|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Mgladbach||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Gladbach are unbeaten in their last 11 domestic fixtures
Expert Verdict: Wolfsburg are out of the Europa League but restored some pride with their 2-2 draw away to Napoli on Thursday and can follow up with a draw in Gladbach. The Wolves have lost just one league game in the last five months but they face a tough test against fourth-placed Gladbach, who are unbeaten in nine matches.
REFEREE: Bastian Dankert STADIUM: Westfalenstadion
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Fiorentina||Recent Form|
Expert Verdict: Fiorentina’s return from Europa League action in Kiev was a disappointing one as they lost at home to Verona. This time, having seen off Dinamo Kiev in the second leg of their quarter-final, the viola should be trusted to get it right against a Cagliari side who haven’t won in the league in 11.
Recommendation: Fiorentina to win 2-0
REFEREE: Marco Guida STADIUM: Artemio Franchi
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Benfica||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Benfica have won nine of their last ten fixtures
Expert Verdict: Porto will be bitterly disappointed with their 6-1 capitulation in Bavaria on Tuesday and their suffering could continue with a damaging defeat to title rivals Benfica at the Stadium of Light. Benfica, who lead the standings by three points, know that victory would almost guarantee top spot and they are unlikely to pass up their opportunity.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Seville||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Rayo have lost all eight away matches against top-ten teams this season
Expert Verdict: Rayo always play to attack, but it usually has dire consequences in away matches against the better teams in Spain. There are usually early goals in Rayo matches too - the deadlock has been broken before the 24th minute in 12 of their 17 road trips - and Seville should make their mark early on.
Recommendation: Seville-Seville double result
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Napoli||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Sampdoria have scored three first-half goals in 16 away games
Expert Verdict: Sampdoria boast enough decent road performances to have a chance in Naples. They’ve managed five away wins – including at Roma last month – and six draws and will test a Napoli team whose form has definitely been mixed. They drew in Genoa earlier in the season and another tight encounter is on the cards.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Celta Vigo||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Celta Vigo’s games average only 2.22 goals per game this season
Expert Verdict: This is traditionally seen as a tricky test for Real Madrid and even more so after Carlo Ancelotti’s injury-hit side had to dig deep to see off Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday. However, that looks to be overly factored into the prices and Madrid can maintain their title challenge in Vigo.
Recommendation: Real Madrid
