The Daily Acca: It's a goals thing

Newcastle United manager - Steve Bruce
Steve Bruce is yet to win over the Newcastle faithful

Paul Robinson kicks off the King Power this afternoon, before finishing in France, and his Daily Acca weighs in at the 11/2 mark. Here are his selections:

- Back BTTS in Leicester v Newcastle @ 23/20
- Back BTTS in AC Milan v Fiorentina @ 4/5
- Back Under 2.5 Goals in Marseille v Rennes @ 8/11

The Acca pays approximately 11/2

Steve Bruce's side to grab another away goal

Bet 1: Back BTTS in Leicester v Newcastle @ 23/20 - KO 16:30 BST

The Foxes are fairly heavy favourites to take the three points from this game, and while they might well do that, a Magpies goal looks like a distinct possibility.

Steve Bruce's side have only played twice away from St James' Park so far this season, but you could argue that they were their two best performances.

A 1-0 win at Spurs was their first and only win of the campaign, and they were in the game for a long while at Anfield, before eventually losing 3-1.

Leicester drew their opening home match of the season with Wolves, but since then it's been two victories. They beat Bournemouth and Tottenham, but they didn't keep a clean sheet in either.

Don't expect a clean sheet in Italy

Bet 2: Back BTTS in AC Milan v Fiorentina @ 4/5 - KO 19:45 BST

AC Milan fell to their second successive Serie A defeat at Torino on Thursday, a result which was especially annoying for me as a draw would have landed me a 9/1 Daily Acca win.

Marco Giampaolo's side led 1-0 in that game, but they conceded two in the space of four minutes towards the end, which compounded them to their third defeat of the season.

Fiorentina are on an upward curve, as after having lost their opening two outings, they drew their next two and then beat Sampdoria during the week.

Vincenzo Montella's side have had a tough run of fixtures though, so their points tally isn't too bad considering. They will certainly fancy their chances of getting a result at the San Siro this evening, and this selection has landed in both of their away games to date.

Goals at a premium in the south of France

Bet 3: Back Under 2.5 Goals in Marseille v Rennes @ 8/11 - KO 20:00 BST

It's seventh versus ninth in Ligue One tonight, and I can't see many goals when Marseille host Rennes, at Stade Vélodrome.

The hosts have played five times so far this season, and three of them have all ended with two goals or fewer. The two that had more were away matches, and in their outings in front of their own fans, the scorelines have been 0-2, 1-0 and 1-1.

The visitors have also been on a low-scoring run, as other than a 1-2 reverse at home to Nice, four weeks ago, their other four fixtures have seen Under 2.5 backers collect.

Under 1.5 backers would have collected in two of their three away from home, and their sole Europa League match also had just two goals in it.
