There's a big night of football across Europe and England this evening and Paul Robinson has picked out a near 11/1 treble.

- Back Juventus +1 Goal @ 7/5
- Back Celtic +2 Goals @ 13/10
- Back Sheffield Wednesday @ 11/10

The Acca pays approximately 11/1

Bet 1: Back Juventus +1 Goal @ 7/5 - KO 19:45 BST

We begin in the Champions League for Juventus' trip to the Nou Camp. Considering they were the runners-up last season and the fact that Barcelona aren't exactly the power they once were at the moment, a price of 7/5 for Juventus to win with a one goal headstart surely has to be a bit of value.

What this bet means is that Juve have to not lose. A draw or win for them and we win too. Given that this is their toughest group fixture, it is highly likely that Massimiliano Allegri will adopt a defensive approach.

A further positive is that the side from Turin have been scoring goals for fun in Serie A this term - racking up 10 in three games, so they have it in them to get a goal or two if they do fall behind.

Barcelona have also made a decent start to their La Liga campaign, winning all three of their outings to an aggregate score of 9-0. They have enjoyed a kind run of fixtures though and they still have plenty to prove against the top teams in Europe.

Bet 2: Back Celtic +2 Goals @ 13/10 - KO 19:45 BST

Another handicap bet from the Champions League now as PSG travel to one of the most daunting grounds in Europe - Celtic Park. I am not suggesting that the Scots will pull off a miraculous victory, but they seem overpriced at 13/10 with a two goal headstart.

Brendan Rodgers' men are prone to raising their game against top opponents and that was the case in this competition last season when they held Man City to a 3-3 draw here. That isn't the only impressive result in the club's recent Champions League history, as they have pulled off a fair few shocks during the course of the last five or six years.

PSG will be hoping to go all the way in this competition this season but the jury is still out at this stage. The addition of Neymar and Mbappe to play alongside Cavani is obviously a statement of intent, but the rest of the team need to hold up their end of the bargain.

This should be closer than the odds suggest, so don't expect a huge PSG win.

Bet 3: Back Sheffield Wednesday @ 11/10 - KO 19:45 BST

To the Championship now as I am quite surprised that Sheffield Wednesday are odds-against to win at home against Brentford.

The Bees are second from bottom of the division having lost three of their six games to date - drawing the other three. They did put in an improved performance at Villa Park on Saturday, but they still didn't win, and Villa really were pretty dire.

The Owls on the other hand beat Nottingham Forest 3-1 on this ground and they have only been beaten once this term. Carlos Carvalhal's side are usually pretty strong at Hillsborough and they will be out for revenge having lost this fixture 2-1 last year.
