Lille have been one of our favourites this season and can further tighten their grip on second place in Ligue 1 with a win over Monaco this evening.
It is almost crazy to think they were in genuine relegation trouble this time last year, but Christophe Galtier has changed things around and their young side is garnering admiring glances from across Europe.
Monaco have had a bit of a nightmare campaign but have built themselves a nice cushion over the bottom three following a run of six unbeaten – a streak which makes the initial sacking of Leonardo Jardim appear even more bizarre due to their improvement since his return.
However, they are yet to win on the road in 2019 and while they can trouble Lille, this game is likely to see the end of their recent run.
Our second pick comes from the Bundesliga where Borussia Monchengladbach will look to put their home woes behind them against Freiburg.
Die Fohlen have lost their last three on their own patch, conceding at least three goals in the process, and need to get back on track as they aim for a Champions League finish.
Freiburg could be the perfect opponents when you consider they have won just two of their last 22 Bundesliga matches on the road and have lost on the last four occasions these two have met.
Gladbach’s recent defensive record makes them vulnerable although they are still a quality outfit and can bounce back here.
