Stuttgart v Bayer Leverkusen – Mercedes-Benz Arena at 14:30 GMT +1 Centre-back Ozan Kabak was the unlikely hero as Stuttgart rescued a valuable share of the points with a 1-1 draw against relegation rivals Nuremberg last weekend. Having fallen behind late in the first-half, VFB courageously fought back to ensure a four-point cushion remains between…

Strømsgodset v Mjøndalen Two big rivals meet at Marienlyst Stadium this Friday night for what will hopefully be a cracker of a fixture. Not too many Eliteserien games are scheduled for a Friday night in 2019 but this is one of the rare exceptions and it should only add to the fiery atmosphere. The two…

Nice v Montpellier – Allianz Riviera at 16:00 GMT +1 live at BT Sport Nice ended an eight-match run without a victory on the road by overcoming relegation-haunted Dijon 1-0 last time out. Head coach Patrick Vieira was pleased with his team’s performance in both boxes and encouraged both his players and Les Aiglons’ supporters…
