4 tips from Wednesday's European action
Bag a pre-Christmas bonus, with these matches from Italy, the Netherlands, Germany and France.
Fiorentina to beat Sampdoria –
Fiorentina earned an impressive point away to Serie A leaders Napoli last Sunday.
That was La Viola’s fourth match unbeaten, while they have also won three out of four at home.
Sampdoria are unimpressive away from home, beating only strugglers Genoa in their last seven games on the road.
PSV to beat Groningen –
PSV lost 3-0 to Ajax at the weekend, but should bounce back with a win.
The league leaders had won 10 on the spin prior to that defeat and are five points clear at the top after 15 games.
Groningen have lost five of their last eight in the Eredivisie and were held to a 2-2 draw by second-bottom Roda on Sunday.
Bayer Leverkusen to beat Werder Bremen –
Leverkusen won 2-0 away to Stuttgart last Friday to extend their unbeaten run to 11 matches in all competitions.
They are also yet to lose at home this season, winning four and drawing four.
Werder Bremen won at the weekend as well, beating out-of-form Dortmund 1-0, but have won just one of their eight away games this season.
Nice to beat Lille –
Nice came from behind to beat fifth-placed Nantes on Sunday, and have won five of their last eight matches in all competitions.
Lucien Favre’s side have also won back-to-back away games in Ligue 1 for the first time this season.
Lille were beaten 3-1 by Paris Saint-Germain on Saturday and have now lost three out of five.
