Continental Breakfast: 5 football tips for Saturday's matches
Back these 14/1 football tips from the weekend action in the Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and the Eredivisie.
Leverkusen to beat Nuremberg (14:30)
Second-bottom Nuremberg have earned just three points from their 14 away games in the Bundesliga this season and have the worst travelling record in the division.
They are one of two sides without a victory on the road, and have won one of their last 25 matches in all competitions.
Leverkusen ended a run of three straight defeats with a 1-0 victory away to Stuttgart last weekend and have won all six of their home games against bottom-half sides.
Ajax to beat Groningen & over 2.5 goals (17:30)
Groningen are currently on a run of seven straight victories at home, but that should end here.
They have lost all three games they have played against the top two, including a 2-1 defeat to second-placed PSV in October at the Noordlease Stadion.
Ajax have won 24 of their 30 league games this season, collecting three points directly after each of their Champions League games, while their last four games have produced an average of six goals each.
Nice to beat Caen (19:00)
Nice are second in the Ligue 1 form table, behind only second-placed Lille, having taken 11 points from their last six matches.
Patrick Vieira’s side have won five of their last six matches at the Allianz Riviera and are unbeaten in 12 at home.
Bottom-of-the-league Caen were beaten 1-0 at home to Angers last weekend and have lost six of their last seven games in all competitions, winning just one in 13.
Nimes to beat Bordeaux (19:00)
Nimes come into this in fine form at home, having dropped just four points in their last six matches at the Stade des Costieres and won six of their last nine in all competitions.
They beat Rennes 3-1 last time out and are great value to notch another victory against poor travellers Bordeaux.
Paulo Sousa’s side are currently on an eight-match winless run away from the Matmut Atlantique, losing six and drawing two during that spell, and have the third-worst travelling record in Ligue 1.
Hoffenheim to beat Schalke (19:30)
Schalke had to come from behind to draw 1-1 at second-bottom Nuremberg, and their only win in their last 12 matches in all competitions was against bottom side Hannover.
Huub Stevens’ side have lost nine games in that sequence, including each of their last five at the Veltins Arena.
Hoffenheim’s 2-0 victory over Hertha last weekend took them to within five points of the top four, and they have dropped just two points in their last five league games.
