Monday is all about Monday Night Football, as well as La Liga and France's Ligue Two for Paul Robinson, and his Daily Acca combines to pay a shade over 17/1. Here are his selections:

- Back Metz @ 4/7
- Back Fulham @ 12/5
- Back The Draw in Espanyol v Athletic Club @ 12/5

The Acca pays approximately 17/1

Metz to move clear at the top

Bet 1: Back Metz @ 4/7 - KO 19:45 GMT

The hosts lead the way in Ligue Two and they can go four points clear at the top with a victory this evening. I don't expect them to waste that opportunity, and I'm not overly concerned by the fact that they were beaten in the cup during the week.

Metz put a couple of defeats behind them by taking seven points from their last three games and at home this season they have won four of their five matches.

Auxerre are in miserable form and they find themselves down in 18th place. They have won just one of their last eight league outings, and they racked up six defeats during that period. Away from home it's three straight losses to nil, and it's hard to imagine them turning that around against the team at the top.

Fulham to take the three points back to London

Bet 2: Back Fulham @ 12/5 - KO 20:00 GMT

This is what we tend to call a six-pointer as Fulham travel to Huddersfield with the pair of them at the foot of the table.

Only the Cottagers can lay claim to a league victory this season, and that was all the way back in August, at home to Burnley.

Huddersfield are the favourites to win tonight, which is quite surprising given the fact that they haven't even scored at home this year. They have played five, lost four and drawn one, and that includes visits from Cardiff and Crystal Palace.

Obviously the Fulham defence needs plenty of work, but at least they have goals in their team, and I definitely think that they are the value at 12/5.

Joe Dyer is tipping goals in this game.

Espanyol's winning run to come to an end

Bet 3: Back The Draw in Espanyol v Athletic Club @ 12/5 - KO 20:00 GMT

We finish in Spain for what will hopefully be Athletic Club's eighth draw of the campaign.

The visitors are scratching around in 17th place in La Liga, but they have only been beaten twice in 10 outings. The problem has been winning games, as they've only beaten Leganes this term - and that came on the opening weekend.

Expanyol are doing really well in comparison as they are in fifth, and would actually go second with the three points this evening. They have taken maximum points from their five home matches, but with Bilbao proving so hard to beat this year, I think that they will have to settle for a point.
