San Siro co-tenants may have to share spolis

Carlos Bacca and Davide Santon battle in a Milan derby last season
1 of 1

Alaves v Espanyol - Aaron Ashley

La Liga
Sky Sports 3, 11am
Espanyol are unbeaten in five La Liga matches and they look good value to continue that trend with a win against Alaves. The hosts have found only Real Madrid too strong at the Mendizorroza this term but Espanyol could be a different proposition now their well-regarded summer purchases are beginning to find the feet.

Recommendation
Espanyol
1pt 28-13 188Bet

Key stat
Espanyol are unbeaten in their last five meetings with Alaves


 

Sampdoria v Sassuolo - Aaron Ashley

Serie A
BT Sport 2, 11.30am
Sampdoria have picked up ten of their 15 points in Genoa this season but they could find free-scoring Sassuolo tougher. The visitors started the weekend as fourth-highest scorers on the road, while Samp have notched in all but one of their matches this season so backing both teams to score could well pay.

Recommendation
Both teams to score
2pts 4-5 188Bet 

Key stat
Both teams have scored in the last five meetings


Ajax v NEC Nijmegen - Joe Champion

Eredivisie
Sky Sports Mix, 1.30pm
Ajax are long odds-on to beat Nijmegen and the Amsterdam outfit should oblige. There’s not much juice in the price, however, and those wanting a bit more bang for their buck should chance the hosts to win 3-0. Ajax have found their shooting boots recently and could run out easy winners.

Recommendation
Ajax to win 3-0
1pt 13-2 Paddy Power

Key stat
Ajax have won six straight home matches


Guingamp v Bordeaux - Joe Champion

Ligue 1
BT Sport ESPN, 2pm
Guingamp’s home form has been phenomenal this season but they are not certain to make it five wins from six when they host Bordeaux. Girondins have scored just once in three away games but don’t lose many and could frustrate the hosts. Going under on goals looks smart.

Recommendation
Under 2.5 goals
3pts 4-6 BetBright

Key stat
Only one of Guingamp’s home games has featured more than two goals


Hoffenheim v Hamburg - Matthew Ireland

Bundesliga
BT Sport 2, 2.30pm
High-flying Hoffenheim are one of only five sides in Europe’s five major leagues who started the weekend unbeaten and they should make light work of ailing Hamburg. The visitors have claimed only two points and scored just four goals and the former European champions look severely up against it.

Recommendation
Hoffenheim -1
2pts 8-5 Paddy Power 

Key stat
Hoffenheim are unbeaten in 13 games this season


Atalanta v Roma - Joe Champion

Serie A
BT Sport 3, 2pm
Roma have been flying at home but their away form has paled in comparison and they might find Atalanta harder to crack than the odds suggest. The hosts have lost just twice on their own patch this season, and have picked up wins against both Napoli and Inter.

Recommendation
Draw
1pt 11-4 Ladbrokes

Key stat
Atalanta have lost just twice at home this season


Feyenoord  v PEC Zwolle - Matthew Ireland

Eredivisie
Sky Sports Mix, 3.45pm
Feyenoord’s blistering early-season form has slightly tailed off but they should get the job done at home to Zwolle. The visitors are unbeaten in five but they have been found wanting against the Eredivisie’s big boys and another chastening trip looks in store.

Recommendation
Feyenoord to win 3-0
1pt 17-2 Paddy Power

Key stat
Feyenoord have netted 17 times in six home games


Marseille v Caen - James Milton

Ligue 1
BT Sport 3, 4pm
Marseille coach Rudi Garcia is steadying the ship but the former Roma boss is short of attacking firepower. OM have taken five points from four Ligue 1 games under Garcia, despite scoring only two goals, and they could nick a narrow win against a Caen side who have lost five of their six away fixtures.

Recommendation
Marseille to win 1-0
1pt 13-2 188Bet, Hills

Key stat
Three of Marseille’s six home league games have finished 0-0


Werder Bremen v Eintracht Frankfurt - James Milton

Bundesliga
BT Sport 2, 4.30pm
Eintracht Frankfurt have made a fine start to the campaign, with five wins and creditable draws with Bayern Munich, Monchengladbach and Hertha Berlin among their first ten results. Hosts Werder Bremen have been stumbling out of the blocks – they’ve trailed at half-time in four of their last five outings – and the visitors could take charge early on.

Recommendation
Frankfurt-Frankfurt double result
1pt 16-5 Betfair, Coral

Key stat
Werder Bremen have scored only four first-half goals in ten Bundesliga matches


 

Sporting Gijon  v Real Sociedad - Aaron Ashley

La Liga
Sky Sports 5, 5.30pm
Sociedad are on a good run of late, winning their last three La Liga matches to nil, and they should prove too clinical for struggling Gijon. The hosts have failed to win in the league since mid September while Sociedad, who outshone Atletico a fortnight ago, have won five of their last seven and will have their eyes on qualifying for Europe this term.

Recommendation
Real Sociedad
1pt 13-10 Hills

Key stat
Gjion have won just one of their last ten matches


Athletic Bilbao  v Villarreal - Aaron Ashley

La Liga
Sky Sports 5, 7.45pm
Only Barcelona have upset Athletic Bilbao on their own turf this term and it’s unlikely Villarreal, who have won just once on their travels in 13 matches, will do so. The visitors sit five points ahead of Athletic but that’s solely down to their home form and only Deportivo and Gijon have registered fewer goals than Villarreal on the road.

Recommendation
Athletic Bilbao
1pt 6-5 Betfred, Hills

Key stat
Athletic are unbeaten in their last five home meetings with Villarreal


St-Etienne  v Nice - Aaron Ashley

Ligue 1
BT Sport 3, 7.45pm
Nice are showing signs of cracking having suffered back-to-back defeats and with leading scorer Mario Balotelli suspended it could pay to support St-Etienne to triumph. St-Etienne’s problem is they draw too many games – they have shared the spoils in half of their Ligue 1 matches this term – but they have lost just once in the league at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard since March.

Recommendation
St-Etienne
1pt 6-5 Betfred, Hills

Key stat
St-Etienne have lost just one of their last 11 Ligue 1 matches


Milan v Inter - James Milton

Serie A
BT Sport 2, 7.45pm
The San Siro co-tenants have had contrasting starts to the season with Milan winning seven of their last nine league games and Inter sacking coach Frank de Boer. However, Inter scored three times in the last six minutes to earn a morale-boosting win over Crotone last time and they have the attacking quality to earn a point.

Recommendation
1-1 correct score
1pt 6-1 Hills

Key stat
Milan have won five of their six Serie A games at the San Siro
