Paul Robinson has included two European heavyweights in the shape of Juventus and Barcelona in Sunday's edition of the Daily Acca, but it all begins with Manchester United's trip to St James' Park. Here are his selections:

- Back Under 2.5 Goals in Newcastle v Man United @ 7/10
- Back Juventus @ 15/8
- Back Barcelona & BTTS @ 13/8

The Acca pays approximately 12/1

Memories of Philippe Albert's chip are long gone

Bet 1: Back Under 2.5 Goals in Newcastle v Man United @ 7/10 - KO 16:30 BST

Newcastle v Manchester United used to be a highly anticipated fixture, but that certainly isn't the case now.

Both teams are struggling for form, and their main issue is putting the ball in the net. Steve Bruce's side have scored just one home goal in three outings at St James' Park this season, with all three games seeing this selection land.

United didn't even register a shot on target in their Europa League match at AZ on Thursday, and they have just two away goals in the Premier League this year - all four of their games away from Old Trafford have seen Under 2.5 backers collect.

Sarri to get the better of the ex Chelsea managers

Bet 2: Back Juventus @ 15/8 - KO 19:45 BST

The top two in Italy meet at the San Siro this evening and the visitors are overpriced at 15/8 to take the three points.

Inter have made the perfect start to their domestic campaign as they have played six and won six. There have been chinks in their armour though as in the Champions League, Slavia Prague held Antonio Conte's men to a draw on this ground, and they were beaten by Barca on Wednesday.

Juventus played on Tuesday, in a much easier game at home. That's 24 hours extra rest, with no travelling. Their only blip in the league this season was a 0-0 draw at Fiorentina, and Sarri-ball seems to be working for the Old Lady.

Barcelona's quest for a clean sheet to go on

Bet 3: Back Barcelona & BTTS @ 13/8 - KO 20:00 BST

Barcelona are a short price to beat Sevilla tonight, but if you throw in a Sevilla goal on top, they become a much more attractive proposition.

Ernesto Valverde's side have won all four of their home matches in all competitions this season, but they are yet to keep a clean sheet. Real Betis, Valencia, Villarreal and Inter have all found the net here, but Barca have racked up 14 goals of their own.

The visitors are sixth in the league, having won four of their seven fixtures to date. Including the Europa League, they have played five away games this term, and they are yet to fail to score - winning four and losing one.
