Tuesday's Best Match Predictions

1. Chelsea v FC Porto

With Chelsea already leading 2-0 from the first leg, I think they will keep things tight. Porto will have to attack but knowing that if they concede the tie is effectively over they might not really start going for the win until the second half.

2. Huddersfield v Bournemouth

Bournemouth are in pretty good form at the moment. With 4 wins in a row and have averaged three goals per game themselves and should win this against the out of form Huddersfield with the away side capable of getting this total on their own although the home side can chip in with a consolation.

3. Wigan v Sunderland

Wigan (23rd) earned a huge win last time out against the league's worst-performing side at the moment in Doncaster but their record against teams currently in the top-ten of the league table is woeful this season having W2 D1 L15, including a winless run at home of D1 L8 ahead of this. The hosts have also lost on all 4 occasions against the other top-four sides at home this season, all without scoring a single goal. Sunderland (3rd) have the most points per game away from home of anyone in the league and I'd expect them to respond positively to their defeat versus promotion rivals Charlton in their last game, while the visitors have also conceded the least amount of goals on their travels this season (11), having one of the highest number of clean sheets overall in England's top four tiers at the moment.

4. Sheffield Wed v Swansea

We have had 10 goals scored in the last 3 home appearances of Sheffield Wed and also 2 overs in last 3 away matches of Swansea. When both sides met here last season we had 2-2 draw and I expect also at least 3 goals tonight.

5. PSG v Bayern Munich

I think this is a tight call but at these odds willing to go for under 2.50 goals. Bayern Munich will have to attack and make sure that PSG doesn't score. They only need to win in ninety minutes to either force extra time or go through automatically and if they go 1-0 up they may not be quite so adventurous.

6. Newcastle Jets v Perth Glory

Both teams are weak in form as Newcastle Jets lost 7 of their 7 game in a row. The opponent also won only 1 out of 7 matches played recently. But interestingly, their last five h2h games they recorded at least 3 goals in all. This game will be similar.

7. Blackpool v Accrington Stanley

Blackpool are unbeaten in last 14 matches so they will hardly lose today. But Accrington have won their last away game against Oxford United and they also won last h2h matches at this ground so I back guests to stay unbeaten.

8. Oxford United v Shrewsbury

Oxford United come into this meeting with Shrewsbury Town after a fantastic 6-0 victory against Crewe so confidence should be extremely high after that result. Oxford also have a good recent record against Shrewsbury Town having won 3 of the last 4 meetings between the two sides. Oxford look a solid bet here in my opinion.

9. Bradford v Crawley Town

Crawley have been struggling as of late with no wins in their last 7 and scoring just 2 goals in their last 5 matches. Bradford have won 3 of their last 4 matches and are unbeaten at home since losing to Carlisle on the 5th December.

10. Olimpija Ljubljana v NK Bravo

Olimpija Ljubljana will be more motivated here as they need the 3 points here to extend their lead on top of the league. They lost only 1 of 13 matches played at home this season, while the visitors won only 2 of their 13 away matches.

11. Walsall v Tranmere

Tranmere are winless in 5 however there recent performances against Cambridge and Scunthorpe were good despite not getting the victory. They also have the joint 3rd best away record in the league and face a struggling Walsall team who have just 1 win in their last 15 league matches.

12. AFC Wimbledon v Ipswich

Ipswich are in need of a win here to get their playoff push back on track and they face a Wimbledon side who have only 4 wins at home this season.

13. Rotherham v QPR

QPR had no right to come out 4-1 winners against a relegation-threatened Sheffield Wed, who were in some decent form and had just beaten Cardiff 5-0 before that. Coupled with the fact Rangers have next to nothing to play for right now in mid-table, but if that's how this evening's visitors are treating lowly opposition at the moment then I can only envisage another defeat on home soil for Rotherham here. That will be their lose 6th in-a-row.

14. Germany W v Norway W

7 of the last 8 games of German team ended by over 2,5 goals. Furthermore 7 of the last 10 games of Norway also ended so. Expect the same results today.
