Hoffenheim v Borussia Monchengladbach
Another defeat could be the final straw for under-fire Gladbach boss Adi Hutter. The 3-2 home loss to Eintracht Frankfurt made four successive Bundesliga losses, with a staggering 17 goals conceded.
That has left the Foals just a point off the drop zone and fighting for survival, with Hoffenheim now eyeing the chance to shunt them deeper into the mire.
Hoffenheim are sitting fourth after their run of four straight victories ended with a 2-2 draw at Bayer Leverksuen in midweek.
At home, have won five in a row and scored 2+ in nine of their last 10 Bundesliga outings. They look primed to net at least another couple against the crisis-hit visitors, with over 1.5 Hoffenheim goals paying 4-5 at Bet365.
Zurich v St Gallen
Swiss Super League pacesetters Zurich are eyeing a sixth straight victory in their final game before the lengthy winter shutdown.
The hosts are unbeaten in nine and have a healthy five-point lead over nearest challengers Basel.
On home soil they haven't lost since April, winning seven of their last nine, and can rack up a victory at 10-11 with Bet365 when St Gallen come calling.
The visitors lie third bottom and have taken just a point from four games as well as losing six of seven away trips.
AZ Alkmaar v Twente
Having taken the scalp of champions Ajax last weekend, AZ aim to continue their hot streak against the struggling visitors.
It's now five wins in a row – and eight games unbeaten – for AZ across all competitions as they hit their stride after a poor start to the season.
They are particularly strong at home, winning 12 of their las 14 Eredivisie matches, while Willem are on an awful nine-game winless run, losing the last six on the spin.
Back AZ and over 1.5 goals at 5-11 with Ladbrokes.
