The Daily Acca: Milan Derby to go to the red and blacks

AC Milan score a goal
AC Milan have been revitalised since the turn of the year

Sunday's edition of the Daily Acca sees Paul Robinson take in three big fixtures from the Premier League, Ligue One and Serie A. Here are his selections:

- Back Man City @ 8/13
- Back BTTS in Montpellier v Lyon @ 4/5
- Back AC Milan @ 7/5

The Acca pays approximately 6/1

More misery for Conte

Bet 1: Back Man City @ 8/13 - KO 16:00 GMT

It's been a fantastic season for Man City to date and while a clash between two of the top teams in the country is often a tight affair, I can't see Chelsea causing the Citizens too many problems.

After drawing their opening game of the season at the Etihad this season, City have gone on to win every single game since. They haven't just been scraping victories either, they have been blowing their opponents away.

Chelsea were beaten at Old Trafford last weekend and they have now lost their last three away from Stamford Bridge in all competitions. They do have plenty of star power, but they just aren't firing under Antonio Conte this year.

French duo to give us goals

Bet 2: Back BTTS in Montpellier v Lyon @ 4/5 - KO 16:00 GMT

There should be goals at both ends when Montpellier take on Lyon today as the hosts have seen this selection land in eight of their last nine on this ground.

Lyon have also had plenty of goals in their fixtures of late as nine of their last 11 on their travels have ended with both teams scoring, and although they kept a clean sheet at Villarreal recently, I find it hard to imagine them doing the same here.

Montpellier are only one place behind Lyon but with the gap standing at 11 points, they have to go for the win this afternoon and that should lead to an open, attacking match.

AC to edge the Milan Derby

Bet 3: Back AC Milan @ 7/5 - KO 19:45 GMT

We conclude with the Milan Derby and as it's AC who are in much the better form, I fully expect them to take the three points this evening.

Gennaro Gattuso is getting a real tune out of the Rossoneri and they come into this fixture on the back of five consecutive victories. They haven't been beaten since before Christmas and they have kept five clean sheets in a row.

Inter on the other hand are dropping like a stone, however it should be noted that they have now won two of their las three. They both came with home advantage though and were against Bologna who are 12th and Benevento who are miles adrift at the bottom.
