20:00 West Brom vs Huddersfield: Huddersfield or Draw

TV: Sky Sports Football

West Brom finally put a halt on their disastrous recent form with a 0-2 away win over Hull City last weekend. Prior to that game, the Baggies had lost six and drawn one of their last seven while of their last five at home, they’ve won one, drawn two and lost two.

Huddersfield can overtake Bournemouth in second place should they take the three points on offer here. The Terriers have won four of their last five in all competitions and they are undefeated over their last eight away Championship matches. Of their last five on their travels, they’ve won three and drawn two.

While the hosts finally got a win last weekend, the fact remains that they’ve only scored three goals over their last five league games and failed to score in three of their last five on home soil. The home side are the favourites but their form is terrible compared to the visitors, we’re opposing the Baggies here.

20:00 Lille vs St Etienne: Under 2.5 Goals

TV: BT Sport 3

Lille are odds-on to take the three points here with the hosts having won three of their last five fixtures, drawing one and losing one. Their Ligue 1 stats read as three wins, one draw and one loss while their home form in the league has seen them winning two, drawing two and losing one. They’ll be up for this one, their title defence hasn’t gone well this season but they could finally break back into the European places should they take the three points.

St Etienne are just a point above the relegation playoff place but their recent form is quite good with three wins, one draw and one loss. Their away form isn’t great, though, with two wins and three losses. The away side have struggled on this ground, winning none of their last 10 visits to the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.

Lille have kept four clean sheets over their last five fixtures while Over 2.5 goals has only occurred in one. With the visitors scoring in just three of their last six on the road, we’re opposing goals here and going with the value in Under 2.5 Goals.

20:00 Atletico Madrid vs Cadiz: Atletico to Win to Nil

TV: Free Sports & La Liga TV

Atletico are starting to put a bit of form together after what has been an underwhelming season. The hosts have won three, drawn one and lost one of their last five in all competitions. At home they’ve won three, drawn one and lost one while their home La Liga form reads as four wins and one loss, scoring 11 goals in total.

Cadiz are third from bottom in the league on 24 points after 27 games and have won just one of their last five fixtures, drawing three and losing one. Their away La Liga form isn’t great either with one win, two draws and two losses, scoring just three goals. This one has Atletico to Win to Nil written all over it.

20:00 Shamrock Rovers vs Bohemians: Both Teams to Score

TV: LOI TV

There’s always a bit of needle in this Dublin derby and the home side are odds-on favourites to take the three points. Rovers have won two and lost two of their league games since the season began while Bohs have won one and drawn two of their three matches.

Over the last five meetings between the two sides at the Tallaght Stadium the hosts have won three, drawn one and the visitors have won one. The home side have only kept one clean sheet over their four league games, scoring seven goals, while Bohs have netted four over their three matches. With the home side conceding and the visitors in good goal-scoring form we’re looking at a very decently-priced Both Teams to Score here.

20:15 Benfica vs Vizela: Benfica to Win & BTTS

Benfica can close the gap on Sporting above them in second to just a point should they take the spoils here. They’re in pretty good form of late, going unbeaten over their last six games, winning four and drawing two. Their home league form has seen them winning three of their last five, drawing one and losing one, scoring nine and conceding four.

Vizela are hovering just three points above the relegation playoff place and are in pretty bad shape having failed to win any of their last five league encounters, drawing two and losing three. Away from home they’ve won one of their last five, drawing one and losing three. The silver lining is that they’ve scored in four of their last five fixtures and in four of their last five away games, too. Benfica have conceded in eight of their last 10 at home and we can exploit those stats here by backing Benfica to Win and Both Teams to Score.
