There was an 11/4 Daily Acca win for Paul Robinson on Sunday and he is aiming to follow that up with a 5/1 success tonight. Here are his selections:

- Back Roma @ 11/20
- Back Metz to win to nil @ 1/1
- Back Kilmarnock @ 19/20

The Acca pays approximately 5/1

Tinkerman to start with a win

Bet 1: Back Roma @ 11/20 - KO 19:30 GMT

Roma come into the game on the back of two disappointments - a derby defeat to Lazio and a Champions League exit against Porto.

Those setbacks were enough for the board to act and sack manager, Eusebio Di Francesco, and swiftly appoint the newly available, Claudio Ranieri.

I have mixed feelings about Ranieri, but he won't get much of a better opportunity to make a winning start as the visitors to Stadio Olimpico are Empoli.

Giuseppe Iachini's side are 17th in Serie A, just one point above the relegation zone. They drew with Parma last time out, but their away record is terrible this season. They are yet to win, and have lost eight of their 12 to date.

French leaders to coast to victory

Bet 2: Back Metz to win to nil @ 1/1 - KO 19:45 GMT

Metz are looking good to go straight back up to Ligue One as they are top of the league - eight points clear of the team in third, with a game in hand.

They are a short price to win this evening, but even money for them to win to nil feels more than fair. It is an outcome that they have achieved in three of their last four at home, and their opponents here have failed to score in any of their last six on the road.

Sochaux are 18th in the table, and are averaging a mere 0.5 goals per away game this season. They have been beaten in nine of their 14 matches on their travels, and it's hard to see them suddenly improving at the league leaders.

More misery for St Mirren

Bet 3: Back Kilmarnock @ 19/20 - KO 19:45 GMT

Kilmarnock don't often win away from home, but they have still been successful in five of their 14 away outings this year, and tonight's they travel to the team who are currently bottom of the SPL.

St Mirren have lost 10 of their 14 in front of their own fans and they come into the fixture on an eight match winless run in all competitions. They were beaten here by Killie earlier in the season and while the selection aren't in great form themselves, there is a clear gulf in class.
