Hard to see Dons shutting out Vale

Wimbledon v Port Vale

There's the length of the division between these two sides so Vale look a decent bet at a shade of odds-on.

The one thing we know about Vale is that they score loads of goals, especially on the road. The one thing we know about the Dons is that they ship goals at an alarming rate.

They've not kept a clean sheet at home since August, a record that is behind their drop into the relegation zone.

Vale won 2-1 at Gillingham last time out and if they can win at Priestfield they can certainly triumph at Kingsmeadow.

FK Qarabag v Celtic

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Qarabag have lost only one of their last 18 home matches
Expert verdict
Celtic are getting hot under the collar over a heat-baked pitch in Baku, which may not be up to scratch. It’s been blistering in the Azerbaijan capital – temperatures at kick-off are forecast to be in the mid-30s – so it’s an evening for staying cool, especially with only a 1-0 lead to defend.
