Atletico Madrid to beat Valencia @ 3/5

Los Colchoneros have climbed up to third in the table thanks to going nine games without defeat in Spain’s top flight, posting six wins during that period following back-to-back victories over Sevilla and Girona. Atletico would still like to be scoring more goals, but Alvaro Morata, Antoine Griezmann and Memphis Depay have all been contributing of late, so the signs are promising. Valencia are only above the relegation zone on goal difference after losing six straight away fixtures in La Liga, failing to score on their last five road trips.

Borussia Dortmund to beat Cologne @ 10/21

With Bayern Munich not in action until Sunday, Dortmund have the chance to go top of the table for a while here. Die Borussen had a bad week when losing 2-0 at Chelsea to crash out of the Champions League and then twice surrendering the lead in a 2-2 draw at Schalke, but had previously rattled off 10 straight wins in all competitions and this is a good chance to get back on track. Cologne have picked up just one point from their last four Bundesliga fixtures, failing to score in any of those matches.

Monza to beat Cremonese @ 4/5

The White and Reds have only lost once in their last seven Serie A games on home turf – and that was a narrow 1-0 defeat by AC Milan. Monza beat Empoli 2-1 in their most recent match at Stadio Brianteo and followed that up with a solid 1-1 draw at Verona. Cremonese are 21 points adrift of Raffaele Palladino’s side and only off the bottom of the table on goal difference, winning just one match all season. Monza prevailed 3-2 when these teams met at Stadio Giovanni Zini two months ago and were 3-0 up that day until easing off late on.

Lens to beat Angers @ 2/7

The Blood and Gold are enjoying a fantastic season in Ligue 1 and lie third in the table after romping to a 4-0 triumph at Clermont last Sunday, when 23-year-old forward Lois Openda, capped six times at international level by Belgium, hit a hat-trick. Lens can boast an impressive record at Stade Bollaert-Delelis, posting 11 wins and a draw from 13 home fixtures. Angers are cut adrift at the bottom of France’s top division, losing 21 of their 27 games, with 21 goals scored and 60 conceded, so this looks a home banker for our European football tips.

RKC Waalwijk to beat Nijmegen @ 6/4

Waalwijk are going along nicely in the Dutch Eredivisie, winning four of their last seven matches and only losing to Ajax and PSV Eindhoven during that period. When facing teams below them in the table, RKC have beaten FC Emmen, Go Ahead Eagles and Fortuna Sittard on home turf by a combined aggregate of 8-2, as well as prevailing 4-1 at Heerenveen and drawing away to Excelsior. Head coach Joseph Oosting and his players will not have forgotten a 6-1 thrashing when visiting Nijmegen just before the World Cup break and will be gunning for revenge.
