Monday's edition of the Daily Acca sees Paul Robinson take in fixtures from France, Argentina and Brazil, with the treble combining to pay around the 18/1 mark. Here are his selections:

- Back Brest & BTTS @ 13/5
- Back Under 1.5 Goals in Tigre v Argentinos Juniors @ 31/20
- Back Santos to win to nil @ 11/10

The Acca pays approximately 18/1

Brest is best against Nancy

Bet 1: Back Brest & BTTS @ 13/5 - KO 19:45 GMT

The hosts are in third place in Ligue Two, but they can move into second with a win in their game in hand tonight. They are quite a short price to do so, but there is value to be had in them winning while conceding.

They are unbeaten in eight in all competitions, six of which were draws. Interestingly though, they haven't kept a clean sheet in any of their last seven, and their four most recent home scorelines were 4-1, 5-1, 3-2 and 1-1.

Opponents, Nancy, are rock bottom with only five points to their name. Scoring goals has proven to be a huge issue for them - they've netted just four in 13.

However, three of those four goals have come within their last three away matches - they scored once in each of them - and we are getting a great price on this selection at 13/5.

Goals at a premium in Argentina

Bet 2: Back Under 1.5 Goals in Tigre v Argentinos Juniors @ 31/20 - KO 20:00 GMT

The Argentinian Superliga is a division that doesn't scream goals and these two sides have mustered just 13 between them in 21 matches.

Tigre have contributed 11 of those in their 11 outings, but following a pair of 2-2 draws in their first two home games, they have since gone on to lose 2-0 to Huracan, beat Estudiantes 1-0 and draw 1-1 with Lanus.

The visitors prop up the table having taken just six points from a possible 30, and while they are conceding less than a goal a game on average, their measly total of two goals for highlights their problem.

Even more concerning is that both of those goals came in the same match, and since that 2-0 win they have gone nine hours with finding the net. It's also worth noting that this selection would have landed in three of their four away fixtures this term.

Chapecoense to fail again away from home

Bet 3: Back Santos to win to nil @ 11/10 - KO 22:00 GMT

Chapecoense are in real danger of losing their top flight status, and that is largely down to their form on the road.

Away from home, they have played 16 times this year, drawn five and lost 11. They scored just nine goals during that period, and they come into this game sitting second from bottom. An unlikely victory could see them climb out of the relegation zone, but I can't see them achieving it.

In fact, I strongly fancy Santos to win this one to nil. Their results have drastically improved under Cuca, and after looking in danger of being in a relegation battle at one stage, they are now within touching distance of the Copa Libertadores Qualifiers.

A fourth straight home win would see them move into sixth - all three of those victories were to nil - and they have conceded just one goal in their last eight matches in front of their own fans.
