BREST V LENS
Lens are moving ever-closer to clinching fifth place, and despite their absences last weekend, they rolled past a Lorient side chasing survival. They should have little trouble handling a similarly injury-hit Brest side here.
Brest scrapped to a draw against Nîmes last weekend without Lasne and Belkebla, but will need far more about them against a Lens side that have displayed a preternatural level of hunger throughout the season.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
FAMALICAO V PORTIMONENSE
FC Famalicao held league leaders Sporting CP to a draw last time out and are unbeaten under their new manager.
Portimonense SC have won successive matches by an aggregate scoreline of 8-1 so are also in a good run of form.
Neither side are having problems scoring at the moment and another entertaining affair is expected here.
Prediction: Both teams to score
GAZIANTEP V KASIMPASA
Gaziantep were beaten 3-1 by Fenerbahce last time out. This was a very disappointing performance by Sa Pinto's side. They were uncharacteristically tame going forward and sloppy at the back. Against Kasimpasa we will see a different Gaziantepspor that controls possession, attacks with more intent and creates more. At home they are a very strong side and should be able to get a win here.
Kasimpasa were held to a draw by Malatyaspor last time out. They did create quite a few chances but were wasteful in front of goal. Can is a realist manager and he knows that before he can instill his own attacking philosophy on this team, he first has to survive this season. They will be cautious here but are very prone to making errors at the back, which their hosts will take advantage of.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
