Paul Robinson has picked out an 8/1 Daily Acca for tonight and it starts with a goal-fest in Rome. Here are his selections:

- Back BTTS in Lazio v Empoli @ 8/11
- Back The Draw in Betis v Valencia @ 11/5
- Back Lyon @ 8/13

The Acca pays approximately 8/1

A home clean sheet to continue to elude Lazio

Bet 1: Back BTTS in Lazio v Empoli @ 8/11 - KO 19:30 GMT

Lazio are seventh in Serie A, but only one point covers fourth to seventh, so they are still in the mix for a Champions League place. They put back to back league defeats behind them last time with a 1-0 success at Frosinone, and they should really be winning this game tonight.

Empoli are in 17th place, but they have drawn two of their last three. Scoring goals hasn't been an issue for them this season - they have outscored the rest of the bottom seven by at least eight goals. A total of 44 against has really hindered them though, but what it has meant is that this selection has landed in five of their last six away from home.

The same can be said for Lazio's last six at Stadio Olimpico, so even though the hosts should pick up the win tonight, I can't see them doing it to nil.

Copa del Rey semi to remain all square

Bet 2: Back The Draw in Betis v Valencia @ 11/5 - KO 20:00 GMT

Into the Copa del Rey now for the first leg of the semi-final between Real Betis and Valencia.

These two sides appear to be pretty evenly matched on paper, and the draw looks like a strong possibility in what could be quite a cagey first leg in Seville.

The duo are sixth and eighth in La Liga, with just two points the difference. They are both in decent form, but the visitors have won just one of their last eight away from home.

The hosts meanwhile have lost just one of their last dozen on this ground - and that was against Real Madrid. However, this could be quite a tight game, with the prospect of a cup final on the horizon.

It is also worth noting that the most recent meeting between the two finished 0-0.

Lyon to power to Coupe de France win

Bet 3: Back Lyon @ 8/13 - KO 20:00 GMT

Our final selection comes from France for a cup game that Lyon should win at Guingamp.

Guingamp are bottom of Ligue One and have lost three of their last five at home. They last played Lyon here in November 2018, where they were beaten 4-2. They also lost the previous meeting, which was also a home game for them - 2-0 in January of the same year.

The visitors come into the match on the back of four straight victories in all competitions - including a 2-1 success over PSG at the weekend.

They are flying on the crest of a wave at present, and I don't expect them to make any mistakes this evening.
