The Daily Acca: Inter to pull away from the chasing pack

Inter Milan manager - Luciano Spalletti
Luciano Spalletti's position was strengthened by the Derby di Milano victory

Sunday's edition of the Daily Acca sees Paul Robinson look at fixtures in France, Italy and Argentina, and the treble is a shade over 21/1. Here are his selections:

- Back Lille @ 8/5
- Back Inter & BTTS @ 4/1
- Back Over 2.5 Goals in Tigre v Racing Club @ 8/11

The Acca pays approximately 21/1

Lille's fine away record to continue

Bet 1: Back Lille @ 8/5 - KO 16:00 BST

After finishing in 17th place last season, Lille are the surprise package of French football this year as they are in second place, one point clear of third, with a game in hand.

Christophe Galtier's side need to bounce back from a last minute defeat at home to Monaco last time out, but they are on a fine run away from the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.

The visitors are unbeaten in seven on their travels - six of which were wins. They kept three clean sheets during that period, and it includes victories over Montpellier (seventh), Marseille (fourth) and Saint-Etienne (fifth).

Their opponents today are Nantes, a team who are in 15th place. They have only been beaten four times on their own patch this season, but two of those came from their four most recent outings at home, and at 8/5 about the visitors feels like value.

Inter to outgun Lazio

Bet 2: Inter & BTTS @ 4/1 - KO 19:30 BST

Inter Milan not only scored city bragging rights when they beat AC a fortnight ago, they also move above them into third place in Serie A.

That win was their second consecutive victory, and they appear to be back in form, following a brief wobble that saw them lost at Cagliari at the beginning of March.

Lazio are the visitors to the San Siro this evening and they are in sixth place, buoyed by a 4-1 thrashing of Parma last time out.

It's the away record of Simone Inzaghi's men that concerns me though, as it's just two wins from their last eight away from Stadio Olimpico, and they lost at Atalanta, Napoli and Genoa.

Scoring goals hasn't been an issue for them, but conceding them has, and with the hosts having netted 11 times across their last five in the league, I fear for the Lazio defence.

Goals aplenty with Tigre involved

Bet 3: Back Over 2.5 Goals in Tigre v Racing Club @ 8/11 - KO 22:10 BST

A rare Sunday night trip to Argentina now as I am chasing the value in Tigre matches having three goals or more.

Mariano Echeverría's side have played 23 times this season - scoring 35 and conceding 39. Those kind of stats are almost unheard of in this league, so it comes as no surprise that their matches average the highest amount of goals per game at the 3.22 mark - 0.52 higher than the second.

A total of 16 of their 23 have seen this selection land, and that includes their last six at home, where the scorelines have been 2-1, 1-3, 2-2, 4-4, 2-1 and 2-2.

Racing Club top the division, and with a four point gap to Defensa y Justicia in second, a victory here would seal the title. They actually have to play their rivals in the last game of the season next week, so they will want to go for the victory tonight and get it wrapped up.

As far as the goals go, they have scored three times themselves in four of their last six on the road, and five of their last seven away from home have seen over 2.5 backers collect.
