|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Aston Villa||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Aston Villa have won only three of their last 11 matches against Liverpool
Expert Verdict: Aston Villa's much-needed Premier League win over Tottenham came at a cost with Tim Sherwood's side picking up injuries and a suspension to Carlos Sanchez. That should make Liverpool's task easier and, with Martin Skrtel and Steven Gerrard returning from bans, it is the Reds who can claim a spot in the FA Cup final.
Recommendation: Liverpool to win 2-0
REFEREE: Michael Oliver STADIUM: Wembley
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Newcastle||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Tottenham have a negative away goal difference of minus two
Expert Verdict: Newcastle are in dreadful form and their run of five consecutive defeats has ramped up the pressure on manager John Carver. However, Tottenham were beaten by Aston Villa last time out and their away form is unreliable, as evidenced by their recent 0-0 bore draw at Burnley.
REFEREE: Kevin Friend STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Montpellier||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Both teams have scored in seven of Montpellier's last eight home games
Expert Verdict: Montpellier fans have had plenty of entertainment recently as the last eight league matches at Stade de la Mosson produced a total of 33 goals. There should be more excitement when Caen come to town as the visitors have scored 12 goals in their last five away games, including a 2-2 draw at PSG and a 3-2 win at Marseille.
Recommendation: Both teams to score
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Granada||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Granada have lost one of their last seven home matches
Expert Verdict: Seville dug to triumph 2-1 at home to Zenit St Petersburg on Thursday and may not be at their best when taking on relegation-threatened Granada. A string of wins may be need for Seville to climb into the top four but it won’t be easy for them to defeat the lowly hosts, who have lost just four home league games.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Wolfsburg||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Wolfsburg have won 12 of their last 13 Bundesliga home games
Expert Verdict: Wolfsburg’s Europa League dream looks dead after their shock 4-1 loss at home to Napoli but they can dust themselves and defeat Schalke. The Wolves have lost just one of their last 16 league fixtures and are in much better domestic form than Schalke, who have no win in four.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Cagliari||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Cagliari have been behind at half time in a Serie A-high 15 matches
Expert Verdict: Napoli bounced back from capital calamities against Roma and Lazio by thumping Fiorentina in the league and Wolfsburg in Europe. That 4-1 triumph in Germany was the ultimate confidence boost and while another plane trip – this time to Sardinia – is hardly ideal, they are in the form to deliver a crushing win.
