Fiorentina v Juventus – Friday 19:45
Gonzalo Higuain, Juventus
A hat-trick last weekend means Gonzalo Higuain is now just one behind Paulo Dybala at the top of the Juventus scoring charts. With Dybala still out injured Higuain is clearly the main threat and he’s been getting more shots off as a result. This season he’s averaged a shot every 25.6 minutes but he’s improved that to one every 20 minutes over their last six games. Furthermore, he’s scored away at Fiorentina in each of the past three seasons and since La Viola are looking less than secure at the back right now having conceded eight times in their last three games he’ll fancy his chances of making it four years in a row.Bet £10 Get £30
B. Dortmund v Hamburg – Saturday 14:30
Michy Batshuayi, B. Dortmund
Having completed a deadline day move to Dortmund in January it seems Michy Batshuayi has already become a fan favourite at his new club as he was involved in all three goals on his debut, scoring two of them. The Black and Yellows have won five of their eight games against bottom-six sides this season while scoring 18 goals and with the Belgian international set to make his home debut we expect him to score again. With few other options to lead the attack he’s set to be the main man and in the six times he’s completed the full 90 minutes this season he’s scored 10 goals and provided three assists. Furthermore, he is up against a Hamburg side who’ve lost six of their seven games against the top-six this season while conceding an average of two goals per game.
Malaga v Atletico Madrid – Saturday 15:15
Diego Costa, Atletico Madrid
Diego Costa is the only player who could score a goal and get sent off on his debut for celebrating with the fans. His long awaited return to Madrid has been somewhat intermittent so far with a ban and an injury but it seems he is back to full fitness now. Since his return he’s either scored or created an assist in five out of his six games and his partnership with Antoine Griezmann up top has quickly become a key part of Simeone’s side. Malaga have lost five of their last seven winless games having lost to Las Palmas last time out in a vital six pointer which put them four points adrift at the bottom of the table. Furthermore, Atletico have won all six of their games against the bottom five this season games while scoring 16 goals.
Southampton v Liverpool – Sunday 16:30
Mohamed Salah, Liverpool
Mohamed Salah will relish the opportunity of playing the Saints again after he managed to score twice in the reverse fixture in a 3-0 win for the Reds. The Egyptian has scored 21 goals in 25 games this season and seemingly nothing can stop him at the moment. On the road in recent weeks he’s managed eight goals in as many games and we think he will continue this record against a Southampton side that has just three points from 10 games against the current top eight this season while conceding 19 goals.
