There isn't much to like in either side's chances in this one. Aachen are bottom having won only 3 games this season. Ingolstadt 13th haven't fared a great deal better. However their recent form is encouraging, unbeaten in 5 though they have had too many draws in that sequence. I think Die Schanzer will just edge this one at Sportpark.
I am taking a punt on this one, Streda simply are not a good side having lost 20 of 25 games. However the visiting Ruzomberok do not give anyone any confidence to bet on them with only one win since November. The odds though are according generous for an away win and I know that Ales Krecek's side won there on their last trip in August.
The promotion battle in league one is a real thriller, Sheffield United currently lie second and may not be able to catch Charlton but are embroiled in a real battle to hold off local rivals Sheffield Wednesday.
Their home form has been exemplary with 14 wins from 20 matches and they will need to win their remaining home games if they are to secure promotion back to the Championship. Bournemouth are a mid table team with average away form. I can't see them troubling the Blades.
Brentford have run into some good form at just the right time of the season launching them towards a run at the play offs. They will fancy turning 4 successive wins into 5 against visitors Bury. The Shakers are not yet safe from the threat of relegation and are unbeaten in 3 but don't travel well, they haven't won away from home this year. Full of confidence I see Brentford winning again.
Leicester are not quite out of the play off mix under the stewardship of Nigel Pearson especially as they have a game in hand on some of their rivals currently ahead of them. They do though have to galvanise themselves for a run of wins starting with this fixture against bottom placed Doncaster.
Doncaster have massive motivation to go for the three points themselves but their ploy of signing a number of high profile loanees has not appeared to work and their form continues to be poor. If Leicester are to continue to have any chance of making the top 6 they have to win this one and I think they will.
With Crystal Palace safely encamped in midtable, their form of late has just dipped. A trip to St Andrews to face a fired up Blues side who are chasing a play off place might be a tough ask. 2 successive away wins mean that Chris Hughton's side will be full of confidence and they have lost only once at home this season. I predict a comfortable home win.
A good game in prospect at the Mercedes-Benz Arena. Stuttgart have quietly put together a good run of form, unbeaten in 6 with 4 wins in that time and a sensational 4-4 draw away at leaders Dortmund last week. Mainz are no pushovers as their latest 3-1 win at Bremen shows, but I cannot see them getting two positive results away from home in succession.
Poznan entertain bottom club Cracovia Krakow hoping to maintain their recent revival. 2 successive wins after a run of 5 defeats in 6 suggest that they have turned the corner and can concentrate on putting pressure on the 5 teams above them. Their home record is good and they don't concede many there. With Krakow having scored the least goals away from home, I can see a home win and a clean sheet.
Santa Clares are the only side from the Azores to have played in the Portuguese top league and they will be amongst the favourites for promotion this season. They are currently second having won 4 of their last 6 games. Madeira meanwhile have not picked up a win since the last week of August and are languishing near the bottom.
I take the home side to rack up an easy three points.
