Leicester City striker - Jamie Vardy
Jamie Vardy has started the season in excellent form

Thursday's Daily Acca was a 7/2 winner for Paul Robinson and he's aiming to make it back to back successes with this 15/2 shot. Here are his selections:

- Back The Draw in Hellas Verona v Sassuolo @ 23/10
- Back Villarreal @ 11/20
- Back BTTS in Southampton v Leicester @ 4/6

The Acca pays approximately 15/2

Sassuolo to have their first draw of the season

Bet 1: Back The Draw in Hellas Verona v Sassuolo @ 23/10 - KO 19:45 BST

We start in Italy for a fixture that sees an underperforming, Sassuolo, travel to Verona.

The visitors finished 11th in Serie A last season, but after seven games of this one, they are down in 17th, having been beaten five times already. They come into this fixture on the back of three straight defeats, but they all came against clubs in the top eight - including Inter and Atalanta who are second and third.

The hosts were promoted back to the top flight via the Play-offs, and they have made a solid enough start, with nine points from their opening eight matches.

A total of three of their eight have ended all square - two of which have come from their opening four at home - and I think that the points will be shared for a third time tonight.

Alaves to be sunk at Villarreal

Bet 2: Back Villarreal @ 11/20 - KO 20:00 BST

The Yellow Submarine are seventh in La Liga, as they start a league campaign without European football for the first time in a while.

Javier Calleja's side are unbeaten at home this term - two draws and two wins - with the victories coming from their two most recent outings.

Opponents, Deportivo Alaves, are in 14th place, and although they have won three times this year, none of them were away from home. On their travels it's one draw and three losses, with all three defeats coming in their last three attempts.

No clean sheets on the South Coast

Bet 3: Back BTTS in Southampton v Leicester @ 4/6 - KO 20:00 BST

The Saints are on a run of four league matches to have goals at both ends, and at home this season, their scorelines have been 1-2, 1-1, 1-3 and 1-4.

As you can tell from that, Ralph Hasenhüttl's men are yet to record a victory at St Mary's this year, but they have at least found the net in all of their outings.

The Foxes have impressed so far this campaign, but it is worth noting that their third place position is largely down to their form at the King Power.

That being said, it was only in a lacklustre display at Old Trafford that saw them fail to score on the road, but they are yet to keep a clean sheet of their own.
