recent Form|
Key Stat: The Italian Super Cup has averaged four goals per game since 2006
Expert Verdict: Juventus and Napoli fly to Doha to contest the Italian Super Cup and it could pay to anticipate an open encounter at the end of a tough run of winter fixtures. Juve won 4-2 after extra-time when the teams collided in this fixture two years ago and the attacking firepower both possess could see goals rain down again.
Recommendation: Both teams to score
