There are three international friendlies for Paul Robinson to sink his teeth into this evening and he's picked out a 5/1 treble. Here are his selections:

- Back Senegal @ 4/9
- Back Morocco @ 29/20
- Back BTTS in Slovakia v Netherlands @ 8/11

The Acca pays approximately 5/1

Minnows to be overrun by Senegal

Bet 1: Back Senegal @ 4/9 - KO 19:00 BST

Luxembourg are a better team than they once were and in their qualifying group for the World Cup they took four points off Belarus and even managed draws with Bulgaria and France.

Tonight they take on Russia-bound, Senegal, though and I strongly fancy them to get the win. The Africans have only lost one match inside of 90 minutes since a 2-0 defeat against Mexico in February 2016.

They sailed through their qualifying group for the World Cup - taking 14 points from a possible 16 in the final round, and they have plenty of Premier League or former Premier League players in their squad.

Africans to get the better of Ukraine

Bet 2: Back Morocco @ 29/20 - KO 19:00 BST

Our second selection sees us once again favour a team that are going to Russia against one who isn't.

Morocco topped their group in the final round of qualification, and one of their opponents was the Ivory Coast. They are on a long unbeaten run - last defeat was in June 2017 - and they come into the game on the back of five straight wins.

The Ukraine aren't a bad side, but they could only finish third behind Iceland and Croatia in their qualifying group and that was largely down to two defeats from their final three fixtures.

Two of their three friendlies since have resulted in wins, but I believe that they will be edged out by their African opponents in Geneva this evening.

Expect plenty of goals at City Arena Trnava

Bet 3: Back BTTS in Slovakia v Netherlands @ 8/11 - KO 19:45 BST

The Ronald Koeman era of the Dutch national side heads into its third match tonight and while I'm not sure what the outcome will be, I have to think that there will be goals at both ends.

Neither of these two teams will be heading to the World Cup following disappointing qualifying campaigns that didn't see them even make the play-offs.

Slovakia were a bit unlucky in that respect as they finished as runners-up to England, but the other eight second placed teams had more points.

Holland netted three times at Portugal last time out and prior to a blank against England, they put three past Romania also. Slovakia also scored three goals when last in action and this should be quite an attacking affair.
