The Daily Acca: Double Dutch with a hint of Brazil

Utrecht manager - Dick Advocaat
Dick Advocaat is hoping to lead Utrecht into Europe

Tuesday's Daily Acca features two evening kick offs from the Dutch top flight before a late night fixture from Brazil's Serie B. Here are his selections:

- Back Utrecht & BTTS @ 15/8
- Back Vitesse @ 8/11
- Back Under 1.5 Goals in Criciuma v Guarani @ 6/4

The Acca pays approximately 11/1

Utrecht to make home advantage pay

Bet 1: Back Utrecht & BTTS @ 15/8 - KO 17:30 BST

This is a Europa League play-off semi-final, with Utrecht holding all the aces as they won the first leg 2-0 away at Heracles.

The hosts finished one place above their opponents during the regular campaign, but the points difference was five, and they finished the season in much the better form.

Dick Advocaat's side are currently unbeaten in six in front of their own fans, however it is worth noting that only three of them were victories - all of which saw their opponent score.

Heracles, meanwhile, have lost their last three away from home, but they did find the net in each of them - something that they have achieved in their last six on the road.

Vitesse to prove too strong in their own stadium

Bet 2: Back Vitesse @ 8/11 - KO 19:45 BST

The other Dutch Europa League play-off semi tonight is Vitesse against Groningen, and I fancy the home team to overturn their first leg 2-1 deficit.

Leonid Slutsky's men finished the regular campaign in fifth place - three places and eight points better off than Groningen.

They were only beaten at home once all season in the league, and that came against Ajax. They won 10 of their 17 overall, including a 5-1 victory over their opponent here.

The visitors are six without a win on their travels - failing to score on four occasions. They will of course set up to defend and protect their lead this evening, but I can't see them holding out against a free-scoring, Vitesse.

Defence to outshine attack in Brazil

Bet 3: Back Under 1.5 Goals in Criciuma v Guarani @ 6/4 - KO 23:15 BST

We finish in South America for a second tier Brazilian fixture that will hopefully be a low-scoring affair.

Criciuma have played four times so far this season and they are yet to record a victory. They have drawn two and lost two, and scored just two goals. Of note, both home matches saw this selection land.

Guarani drew 0-0 at Parana last time out, which was their second goalless draw of the season. Their other two outings saw them lose 2-0 at Oeste and win 3-2 at home to Vitoria, and their matches last term averaged only slightly above two goals per game.
