Strasbourg v Monaco – Friday 19:45

Radamel Falcao, Monaco

Strasbourg have lost seven of their last 10 league games, conceding at least twice in each of these defeats and only managing to beat Troyes and Dijon at home in this time, with these two sides holding the worst away records in Ligue 1 this season. Falcao will relish the opportunity to get back on the scoresheet having been ruled out since the beginning of February. Only PSG have more goals than Monaco this season, and they’ve won nine of their last 13 unbeaten games, scoring more than two goals per game in this time. The Columbian striker has a tally of 17 goals in 20 league appearances this term, and such is his consistency that he hasn’t gone more than three games without a goal, while he scored twice in his last game against the hosts.

Bayern Munich v Hamburg – Saturday 14:30

Robert Lewandowski, Bayern Munich

Since the start of the season Robert Lewandowski hasn’t gone more than a single game without a goal, finding the back of the net every 88 minutes and scoring seven goals more than any other player in the Bundesliga. Added to that, Bayern have won 16 of their 18 games in all competitions this season at the Allianz Arena, scoring more than two goals in 12 of these at an average of more than three per game. What’s more, Hamburg have conceded at least eight times in three of their last five trips to Bayern and they lost the other two 5-0 and 3-1. The Polish international netted a 54 minute hat-trick in this fixture last term and is as close to a banker to score as they come.

Fiorentina v Benevento – Sunday 11:30, BT Sport 3

Giovanni Simeone, Fiorentina

Following their win over Chievo last time out, Fiorentina have now been victorious in five of their seven games hosting those outside the top eight this term, bagging themselves at least two goals in four of these wins. Benevento on the other hand, have lost all 13 of their road trips this season, conceding more than a solitary goal in 10 of these including each of their last four. If anyone in Stefano Pioli’s side are to get on the scoreboard it seems most likely to be Giovanni Simeone, who has two goals more than any other teammate so far with seven. Furthermore, he’s played the full 90 minutes in six of their last eight, bagging himself a couple of goals in the process, and the hosts will be looking to repeat the 3-0 domination between the sides earlier in the season as they try to honour the sudden death of their captain a week ago.

Arsenal v Watford – Sunday 13:30, Sky Sports

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Arsenal

Although Arsenal have lost five of their last six in all competitions, we expect a response at the Emirates in this one. In fact, the Gunners have won all nine of their home league games excluding visits from the Big Six, scoring more than a single strike in eight of these, while the Hornets have lost six of their last seven on the road and conceded at least twice in four. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has already found the back of the net in the league on two separate occasions since arriving in North London, both coming in his only two games against teams outside the current top six. That takes his season tally in England and Germany to 23 in 29 games in all competitions, and at evens he looks like the bet of the weekend.
