|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Verona||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Both teams have scored in each of the last six meetings
Expert Verdict: If history is a reliable guide this will be spectacular with eight of the last ten meetings featuring over 3.5 goals and the last six have produced a truly whopping 37 with over 4.5 collecting five times. Verona’s 6-2 loss at Napoli on Sunday illustrated their strengths and weaknesses and both teams should notch.
Recommendation: Both teams to score
REFEREE: STADIUM: Nuovo Bentegodi
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Schalke||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Both teams have scored in five of the last six meetings
Expert Verdict: Augsburg have been awful on the road this season with five defeats in six but Schalke have been terrible for most of the campaign themselves. Augsburg have scored only two goals in those six road contests so expect a tight contest with the hosts extra quality maybe enough to get them maximum points.
Recommendation: Draw-Schalke double result
REFEREE: STADIUM: Parkstadion
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Monaco||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Reims have lost nine of their last 11 away matches
Expert Verdict: Monaco have tightened up defensively and their results have improved, with just one defeat and six clean sheets coming from their last nine matches. They should be too good for Reims, who have been convincingly beaten by St-Etienne, Lens and Metz on their travels this season.
Recommendation: Monaco 2-0
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Norwich||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Norwich have drawn four of seven home league games
Expert Verdict: Norwich have gone off the boil in the Championship, taking just three points from their last five games. And while third-bottom Bolton have a wretched away record of W1, D0, L6,they have shown dramatic improvement since Neil Lennon arrived, winning two of three games under the new manager.
REFEREE: Graham Scott STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Deportivo||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Getafe have scored just six goals in nine La Liga matches
Expert Verdict: Deportivo beat Valencia 3-0 in their last home game and followed up with another clean sheet so they look worthy of support against low-scoring Getafe. The visitors have already been beaten by Celta Vigo, Seville and Espanyol on their travels this term, while their road victory over struggling Sociedad was only secured in stoppage time.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Benfica||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Benfica have won ten of their last 11 league meetings against Rio Ave
Expert Verdict: Benfica had not been playing as well as results had suggested and the defeat to Braga last time out was coming, but this looks a great opportunity to get back to winning ways. Rio Ave are struggling to combine their domestic and Europa League commitments and this should be routine for the league leaders.
Recommendation: Benfica 2-0
