Manchester United - Arsenal
Match Odds: Manchester United 2.0, Draw 3.20, Arsenal 4.0 (William Hill)

Peter Staunton - Goal.com International
Man Utd 3-0 Arsenal

The hosts need to bounce back from the Liverpool defeat and a depleted Arsenal's season is in danger of unravelling.
Paul Macdonald - Goal.com International
Man Utd 2-1 Arsenal


United have had a week to fester on their defeat to Liverpool, while the Gunners will be physically and mentally shattered following their endeavours against Barcelona. Fergie's side will have the edge.
Patrick Reilly - Goal.com International
Man Utd 2-0 Arsenal


Don't expect Sir Alex Ferguson to do his old foe Arsene Wenger any favours. Arsenal's season is falling apart and a fresher United should pick them off and see the Red Devils go one step closer to lifting their first FA Cup since 2004.

Sevilla - Barcelona
Match Odds: Sevilla 6.50, Draw 4.50, Barcelona 1.44 (William Hill)

Peter Staunton - Goal.com International
Sevilla 1-2 Barcelona

Barca haven't had their usual fluency in front of goal recently but should command enough of the play to make a breakthrough.
Paul Macdonald - Goal.com International
Sevilla 1-3 Barcelona



Nervionenses' home form has been a major concern this season, and Barca should not slip up in their bid to clinch the Spanish title once again.
Patrick Reilly - Goal.com International
Sevilla 2-3 Barcelona



Last season's clash was an epic 3-2 and the last five games between these sides have all gone over 3.5 goals. Sevilla - Barca games don't have the allure of previous years but goals and plenty of them should be the outcome of an entertaining game.


Roma - Lazio
Match Odds: Roma 2.40, Draw 3.10, Lazio 3.10 (William Hill)

Peter Staunton - Goal.com International
Roma 1-1 Lazio

Parochial pride is at stake and if Roma play to their collective strength they can match Lazio.
Paul Macdonald - Goal.com International
Roma 1-1 Lazio



A draw suits neither side's ambitions, but may be what they are forced to accept, with both struggling for consistency in Serie A.
Patrick Reilly - Goal.com International
Roma 1-3 Lazio



Oh how the tides have turned in the Rome derby. The Giallorossi got murdered in midweek in Donetsk and with a full week of preparation anticipate Lazio to dish out some further punishment. Having lost the last three in this fixture the Champions League hopefuls should rack up three points and complete another miserable week for their city rivals.
