Paul Robinson has put together a 14/1 treble for Sunday's edition of the Daily Acca that features three mouth-watering clashes, including the Rome Derby. Here are his selections:

- Back Lazio @ 31/20
- Back Under 2.5 Goals in Malaga v Real Madrid @ 13/8
- Back PSG and BTTS @ 13/10

The Acca pays approximately 14/1

Lazio to take the Derby della Capitale

Bet 1: Back Lazio @ 31/20 - KO 19:45 BST

There were contrasting fortunes in Europe for these two rivals in midweek as Roma produced the shock of all shocks to overturn a 4-1 first leg deficit against Barcelona, while Lazio blew a 4-2 lead over Salzburg to exit the Europa League.

There is nothing between them when it comes to domestic action though as they are both locked together on 60 points, as they occupy third and fourth in Serie A. Finishing third has it's advantages, but the key thing is to finish top four and neither side can afford to coast given that Inter have the same amount of points as them - albeit having played a game more.

Simone Inzaghi's men had won three on the bounce prior to their defeat in Austria on Thursday and now that they only have Serie A to concentrate on, I genuinely believe that they will be the more focused of the two for this match.

Roma have a Champions League tie against Liverpool to think about and although the first leg isn't for another nine days, they could be on a comedown from Tuesday's exploits.

Overall I just feel that Lazio are the value price - especially as they will have their fans inside Stadio Olimpico.

A note of caution for goal backers at Malaga

Bet 2: Under 2.5 Goals in Malaga v Real Madrid @ 13/8 - KO 19:45 BST

For those expecting a whole host of goals at Malaga this evening, I would advise you to look at their home scorelines this season.

José González's side might well be adrift of safety at the bottom of La Liga, but they haven't been getting thrashed out of sight - especially on this ground.

At La Rosaleda, eight of their last nine in the league have seen this selection land, and that includes 1-0 defeats to both Atletico Madrid and Sevilla, as well as a 2-0 loss to Barcelona.

A total of half a dozen teams have conceded more goals than them this term, and at home it's 21 against in 15 appearances. Now obviously the stats for Real Madrid are going to suggest otherwise when it comes to Under 2.5 Goals, but Zidane won't be happy with how they defended in midweek, and will surely be asking for an improvement.

PSG to clinch the Ligue One title

Bet 3: Back PSG and BTTS @ 13/10 - KO 20:00 BST

The top two meet each other at Parc des Princes tonight and victory for PSG will see them secure the Ligue One title with five matches to spare.

I fully expect Unai Emery's side to achieve it - they have a 100% home record this season and have won all three of their meetings with Monaco this term as well.

The outright win price is a little cramped though, but 13/10 for them to win and concede is definitely something that interests me.

The visitors scored in two of those three defeats to PSG this year and they have racked up 11 goals over the course of their four latest away matches. They won't want to go down with a whimper, and I can't see them playing for a draw when Lyon are within striking distance in third.
