Molde v Haugesund With 6 games left to play Molde are five points clear at the top of the table. They are unbeaten in 13 games and look set to win the Eliteserien if they keep up this sort of form. The pressure from below has never really come with both Bodo/Glimt and Odd both…

Brentford v Millwall Alas, the Championship returns following the international break and there is a London derby which I like the look of in the form of Brentford versus Millwall. Now we have to be fair in saying that neither of these clubs have had the start to the season that they’d have wanted. Brentford…

FC Lahti v KPV In the previous preview I expected Lahti and HIFK to struggle scoring against each other. However, my analysis was completely wrong, and in hindsight it is rather easy to see why. FC Lahti pressed rather aggressively with several players about fifteen yards on the opposite half, which led to both opportunities…

Liverpool v Leicester Leicester are on a really hot run of form at the moment and, after beating Tottenham 2-1 a couple of weeks ago, comfortably dispatched of Newcastle 5-0 on Sunday.

Lille v Nimes – Stade Pierre-Mauroy at 14:00 GMT+1 Lille’s last outing before the international break sees Les Dogues welcome Nimes to the Stade Pierre-Mauroy. Last season’s Ligue 1 runners-up – when 500/1 outsiders – were expected to regress after a tumultuous summer of comings-and-goings that saw standout stars Nicolas Pepe and Thiago Mendes depart….

Spal v Parma – Stadio Paolo Mazza at 14:00 GMT+1 Spal head coach Leonardo Semplici admitted his team have “lost some of the balance we had last season” after seeing a deflected goal change the game with all-conquering Juventus last weekend. The Biancazzurri were undone either side of half-time in Turin, going down 2-0 against…

Schalke v Koln – VELTINS-Arena at 17:30 GMT+1 Schalke have stormed into the top four in the Bundesliga – above their lightly faltering rivals Borussia Dortmund – after picking up four successive victories. However, none were as eye-catching as last weekend’s 3-1 success at RB Leipzig. The word ‘proud’ was invented for days like today”…
