There are some huge matches across Europe today and Paul Robinson has picked out a 13/1 treble across England, Spain and France. Here are his selections:

- Back Liverpool @ 2/1
- Back Barcelona & BTTS @ 7/5
- Back BTTS in Nantes v PSG @ 1/1

The Acca pays approximately 13/1

Bet 1: Back Liverpool @ 2/1 - KO 16:00 GMT

It's not often that you'll be able to back Liverpool at 2/1 to win at home and even though they are facing Manchester City, it's just too big to turn down.

On their day, the hosts are one of the best teams in the world - especially going forward. This is of course their first match since the departure of Philippe Coutinho, but they have won plenty of games without him before and it isn't like they are short of quality in that area of the field.

Virgil van Dijk looked impressive on his debut at the back for Liverpool and he even scored the winner at the Kop end. That victory extended their unbeaten run to 17 outings in all competitions, and they haven't lost at home since April of last season.

We all know how impressive Man City have been this year but they are conceding goals and have at times scraped their way past opponents who are far inferior than today's.

They should have lost at Crystal Palace in their last away match and I think that today is the day that their luck will finally run out.

Bet 2: Back Barcelona & BTTS @ 7/5 - KO 19:45 GMT

Real Sociedad have a pretty decent record against Barcelona on this ground - just one defeat in nine, five of which were victories. They just aren't the team they once were however and are currently floundering in 13th place.

Eusebio Sacristán's side have lost three of their last five in La LIga and have recorded just one win in seven. They have already been beaten three times at home this term, with two of the losses being 1-3 and 2-3 scorelines.

Barcelona are running away with the title and can extend their lead to nine points with another win this evening. They have won their last four in La Liga and are yet to be defeated this season.

It's worth noting that many of their away victories have been to nil, but despite Sociedad's struggles, they are usually good for a goal in front of their own fans.

Bet 3: Back BTTS in Nantes v PSG @ 1/1 - KO 20:00 GMT

This final selection was very nearly a punt on Nantes +1 Goal at 3/1, but I've opted to play it safe and just go with both teams to score at even money.

The hosts are in fifth place in Ligue One and they've won their last three games in all competitions. The gap to Marseille in fourth is quite a yawning eight points, but they also have a three point cushion over Nice below them.

Nantes have scored at least once in each of their last seven league fixtures and that includes in a 2-1 loss to Nice.

PSG are full of goals - 58 in 19 fixtures this year - but it's just three clean sheets in nine on the road, and two of those came way back in August and September.
