The Daily Acca: Roma to lay down an early marker at Stadio Olimpico

Roma won't get much of a better chance to record a vital victory
Roma won't get much of a better chance to record a vital victory

Paul Robinson has picked out a 9/2 treble for Sunday's Daily Acca and it covers Serie A, La Liga and Ligue One. Here are his selections:

- Back Roma/Roma @ 4/7
- Back Levante +1 Goal @ 6/4
- Back Lyon @ 4/9

The Acca pays approximately 9/2

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

The hosts have dropped to fifth following a run of form that has seen them win just one of their last seven Serie A outings. That victory did come in their most recent game however - a 1-0 success at Verona - and they face the easiest fixture in top flight Italian football this evening.

The visitors to the Olympic Stadium are Benevento and they are bottom of the table having taken a mere seven points from their 23 matches to date this term.

All seven of those points have come in front of their own fans, and on their travels it's played 11, lost 11 - conceding 25 goals and scoring just three.

I can't imagine that Eusebio Di Francesco's side will hang around here and they won't want the crowd to get restless. It's also worth noting that Benevento have been behind at the break in three of their last four away from home.

Bet 2: Back Levante +1 Goal @ 6/4 - KO 19:45 GMT

Valencia have now lost their last four game straight in all competitions and while they are still in a healthy position in La Liga, I think they could prove vulnerable for win purposes today.

Levante are only 17th in the table but they drew 2-2 with Real Madrid last time out and prior to that they also drew 2-2 at Deportivo. What I like most however is that away from home they have achieved positive results in seven of their 10 this year - and one of the three defeats was at Barcelona.

Marcelino García Toral's men have now lost two of their last three in the league at the Mestalla, and I don't have any faith in them against a Levante team who desperately need the points.

Bet 3: Back Lyon @ 4/9 - KO 20:00 GMT

We conclude in France as Lyon should win at home to Rennes.

The visitors come into the game on the back of three straight defeats in all competitions and they have recorded just three wins in 10 - the other seven were losses.

The selection got back to winning ways on Wednesday as they put two defeats behind them by beating Monpellier in the Coupe de France. The six points dropped in Ligue One has seen them drop to fourth, but if they win their game in hand tonight, they will be back within one of Marseille and two of Monaco.

In their last league match on this ground they beat PSG 2-1 and as Rennes are in such poor form, this should prove to be a bit of a formality for Bruno Génésio's side.
