Bologna currently 5th placed host 12th placed Genoa as the race to Scudetto continues. Bologna are the favorites according to form and bookmakers, but I anticipate a very tight game that won’t go easy for them. I anticipate a lot of fouls in this fixture which will result into a minimum of 5 bookings. All their last 5 H2H meetings have seen a total of 29 bookings.
At Brentford community stadium, struggling Brentford host Wolves in the 3rd round of FA Cup. Brentford have lost all their last 5 fixtures and I do not see them stopping a better Wolves side. Wolves have won 3/5 last H2H meetings with Brentford.
If there is a club that wants to win a trophy in English top tier leagues, it is Tottenham following their big spell of not winning anything for so many years. I believe Spurs will try to start their FA campaign with a win since their chances to win the Premier league have started diminishing. Tottenham have won 4/5 last H2H in all competitions
Here comes the Porto derby as 13th placed Boavista welcome 3rd placed FC Porto at Estadio do Bessa Seculo XXI in Porto. Boavista have not won a game in their last 5 fixtures as a win for Porto will see them move 2nd tied on points with log leaders keeping other factors constant. Porto have also won all their last 4 H2H meetings with Boavista
Benfica have won all their last 5 H2H meetings with Arouca scoring a total of 13 goals without the hosts responding. Arouca are in great form and currently sit 10th on the log however 2nd placed Benfica have a better pedigree and I see them winning this game.
Log leaders Inter face Verona as they intend to extend their league lead as the race to Scudetto continues. Inter Milan have won 5/5 last H2H with Verona 3 of these being with margins of 2 goals. Let us go for home win.
Sassuolo are just 2 positions away from relegation following their poor form, losing 4 times from their last 5 fixtures. Fiorentina have not lost a game from their last 5 outings and this has seen them sit 4th on the log. I expect an end to end game as both sides badly need something from this game to keep their seasons alive. 5/5 last H2H meetings saw both teams score
It’s the 3rd round of FA Cup as a big fixture comes our way. Two EPL title contenders this season meet in the FA cup showdown to decide who advances to the next round. Both will want to eliminate the other as Man City is a big threat in EPL meaning this stands as their big chance to win silverware this season. I anticipate an end to end game and at least each side will score a goal. All their last 3 H2H meetings have seen both teams score a goal
At Carlo Castellani stadium, 19th placed Empoli host 3rd placed AC Milan as the race to claim the Scudetto returns from the festive season break.

Empoli have not won a game in their last 5 fixtures and have lost 4/5 last H2H meetings with the Rossoneri.
Juventus are 2 points behind log leaders Inter and here comes 20th placed Salernitana hosting them at Stadio Arechi. Juventus are in high flying not losing a game in their last 10 fixtures. Juventus have also won 3/5 last H2H meetings with Salernitana. Omupiira tuguwe Juventus ajja kukakuba.
