It's all about the Europa League for Paul Robinson tonight, and he's put together a 5/1 Daily Acca that kicks off at 20:00. Here are his selections:

- Back BTTS in Chelsea v Dinamo Kiev @ 13/10
- Back BTTS in Napoli v Salzburg @ 4/5
- Back Valencia @ 2/5

The Acca pays approximately 5/1

Chelsea's defence to be found wanting

Bet 1: Back BTTS in Chelsea in Dynamo Kiev @ 13/10 - KO 20:00 GMT

The Blues are the hot favourites to win tonight and to progress from this tie overall, and while that may well be the case, I quite fancy the Ukranians to get on the scoresheet.

Chelsea's defence is still pretty iffy in my mind and they conceded at Fulham on Sunday. They have kept three clean sheets in a row at Stamford Bridge, but BATE did score here in the group stage, and Kiev scored in all of their away matches in their group. They also have Champions League experience and are used to these kind of European nights.

Salzburg to score in Naples

Bet 2: Back BTTS in Napoli v Salzburg @ 4/5 - KO 20:00 GMT

Another hot favourite to progress through to the next round are Napoli, but again, I have them down as conceding an away goal to Salzburg.

Napoli saw what was left of their Serie A title challenge come to an end against Juventus on Sunday, as they were beaten 2-1 on this ground.

As for the Europa League, they eased past Zurich in the last round, but they are only in this competition because they were knocked out of the Champions League in the group - conceding goals against both PSG and Red Star Belgrade at home.

The visitors sailed through their Europa League group with six straight wins - scoring 17 goals in the process. They thumped Club Brugge 5-2 on aggregate in the last round, and they will be more of a test for Napoli than what some people might think.

Valencia to continue impressive home form

Bet 3: Back Valencia @ 2/5 - KO 20:00 GMT

The selection have a strong record at the Mestalla, and they made it three home wins in a row on Sunday against Athletic Club. They are actually unbeaten in 15 in front of their own fans, in all competitions, and they have kept clean sheets in the five most recent ones.

Their opponents this evening are Krasnodar, a Russian side who finished fourth in their domestic league last season. They are currently second this time around, but come into this game without a win in four in all competitions.

They knocked out Bayer Leverkusen in the last round, but they didn't win either match, and they were also beaten twice in the group. I just can't see them taking anything from their trip to Spain.
