There are two big Champions League fixtures tonight as well as some Championship action, and Paul Robinson has put together a 14/1 treble. Here are his selections:

- Back West Brom @ 6/5
- Back Liverpool @ 6/5
- Back Barcelona & BTTS @ 2/1

The Acca pays approximately 14/1

Another bad day at the office for Steve McClaren

Bet 1: Back West Brom @ 6/5 - KO 19:45 GMT

The Baggies picked up a really good three points at Villa Park on Saturday to make it seven wins from their last eight away games in the Championship.

Darren Moore's side have won more matches on the road than they have at the Hawthorns this term, and no other club in the division can boast as many away victories.

Tonight they travel to Loftus Road to take on a QPR side who have lost five on the bounce in the league and gone seven without a win.

Their only recent success came against League One's Portsmouth in the FA Cup - a competition which they were knocked out of by Watford on Friday.

Back the Reds at an insulting price

Bet 2: Back Liverpool @ 6/5 - KO 20:00 GMT

Liverpool at odds-against feels like a big price this evening as I don't think that Bayern Munich are quite as good as they were three or four years ago.

This is a Liverpool a side who have beaten both Napoli and PSG at Anfield this term, as well as blowing away Roma and Manchester City in this competition last season.

Bayern meanwhile are only second in the Bundesliga and they failed to beat Ajax in both fixtures in the group stage. They did do the double over both Benfica and AEK Athens, but that form doesn't read too great at this level, and if Jurgen Klopp's men are anywhere near their best, it could be a long night for the Germans.

Kevin Hatchard is also predicting a good night for the home team.

Barca to strut their stuff in France

Bet 3: Back Barcelona & BTTS @ 2/1 - KO 20:00 GMT

The other Champions League fixture today is Lyon versus Barcelona, and while I expect Barca to take a lead back to the Nou Camp, I very much doubt that they will be able to stop the hosts from scoring.

Lyon were actually unbeaten in the group stage as after winning their opener at the Etihad in September, they went on to draw their next five matches - all with both teams scoring.

It will be interesting to see how Bruno Génésio's side cope with their first knockout stage match since 2012, but they did at least warm up well for it with a 2-1 win over Guingamp on Friday.

This is Barcelona though and they are still the most formidable team in the world. They beat both Spurs and PSV away from home in the group stage - neither of which were to nil though - and they will likely have too much firepower for a Lyon defence that have conceded over twice as many goals as PSG have in Ligue One this term.
