We are back with another instalment of our picks for the weekend and we hope for better luck in this first week of March after getting really close the past two weeks.
Sevilla’s inexplicable failure to score against Barca’s leaky defence proved costly and the 1-1 draw between PSV and Ajax dashed our hopes of at least reclaiming our stake.

Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund: Over 2.5 goals @1.30
We get down to business in the German Bundesliga in Der Klassiker, Germany’s biggest derby and a sure place to harvest goals.
Eight of the last ten in this fixture has seen at least three goals and there’s nothing to suggest this one won’t continue in the same vein.
After undergoing what seem to be a mid season wobble, the Bavarians are back atop their perch on the log while Dortmund appears to have found some consistency with a run of three straight wins in all competitions.
Edin Terzic’s Yellow Submarines are 5th, three points off the top four and with a crucial midweek Champions League tie against Sevilla coming up, the Serb faces a selection dilemma. Does he prioritise the league or should the enticing prospect of a quarterfinal berth take precedence?
Decisions, decisions but whatever lineup he decides to put out, there should be goals.
Rangers vs St Mirren: Rangers to win @1.30
What a weekend it promises to be for Steven Gerrard Gers who could end a decade-long title drought if they win and arch-rivals Celtic drop points at Dundee.
Rangers have been nothing short of sensational this season, unbeaten in the league and have won their last five in all competitions.
St Mirren snapped a five-game winless run with victory over Ross County last time out, but with destiny beckoning for Gerrard and co, there should be only one winner at the Ibrox Stadium.
Juventus vs Lazio: Draw or GG @1.45
It appears increasingly unlikely that the Old Lady’s grip on the Scudetto will be loosened this season for the first time in what seems like forever.
Lazio, meanwhile, have failed to hit the heights of last season and have hit a worrying slump and have lost three of their last four games.
Andrea Pirlo is likely to name a starting XI with an eye on the UCL must win against Porto next week so expect a much changed lineup with top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo likely to sit this one out.
Five of the last in this series has seen both sides score and there could be more of the same on Saturday or it could well end in a stalemate.
Eintracht Frankfurt vs Stuttgart: Over 2.5 goals @1.50
Nine of the last ten in this fixture have featured three or more goals with both sides also scoring in seven of those games.
Frankfurt have kept just one clean sheet in nine games while Stuttgart have two shutouts in ten.
Brentford vs Rotherham: Brentford to win @1.40
One never quite knows what to expect with Thomas Frank’s maddeningly inconsistent Bees.
Their short renaissance ended with defeat at leaders Norwich and they’re now ten points off the top and only in the automatic qualification places on goals difference, a once seemingly smooth qualification quest made messy by a run of four defeats in six games.
Against relegation-threatened Rotherham, a win is really nonnegotiable especially with Watford likely to do the business against Nottingham.
Crusaders vs Warrenpoint: Crusaders to win @1.35
We berth in Northern Ireland where 3rd-placed Crusaders take on 9th-placed Warrenpoint at the Seaview.
Crusaders are another Jekyll and Hyde side seemingly incapable of stringing two wins together and alternate between victory and loss.
They won at 4th-placed Larne last time out but this being Crusaders who knows what will happen?
Warrenpoint ended a 4-game winless run with a 4-1 win against bottom side Dungannon Swifts so should approach the game in good spirits.
But Crusaders have won the last 10 in this fixture, an impressive record and worthy of backing.
Young Boys vs Vaduz: Young Boys to win @1.25
First against last, only one outcome here.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Crystal Palace: Spurs to win at @1.45
Spurs were lucky to take all three points at Craven Cottage after a controversial VAR decision denied Scott Parker’s side what would have been a well-deserved equaliser.
Roy Hodgson’s side eked out an anodyne goalless draw with Manchester United last time out to make it two goalless stalemates in succession.
José Mourinho’s Spurs have often failed to impress this season and have dropped points in unexpected circumstances but the quest for Champions League qualification should push them over the line against the Eagles.
Slavia Prague vs Banik Ostrava: Slavia Prague to win @1.21
Slavia warmed up for this tie with a 10-3 annihilation of Karlovy Vary in the Cup and the only worry is that they haven’t exhausted their goals ahead of this tie.
In any event, the leaders should have enough left in the tank to see off Ostrava.
Ajax vs FC Groningen: Ajax to win @1.23
Ajax are unbeaten in nine and have won eight in that run.
They face a Groningen side in good form after a run of four games without a loss and victories in their last two.
That run should come to an end at the Amsterdam Arena.
