Road woes may cost Schalke dear again

Monchengladbach can get the better of Hertha
1 of 1

Besiktas v Olympiakos BT Sport 3, 6pm Thursday
Besiktas had the better of their 1-1 draw with Olympiakos in Athens and look solid favourites to see off the Greeks in Istanbul.

Olympiakos triumphed over Turkish side Osmanlispor 3-0 on aggregate in the round of 32, but Besiktas are a much stronger side and, given a favourable draw, could go all the way to the final.

Recommendation
Besiktas
1pt 4-6 bet365, Betfred, Hills

Bet on this game at Soccerbase.com

Key stat
Besiktas have won nine of their last 11 home games.


B M'gladbach v Schalke BT ESPN & Showcase, 8.05pm Thursday
Schalke were unlucky to draw 1-1 in the home leg against Borussia Monchengladbach and could pay the price for missed chances with a defeat in the Rhineland.

Poor away results have held Schalke back all season. They lost 4-2 away to Gladbach in a league match earlier this month and may not improve on that effort.

Recommendation
Borussia Monchengladbach
1pt 6-5 Betfred

Bet on this game at Soccerbase.com

Key stat
Gladbach have won eight of their last 12 fixtures.


Roma v Lyon BT Sport 3, 8.05pm Thursday
Lyon are in a strong position after dominating the second half of their first leg against Roma - turning a 2-1 deficit into a 4-2 victory - but they could be set for a nervy night in the Italian capital.

Attack-minded Roma are averaging 2.85 goals per home game in Serie A and will do everything in their power to turn the tie around.

The Italians should win on the night but qualification will be a close-run thing.

Recommendation
Roma
1pt 3-4 general

Bet on this game at Soccerbase.com

Key stat
Lyon have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last seven away matches.

Besiktas are a much stronger side and, given a favourable draw, could go all the way to the final
