Inter have conceded 10 goals away from home, they have the 4th best away record in the league. Fiorentina scored against Inter last time out in the cup, Inter winning in extra time then. I expect Inter to have too much for the home side here but can see them conceding in the process. Inter have conceded in 4 of their last 5 away games.
The visitors are favourites to get a victory here but I don't think backing a team that have won just two of their last six away matches is the right thing to do here. The hosts are unbeaten in their last four home matches and have won three during that time. I think the visitors are good enough to get a draw against the hosts and that's what I'm going for here.
Bayern Munich is at the top of their league table and more so losing this game will not change their position. Hertha Berlin on the other hand can’t afford to lose this game because if they do, they will go into the relegation zone. I strongly believe Hertha Berlin will do everything possible to win this so as to avoid going back to a lower division.
4. Benfica v Guimaraes
Any results apart from a win would be detrimental to the progress of Benfica. Benfica as at now are out of the European Champions League places where Benfica are 3 points behind. Benfica have won 7 straight head to head games at home against Guimaraes in the Portuguese Primeira Liga; hence Benfica are likely to win.
5. Gillingham v Lincoln City
Lincoln have the joint best away record in the league, taking 26 from 11 games. They have won 5 of their last 5 away games in the league. Gillingham have conceded more goals than they have scored at home this season, and have only took 17 points.
6. Erzgebirge Aue v Hamburg
We have had only 1 result with both sides scoring in the last 4 matches played by Aue and two such results in HSV's performances at the same time. Also in the last 3 h2h clashes between these two teams, we have had always only one side scoring. A repeat of the same might be seen today.
7. Samsunspor v Bandirmaspor
Bandirmaspor are in decent form with wins in 5 of their last 7 games. They have tied this team 2 straight meetings so could sway either way.
8. Swansea v Norwich
Norwich have won this fixture the last 3 times, keeping 2 clean sheets out the 3. The gap at the top has got smaller due to Norwich dropping points, but I see them getting back to winning ways in this must win for the away side. If they don’t win Brentford have the chance to close the gap. Norwich have the best away record in the Championship, taking 26 points from 23 games.
9. CD Alaves v Valladolid
Valladolid have won none of their last four league matches. However, they are unbeaten in their last seven away matches in all competitions. CD Alaves have lost four of their last five matches in all competitions.
10. Maritimo v Sporting
Sporting are on a 3 game winning streak at away games in the Portuguese Primeira. This particular game as not been easy for Sporting as Sporting have not won at Maritimo in 5 straight head to head games in all competitions. I think this time around Sporting have what it takes to likely beat Maritimo at their own backyard.
11. Bengaluru v Chennaiyin
Bengalura have won the last two home fixtures against Chennaiyin, and would expect them to make it a hat trick. Bengalura will hope to go on a winning streak after getting a much needed win last time out when they won 2-0 away.
12. Vojvodina v FK Backa Topola
This is opening game at Serbian league after the winter break. I expect low scored game here because both teams will play good at defense.
13. ACS Sepsi v CSM Politehnica Iasi
ACS Sepsi have won 3 of the last 4 head to head games against Politehnica Iasi in all competitions. Politehnica Iasi are on a 5 game losing streak in the Romanian Liga 1; hence Sepsi are more likely to win at home.
14. St Pauli v Sandhausen
The two teams are currently performing poorly and have a weak standard in their league table even the visitors in this game are in relegation. I think the game will end with no goals or few goals because they are likely going to maintain their position. Besides St. Pauli will not allow Sandhausen to score them and Sandhausen will also be defensive in this game as they try not concede a goal but have 1 or 2 to win the game.
15. Rio Ave v Nacional
Rio Ave won this fixture last time out winning 1-0 away. They need to start getting wins, and would expect them to make home advantage count here. Nacional have only scored 4 goals away from home.
