The Daily Acca: Brighton to celebrate their survival with an away goal

Brighton manager - Chris Hughton
Chris Hughton will be delighted to have another season in the Premier League

Sunday's edition of the Daily Acca features action from the Premier League, Serie A and Ligue One. Here are Paul Robinson's selections:

- Back BTTS in Arsenal v Brighton @ 1/1
- Back Napoli to win to nil @ 1/1
- Back Lille +1 Goal @ 13/10

The Acca pays approximately 8/1

Arsenal defence not to be trusted

Bet 1: Back BTTS in Arsenal v Brighton @ 1/1 - KO 16:30 BST

The Gunners are still somehow in the race for the top four despite losing their last three games. They trail Chelsea by two points and Spurs by four, but the latter have played a game more and you wouldn't be 100% confident in them beating Everton on the final day.

The visitors to the Emirates this afternoon are Brighton, who had their Premier League safety confirmed yesterday, without even kicking a ball.

Chris Hughton's men have had a terrible second half to this campaign, but at least the pressure is now off, and they could play with a bit more freedom now.

Unai Emery's side were in action in the Europa League on Thursday, and will be again this coming week. Their defence are prone to errors, and I definitely fancy the Seagulls to score in this one. An Arsenal goal should be a given too.

Napoli to get back on track

Bet 2: Back Napoli to win to nil @ 1/1 - KO 19:30 BST

Napoli's form has tailed right off over the last few weeks, but they did bounce back with a 2-0 victory over Frosinone last weekend. They still have four matches to play, including this one, so they will now be aiming to finish off with a few more victories.

Opponents, Cagliari, are in mid-table with no chance of being relegated. Things were looking dodgy at one stage, but six wins from their last 11 outings lifted them away from danger.

My concern for them here however is that they are away from home, and they have lost seven of their last nine on their travels - with six of the defeats being to nil. They were beaten 3-0 at Roma last weekend, and I can see something similar today.

Don't underestimate Lille

Bet 3: Back Lille +1 Goal @ 13/10 - KO 20:00 BST

We finish in France for a fixture between Lyon who are third and Lille who are second.

The visitors have enjoyed a fine campaign, and with a six point advantage over Lyon, even if they lose this game, they are still highly likely to finish as runners-up to PSG.

The hosts meanwhile are only three points clear of Saint-Etienne in fourth, and with only the top three qualifying for the Champions League, they are the ones who have the extra motivation to win this match.

All of that is factored into the price though, and I can't believe that Lille are odds-against to avoid defeat. They are currently 10 unbeaten on their travels - seven of which were victories.
