|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Anderlecht||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Arsenal have kept one clean sheet in their last nine matches
Expert Verdict: Arsenal’s weakened defence was once again exposed in the Premier League as the Gunners were held to a 2-2 draw by Hull on Saturday and Arsene Wenger’s side could be involved in another high-scoring shootout. The Gunners are great going forward but can’t be trusted to keep a clean sheet.
Recommendation: Both teams to score
REFEREE: Carlos Velasco Carballo STADIUM: Constant Vanden Stock Stadium
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Liverpool||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Real Madrid have scored 32 goals in their last seven matches
Expert Verdict: Free-scoring Real Madrid have been in sensational form in recent weeks and the champions can defeat Liverpool at Anfield. There is not as much to fear from the Reds these days with Luis Suarez at Barcelona and Daniel Sturridge injured and Madrid can warm up for El Clasico with a win on Merseyside.
Recommendation: Real Madrid
REFEREE: Nicola Rizzoli STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Young Boys||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Young Boys have lost one of their last 14 home games
Expert Verdict: Young Boys have won all of their three Europa League home games this term and can take a point from their tricky Group I clash at home to Napoli. A 5-0 win over Slovan Bratislava showed the threat Young Boys can pose on home astroturf although Napoli will be no pushovers after winning their opening two matches.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Lille||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Both teams have scored in eight of Everton's 11 games this season
Expert Verdict: Lille's excellent defensive standards have slipped recently with Ligue 1 defeats to Lyon (3-0) and Guingamp (2-1) so Everton should not fear their trip to northern France. The Toffees ended their recent slump with a fine home win over Aston Villa and Roberto Martinez's men are worth backing to earn a draw.
REFEREE: Manuel De Sousa STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at PAOK Salonika||Recent Form|
Key Stat: PAOK are unbeaten in their last 14 home fixtures
Expert Verdict: Fiorentina are the standout team in Group K but their matchday three clash with PAOK is the toughest of their schedule and they may settle for a point. The Italians have a big match away to Milan on Sunday and may rest key man for the clash with PAOK, who have won four and drawn one of their last five home games.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Celtic||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Both teams have scored in just one of Celtic's last five matches
Expert Verdict: Celtic found their form in front of goal with a 5-0 drubbing of Ross County and they should see off Romanian visitors Astra in the Europa League. Astra have lost six of their last nine games, including a 5-1 defeat at Dynamo Zagreb in this competition, and they may fold early at Celtic Park.
REFEREE: Kristinn Jakobsson STADIUM: Celtic Park
