Fiorentina vs Lazio

After a run of really good results and long undefeated streak, Viola suffered 3:1 defeat away to Atalanta last weekend. They took the lead first but soon found themselves being outplayed by far stronger opponent.
Lazio used the momentum of Roma being under pressure with CL game and managed to get convincing 3:0 victory over local rivals. The side is now six points behind CL placed Inter and needs to seek for a victory here.
The hosts should have no fresh injury worries. Lazio will miss midfielder Berisha (8/0) and fullback Lukaku (7/0) with goalkeeper Strakosha (25/0) being doubtful for the moment.

Koln vs Bielefeld

Koln didn’t have much difficulties winning away to Ingolstadt last weekend with a 1:2 result, conceding a goal very late into the match where they weren’t threatened much. The side now has three wins in a row and leads the table with just a point more than third-placed team.

Norwich vs Swansea

Norwich passed over Millwall 1:3 away from home, in maybe bit more difficult game than what was expected. The hosts didn’t surrender and had a nice amount of chances, but the Canaries looked like a more experienced side. It was their third victory in a row, as they remain first at the table.
Swansea deserved their victory in a 2:0 win over Bolton. It came late, with two goals inside the last fifteen minutes, however, the Swans were the ones who dominated the game and missed great chances before the lead, including a penalty kick. They remain in the mid-table positions with seven points less than the play-off zone.

AZ Alkmaar vs Sittard

AZ Alkmaar disappointed losing on the road to Willem II 2:1. They stood quickly two goals back in the scoreline and failed to present themselves more concrete even though they had the ball possession. The side needs a momentum change coming from exclusion in the Dutch semifinals against the very same opponent.
Sittard had the double goal lead after thirty minutes at home against Heerenveen, but as soon as they scored second the team didn’t look convincing. They got completely outplayed in the second halftime and couldn’t handle the pressure at all. The side is just above the playout zone now.

Hull City vs Birmingham

The home side are just 6 points behind the play off places and need to really kick on in the next few games. Hull City have won 13 from 34 games, 8 draws and 13 defeats. Hull have scored and conceded 48 goals from 34 games. they’ve been very leaky in defence and seem to be scoring goals for fun too. They are 3 points behind their opponents as Birmingham City have 3 more points than them, so a win vs Birmingham will see them joint on points with the midlands side.
Hull fans have seen BTTS in their last 3 games. they lost 5-1 vs Brentford and then drew with the Millers 2-2 at home, also their last game was a 2-1 defeat vs Millwall. I’d expect to see goals here. If the table was based on home form alone then Hull City would be in 8th. They’re good at home.

Holstein Kiel vs Union Berlin

After two draws in the league, Holstein Kiel responded with far better performance away to Bochum and celebrated a 3:1 victory. It was all over in the first halftime with all three goals scored back then. The side is now just two points behind third Union and a victory here is very much needed.
After two victories in a row, Union Berlin disappointed a bit against in-form Bielefeld at home taking a point in a 1:1 game. They had the lead first but appeared more than defensive than what was supposed to be in the continuation.

Arsenal wish to finish the season among top 4 in the Premier League, which would mean booking a ticket to the Champions League. Unfortunately for the Gunners, two other teams have basically the same plans, so getting there won’t be easy.
But, right now, Arsenal are in a pretty good chance to move one place upwards. Man United, who have 1 point more play Liverpool this round, which means that the Gunners could overtake their positions. But, for that, they need to beat Southampton.
