Paul Robinson has been on fire this week with back to back Daily Acca wins on Tuesday and Wednesday. Can he make it a hat-trick? Here are his selections:

- Back Penarol to win to nil @ 8/15
- Back The Draw in Millonarios v Independiente @ 2/1
- Back Corinthians @ 4/5

The Acca pays approximately 7/1

The Strongest to prove the weakest at Penarol

Bet 1: Back Penarol to win to nil @ 8/15 - KO 23:15 BST

The hosts come into the match aiming to take the win and trying to draw level on points with Atletico Tucuman in second. For that to happen, they would also need the Argentinian club to lose at Libertad - a strong possibility - and that would mean that Penarol would progress to the next round.

Leonardo Ramos' side not only have the luxury of home advantage tonight, they are also taking on the team who are bottom of the group. The Strongest have lost four of their five outings to date, and their two away results have been 3-0 defeats.

The Uruguayans may well be a short price to win to nil, but they have a 100% record at home and should get the job done.


Argentinians to take a valuable point form their trip to Colombia

Bet 2: Back The Draw in Millonarios v Independiente @ 2/1 - KO 01:30 BST (Fri)

To Group 7 of the Copa Libertadores now as I strongly fancy the draw between Millonarios of Colombia and Independiente of Argentina.

This is a tight group as we head into the penultimate gameweek for them as Corinthians at the top have seven and Millonarios at the bottom have four.

Independiente are in second with six and they would most definitely take a point prior to kick off as their final fixture is against Deportivo Lara at home. They pulled off a shock 2-1 win at Corinthians last time to put themselves in this position and I don't expect them to blow it now.

The Colombians have to go to Brazil in their final match so the onus is definitely on them to go for the win tonight. I just can't see it though and we could see similar to their opening home group game - a 0-0 with Corinthians.


Brazilian champs to book their place in the knockout stage

Bet 3: Back Corinthians @ 4/5 - KO 01:30 BST (Fri)

It's Corinthians who are our third and final selection tonight as I fancy them to get the victory that they need to secure their place in the last 16.

Fábio Carille's side won't fear a trip to Venezuela, and they won the reverse fixture 2-0. Their only slip up was the aforementioned 2-1 defeat to Independiente last time, but prior to that it had been seven points from a possible nine - all without conceding a goal.

The hosts simply aren't in their class and even though they have home advantage, I can't see it making enough of a difference.
