The Daily Acca: Burnley to go out with a whimper

Burnley manager - Sean Dyche
Sean Dyche has had plenty to ponder already this season

It's two from the Europa League and one from the Copa Libertadores for Paul Robinson and followers of the Daily Acca today and the treble pays around the 14/1 mark. Here are his selections:

- Back Molde @ 11/5
- Back Olympiakos @ 21/10
- Back Under 2.5 Goals in Libertad v Boca Juniors @ 8/15

The Acca pays approximately 14/1

Zenit to suffer in Norway

Bet 1: Back Molde @ 11/5 - KO 18:00 BST

The Norwegians lost the first leg by a 3-1 scoreline in St Petersburg but they will take hope from the fact that not only do they have an away goal, but that in the previous round, Zenit were beaten 4-0 at Dinamo Minsk, before mounting a second leg comeback.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær's side are in a poor run of form at present - it's now three defeats on the bounce - but they have still been scoring goals, which is a positive. They also beat Hibernian 3-0 at home in the previous round.

The visitors are a familiar name in European football but they aren't quite the force they were a couple of years ago and there is every chance that they will be turned over this evening.

Burnley's European dream to come to a sad end

Bet 2: Back Olympiakos @ 21/10 - KO 19:45 BST

Sean Dyche did a fantastic job to get Burnley into Europe, but it looks like they are going to fall at the final hurdle before the group stage. You can't really point fingers at the manager - or the players for that matter - the fact is that the board didn't really invest over the summer, and they are beginning to pay the price this year.

The Clarets have already made a poor start to their Premier League campaign and after scraping through earlier rounds of this competition, they were beaten 3-1 in Greece last week, and I can see them getting beaten again here.

Their once solid defence have now conceded 10 goals in three games, and while the Greeks don't actually need to win this evening, they are in great form have won all four of their competitive matches this term.

Boca Juniors to protect their lead

Bet 3: Back Under 2.5 Goals in Libertad v Boca Juniors @ 8/15 - KO 23:30 BST

We finish in the Copa Libertadores for a last 16 tie between Libertad and Boca Juniors, that will hopefully finish with two goals or fewer being scored.

The Argentine giants won the first leg 2-0 at La Bombonera and they won't be taking any chances in Paraguay. Guillermo Barros Schelotto's side drew 0-0 at Huracan in the league when they were last in action and a similar kind of result is highly likely here.

Away from home in this competition they have seen all three of their away games go under 2.5 this year, and their opponents here could only draw 0-0 with Atletico Tucuman - an inferior Argentinian side - in the previous round.
