It's Italy, England and France for Paul Robinson this evening as he aims to head into the weekend with a 4/1 Daily Acca winner. Here are his selections:

- Back BTTS in Chievo v Roma @ 8/11
- Back BTTS in Aston Villa v Sheffield United @ 6/10
- Back BTTS in Dijon v Marseille @ 8/11

The Acca pays approximately 4/1

Italian fixture to entertain

Bet 1: Back BTTS in Chievo v Roma @ 8/11 - KO 19:30 GMT

We begin in Italy for the Serie A fixture between Chievo and Roma that should have goals at both ends.

The hosts may well be bottom of the table, but they have scored five goals across their last two games - including three against Fiorentina. Unfortunately for them, they conceded six themselves, and took just one point from a possible six.

At home, this selection would have landed in four of their last five, with matches against Lazio and Inter finishing 1-1.

Roma are really struggling at the back this term as they have conceded 30 goals in 22 outings, and Fiorentina beat them 7-1 in the Coppa Italia on January 30th. They have kept just three away clean sheets this season, and two of those were in the early weeks of the campaign.

More of the same at Villa Park

Bet 2: Back BTTS in Aston Villa v Sheffield United @ 6/10 - KO 19:45 GMT

If Aston Villa want to make the play-offs again this year, they need to put a consistent run of victories together. They sit in ninth place - four points behind sixth and seven behind fifth, as well as having played a game more.

Dean Smith's men kept a clean sheet at Reading last weekend, but that was a rarity, and I can't see them stopping Sheffield United from finding the net.

The Blades are pushing for automatic promotion - they sit in third, three points off the top two - and they have only failed to score in one of their last seven away matches.

The Villans are on a run of seven in a row at Villa Park to see BTTS backers collect, and the same can be said for two of United's last four away from Bramall Lane.

Keen as mustard for goals at Dijon

Bet 3: Back BTTS in Dijon v Marseille @ 8/11 - KO 19:45 GMT

Our final selection comes from France as I again fancy both teams to score, this time in the Ligue One fixture between Dijon and Marseille.

Dijon are 16th in the standings, and after winning their opening three matches of the season, they have only gone on to record another two victories.

Marseille are in seventh, and they picked up a much needed success against Bordeaux on Tuesday. Prior to that it had been three defeats in four, and just one win in 12 in all competitions.

As far as the goals go, five of Marseille's last six in the league have had goals at both ends and Dijon have only kept three home clean sheets all year. Expect goals in this one.
