Paul Robinson hit the crossbar yesterday as his 37/1 sixfold Daily Acca was let down by just a single leg, and he's looking for compensation today with a treble. Here are his selections:

- Back Mohamed Salah to score first @ 9/2
- Back SPAL +1 Goal @ 7/5
- Back PSG & BTTS @ 11/10

The Acca pays approximately 27/1

Salah to light up Anfield

Bet 1: Back Mohamed Salah to score first @ 9/2 - KO 16:30 BST

There has been much talk of Mo Salah's form this season and while he is of course nowhere near the level he was at last year, that is only to be expected.

The positive news for Liverpool fans is that he's still getting the chances and he's still putting himself in the right areas to finish them.

Jurgen Klopp's side faced Manchester City four times last season and Salah scored in three of them - opening the scoring in this particular fixture.

The Reds will try and get off to their customary fast start and I'm keen to back the Egyptian to score first against a Manchester City defence that appears shaky at times.

Inter to fail their SPAL test

Bet 2: Back SPAL +1 Goal @ 7/5 - KO 19:30 BST

The hosts come into the game needing a positive result following three straight defeats. Two of those were on the road though against tricky opponents - Fiorentina and Sampdoria - and other than a loss against Sassuolo at the end of September, SPAL, are usually pretty strong at home.

Leonardo Semplici's side won their first two matches of the campaign on this ground - both to nil - and in their first season in Serie A last year, they lost just six of 19 in front of their own fans - three of which were in their opening five appearances.

Opponents, Inter, are back in form, with the catalyst being their late comeback win against Spurs in the Champions League. They have won five on the bounce, but all bar one were by a one goal margin, so it's not like they have been blowing teams away.

They were also in action at PSV on Wednesday evening, which is something that SPAL could take advantage of, as they look to match or improve on last season's 1-1 draw.

More of the same from PSG

Bet 3: Back PSG & BTTS @ 11/10 - KO 20:00 BST

PSG have played eight and won eight in Ligue One this year, scoring 27 goals and conceding six. Just over half of those goals came at home, but it's worth noting that only kept clean sheets against Caen and Saint-Etienne - conceding goals to both Angers and Reims.

The visitors this evening are Lyon and they should prove the strongest test yet at Parc de Princes. They are unbeaten in six in all competitions, and won 3-0 at Dijon on their latest away outing.

Overall I think the reigning champions will get the job done, but Bruno Génésio's men should get on the scoresheet, as they rarely fire blanks on their travels.
