Saturday Night Fiver: 5 evening picks from across Europe
From Bramall Lane to the bar, fund your night out with these picks from Germany, England, France, Italy and the Netherlands.
Bayern to beat Borussia Monchengladbach – (17:30)
Bayern weren’t at their best in midweek, but still edged past Anderlecht in the Champions League.
That was their fifth consecutive victory in all competitions and 10th without defeat.
Gladbach have won three out of four, but drew 1-1 with Mainz and were thrashed 5-1 by Leverkusen in their last two at home.
Sheffield United to beat Birmingham – (17:30)
Sheffield United’s four-game winning run at home came to an end in a 5-4 defeat to Fulham in midweek, but they should bounce back against Birmingham, who are awful.
The Blues have taken one point from nine away games this season, losing each of their last three 2-0.
They’ve only scored three goals on the road, one of which was a 90th-minute consolation in a 6-1 defeat at Hull.
Montpellier to beat Lille – (19:00)
Montpellier ended Lyon’s six-match winning streak last time out with an impressive 0-0 draw away from home.
La Palliade have also taken a point each from matches against Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco.
They were also an 88th-minute equaliser away from victory against Amiens in their last home game.
Second-bottom Lille have lost four out of six on the road and will be no match for their hosts.
Inter to beat Cagliari (19:45)
Inter are still unbeaten this season, with 10 wins and three draws in Serie A so far.
The Nerazzurri have scored two or more goals in five of their seven away games, beating both Lazio and Roma 3-1 on their travels.
They should see off a Cagliari side that have lost three and won two of their last five at home, with those victories coming against the league’s bottom two.
Heracles to beat NAC Breda – (19:45)
Heracles have won four, drawn two and lost one of their Eredivisie home games this season, and beat Ajax on the opening day.
Only champions Feyenoord have beaten John Stegeman’s side at the Polman Stadion, and there’s little chance of defeat when they host NAC Breda.
The visitors have taken two points from their last six Eredivisie matches, and were pumped 8-0 by Ajax last time out.
