|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
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at St Johnstone||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Three of St Johnstone's four wins this season have come on the road
Expert Verdict: St Johnstone have done their best work away from home so it requires something of a leap of faith to back them at McDiarmid Park. However, Motherwell arrive in even worse form having won one of their last 11 games. The hosts aren't exactly free-scoring and a narrow win looks likely.
Recommendation: St Johnstone 1-0
REFEREE: Kevin Clancy STADIUM: McDiarmid Park
