Anderlecht to beat FK Gabala –

Having lost each of their four matches in Group C, Gabala have already been eliminated from this season’s Europa League.

As such, the outcome of the match against group leaders Anderlecht is of little importance to them.

The Belgian side, meanwhile, would come very close to securing their progression to the tournament’s knock-out round with a win in Azerbaijan.

And given they are yet to lose in the group – their latest result being a 6-1 win over third-placed Mainz – there is little to suggest they will have many problems.

Ajax to beat Panathinaikos –

Ajax are currently on a 14-match unbeaten run in all competitions – winning 11 – and have also netted 10 goals in their last three.

Having dropped just two points in their four matches so far, they also sit top of Group G, with a win this week enough to see them through.

It is good news for them, then, that they face the woeful Panathinaikos.

Not only do the Greek side sit bottom of the group – having collected just one point – but they are winless in five away from home and have shipped six unanswered goals in their last two matches.

Fiorentina to beat PAOK Salonika – 

This is a simple one.

Fiorentina are unbeaten in eight matches and are also yet to lose at home in all competitions this season.

It is easy to see why they have been so impressive, too, having conceded just one goal in their last four.

PAOK, however, have struggled at both ends, scoring only one goal in their last three and registering just one clean sheet in five.

Considering they have also lost their last three consecutive away matches, it does not look promising for them.

Schalke to beat Nice –

Schalke have undergone a remarkable turnaround since their poor start to the season and are currently on a 10-match unbeaten run – winning eight of those.

That they also boast a 100 per cent record in this season’s Europa League will offer Nice little in the way of optimism.

And rightly so, given that they have lost three of their four group matches, conceding eight on the way.

Schalke, meanwhile, have shipped just two goals in their last six in all competitions and can be relied upon for another positive result.

Shakhtar to beat Turku Konyaspor –

With 20 wins from their 23 matches this season - and just one defeat - Shakhtar are irresistible at the moment.

The Ukranians have also won all but one of their 12 home games this season and top Group H with a 100 per cent record.

Against bottom-placed Konyaspor, it should be a simple evening.

The visitors have picked up just a single point in the group and, having won only one in six on the road, look set for further misery.
