Paul Robinson begins the week with a 10/1 Daily Acca that takes in fixtures from the Premier League, La Liga and Ligue Two. Here are his selections:

- Back BTTS in Brest v Auxerre @ 9/10
- Back Wolves @ 17/20
- Back The Draw in Alaves v Levante @ 12/5

The Acca pays approximately 10/1

Goals at both ends in France

Bet 1: Back BTTS in Brest v Auxerre @ 9/10 - KO 19:45 GMT

The hosts are pushing for promotion to the French top flight and they come into the game on a six match unbeaten streak. Three of those were draws though, and even a victory in their game in hand tonight would see them remain in second place.

The visitors are in 12th, but they are only nine points adrift of the Play-off places - which would become six if they pulled off an unlikely victory here.

It's the goal-side of things that I'm focusing on here though as Auxerre have found the net in four of their last six away from home - including four goal hauls on two occasions.

Brest haven't failed to score at home since their opening home game of the season, but for all their success, it's just four clean sheets from their 12 appearances in front of their own fans.

Wolves to continue to impress

Bet 2: Back Wolves @ 17/20 - KO 20:00 GMT

Newcastle can be a hard time to beat at times, but Wolves should be shorter than they are in the betting given their recent run of form.

Nuno Espírito Santo's side are unbeaten in five in all competitions, and in the league it's three wins on the bounce, and seven from their last 11 in the wider picture.

The Magpies couldn't follow up their 2-1 victory over Manchester City at Spurs last time, but they were only beaten by a late winner. Rafa Benitez's team often raise their game against the elite clubs though, and while Wolves are seventh, they are on a different level to the aforementioned sides.

Away form is also an issue for Newcastle as they have taken just one point from a possible 12 of late away from St James' Park.

Alaves to end losing run

Bet 3: Back The Draw in Alaves v Levante @ 12/5 - KO 20:00 GMT

We finish in Spain for a La Liga fixture that sees Alaves needing to bounce back from a string of defeats.

It had been a highly successful campaign for the hosts prior to their last three games. Defeats to nil against Getafe, Rayo Vallecano and Real Madrid have seen them drop to seventh, however they can overhaul Real Betis with a positive result tonight.

I don't have too much faith in them being to take all three points though as they simply aren't playing well enough. Levante may only well be in 14th, but they are only three points behind Eibar in 10th.

Despite their struggles they have avoided defeat in six of their 11 away fixtures this season, and three of their most recent half dozen have ended all square.
