Eibar vs VALENCIA

Eibar are unbeaten in their last four La Liga fixtures on home soil and it would take a brave man to back against them here. Although far from perfect, Eibar are full of confidence and a top half finish looks likely. Valencia are flying but this will be a tough test – the hosts have the quality to cause problems for the visitors.

Valencia have been outstanding so far this campaign and the Spanish giants, currently sitting second in the La Liga table, can pick up another positive result on Saturday night. Marcellino Garcia Toral’s side were seven games unbeaten on the road before losing to Getafe last time out and I’m expecting the visitors to respond after that disappointment. 11/25 for the away side to win OR draw represents excellent value given their recent form.

TIP: Valencia to win OR draw @ 11/25

MONTPELLIER vs Metz

Montpellier are possibly flying higher than they should be but they should have enough to get past Metz on home soil. Sitting in the top half of the table, Montpellier have been solid so far this campaign and fans will be more than satisfied with their current standing. Against lowly Metz, goals could be on the cards – EVS for Montpellier to make a fast start in the first half is a decent price.

The visitors are rock bottom of the Ligue 1 table with just five points from 17 games – a very poor return. Backing Metz to emerge victorious at the present moment would be foolish, the French minnows have now gone eight games without a win. This one could get ugly for the visiting side if Montpellier make an early breakthrough.

TIP: Montpellier to win the first half @ EVS

FIORENTINA vs Genoa

Fiorentina have lost just one of their last seven Serie A games on home soil and another win beckons this weekend. The hosts are usually rock solid in front of their own supporters and it is difficult to back against Fiorentina here. They have scored two goals or more in six of their last seven home fixtures and anther goal fest looks likely.

Genoa were unbeaten in four league games before falling short against Atalanta last time out and that defeat may have damaged their confidence. The visitors earned a positive draw against AS Roma during that decent run of form and punters may be wary of an upset. But taking Fiorentina’s home form into consideration, 11/20 is a fantastic price.

TIP: Fiorentina to win @ 11/20

RB LEIPZIG vs Hertha Berlin

December has not been a good month for RB Leipzig. The hosts have now gone four games without a win but Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men are well priced at 4/7 to end that run here. Now fourth in the Bundesliga table, RB Leipzig could finish the weekend in second spot if results go their way. Look no further than a convincing home win in this contest.

Meanwhile, Hertha Berlin have been very impressive in recent weeks – losing just once in their last five matches in all competitions. Sitting 11th in the table, Hertha are in danger of becoming complacent. Challenging for a top half finish is the primary objective now but a heavy defeat could be on the cards here if Leipzig go for the jugular.

TIP: RB Leipzig to win @ 4/7
