The week begins in Serie A, La Liga and the Premier League for Paul Robinson as he has put together a 5/1 Daily Acca. Here are his selections:

- Back Sampdoria @ 11/10
- Back Over 2.5 Goals in Arsenal v Leicester @ 8/15
- Back BTTS in Real Sociedad v Girona @ 20/23

The Acca pays approximately 5/1

Sampdoria to strengthen their European credentials

Bet 1: Back Sampdoria @ 11/10 - KO 19:30 BST

The selection are up in fifth place in the league and while they won't improve on that if they win their game in hand tonight, they will at least close the gap on the top four to one point.

Sampdoria went into the international break on the back of two straight wins, which would have provided a boost having gone three without a victory prior to that - two draws and a defeat to Inter.

The visitors to Genoa this evening are Sassuolo, and they are in eighth place - just one point behind their opponents. They went into the break in poor form though - losing 4-1 at home to AC Milan, and then 2-0 at Napoli. Prior to that it had been two wins, but they have only taken four points from a possible 12 on their travels this term.

Expect goals at the Emirates

Bet 2: Back Over 2.5 Goals in Arsenal v Leicester @ 8/15 - KO 20:00 BST

The Gunners have been going quietly about their business this season and after a slightly shaky start, they are now finding their stride.

Unai Emery's men are on a nine match winning streak in all competitions, and they have been scoring goals for fun. They put five past Fulham prior to the international break, and seven of their nine wins have seen this selection land.

Leicester have been very hit and miss this season, and they were the latter in their last match - a 2-1 home loss to Everton. As far as the goals go, five of their last six in the league have had three goals or more, and they have netted twice themselves in each of their last three away from the King Power Stadium.

Entertainment on the cards in Basque Country

Bet 3: Back BTTS in Real Sociedad v Girona @ 20/23 - KO 20:00 BST

We finish in Spain for a fixture that looks set to have goals at both ends.

Sociedad are in 11th place, and in their eight matches this year they have scored 12 and conceded 11. They returned to winning ways last time out with a 3-1 success at Athletic Club, but it's worth noting that they have taken just one point from a possible nine at home this year, and they are yet to keep a clean sheet on this ground.

Girona are down in 15th place and they have scored 10 and 13 conceded 13 to date. They are in the midst of a difficult run of form having taken just two points from their last four matches, but that at least scored in three of them.

Interestingly however, the visitors are unbeaten on their travels this term - winning at Villarreal, and drawing at Barcelona and Huesca. They scored in each of those matches and kept just the one clean sheet.
