|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at B Munich||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Schalke have lost their last five league matches at Bayern by at least two goals
Expert Verdict: The runaway leaders were thrashed 4-1 at Wolfsburg on Friday but Schalke have every reason to expect a Bayern Munich backlash at the Allianz Arena. Bayern’s 100 per cent home record is set to remain intact and ten-goal top scorer Arjen Robben looks as likely as anyone to open the floodgates.
Recommendation: A Robben first goalscorer
REFEREE: STADIUM: Allianz Arena

Key Stat: Roma have drawn their last five matches in normal time
Expert Verdict: Roma have lost their way in recent weeks and are not playing with the same sparkle which made them such a success story last season. A tight quarter-final is anticipated with eight of Roma’s last nine matches featuring no more than two goals and extra-time looks a real possibility.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at NAC Breda||Recent Form|
Key Stat: PSV have won 12 of their last 13 league matches
Expert Verdict: Lowly NAC Breda have not won any of their last six games and their poor run is set to continue with a heavy defeat at home to league leaders PSV Eindhoven. PSV have not dropped any points against teams in the current bottom half and have very little to fear from NAC, whose only home win came in late August.
Recommendation: PSV to win 3-0
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Man Utd||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Man Utd have scored two goals or more in eight of their last 11 home games
Expert Verdict: Earning a replay at Old Trafford is already beyond Cambridge’s wildest dreams but the adventure looks set to end with a heavy defeat. Manchester United have been reluctant to go for the throat but that changed in the first half against Leicester and Louis Van Gaal will demand a repeat performance.
Recommendation: Man Utd to win 4-0
REFEREE: Jonathan Moss STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Lille||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Lille have scored no more than once in eight of their last nine fixtures
Expert Verdict: Paris St-Germain have made a strong start to the year – winning five of their six games – and can sneak an away victory over Lille in the League Cup semi-final. The weekend league match away to Lyon is a massive test and PSG can warm up by seeing off out-of-form Lille, who have gone three games without a win.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Heerenveen||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Heerenveen have lost just one of their last eight home games
Expert Verdict: Heerenveen have improved since the start of December – winning three and drawing three of their six games – and can hold Feyenoord to a draw at the Abe Lenstra stadium. Third-placed Feyenoord have recovered well after a slow start to the season but only two visiting sides have won at Heerenveen this season.
