Full House

Strong draws are thin on the ground this weekend; just two - St Pauli v Freiburg and Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United. Weaker draws are Sporting de Gijon v Hercules, Wigan Athletic v Fulham, Lens v St Etienne, Bayer Leverkusen v Borussia Dortmund, Cagliari v Palermo and Brescia v Parma. Home value picks are Auxerre (2.04) v Monaco, Brest (2.02) v Caen, Olympique Marseille (1.87) v Bordeaux, Nuremburg (2.14) v Borussia Moenchengladbach, Schalke '04 (2.22) v Hamburg, Kaiserslautern (1.98) v Koln and Birmingham City (2.56) v Aston Villa while AS Roma look value at 2.06 to win away to Cesena.

I'm a little concerned that some of the form is now several weeks old in France and Germany as they emerge from their winter hibernation, but it's good to have a full slate of matches again.
