The Daily Acca: Chelsea to make it three Champions League wins

Chelsea manager - Frank Lampard
Frank Lampard has exceeded expectations at Chelsea so far

Paul Robinson had two out of three for the third successive day yesterday, and he's aiming for compensation in the Champions League and League One. Here are his selections:

- Back Ipswich @ 9/10
- Back Under 2.5 Goals in Dortmund v Inter @ 19/20
- Back Chelsea @ 4/5

The Acca pays approximately 11/2

Ipswich to move to the top

Bet 1: Back Ipswich @ 9/10 - KO 19:45 BST

The Tractor Boys put their first two League One defeats of the season behind them at the weekend, by winning 3-1 at Southend, and while they face a tougher task this evening, they are back on the right path.

Paul Lambert's side are second in the table, three points behind Wycombe at the top, but they have two games in hand. This is one of them, and they have won six of their eight away fixtures this season.

Rochdale had moved up the table following a run of three straight victories, but they have now lost their last two, and are down to 14th. The latest defeat came on this ground against Bristol Rovers, and it was their third loss in front of their own fans this year.

Don't be seduced by goals

Bet 2: Back Under 2.5 Goals in Dortmund v Inter @ 19/20 - KO 20:00 BST

Borussia Dortmund and Inter have been involved in plenty of high-scoring affairs this season, but most of those have been in their domestic fixtures.

In the Champions League, the Germans have played three, and all three have seen this selection land. Their only home match finished 0-0, and that was against Barcelona.

The Italians have seen two of their three end with two goals or fewer, and the one that did was a 2-1 defeat at the Nou Camp.

Given the situation of Group F, neither team can afford to lose this match, so I expect quite a tight affair, with not many risks taken early on.

Chelsea to do the double over Ajax

Bet 3: Back Chelsea @ 4/5 - KO 20:00 BST

The Blues have won plenty of plaudits lately and they have been well deserved. Frank Lampard not only has his players playing some good football, they are also now getting the results as well.

After losing their opening Group H match to Valencia, they have gone on to win in Lille and Ajax. They face the Dutch club again tonight, and they have an added advantage that the away fans are banned from the stadium.

Erik ten Hag's visitors are in good form in the Eredivisie, but as mentioned earlier, they were beaten by Chelsea in Amsterdam a fortnight ago, and nothing has changed to make me think that they can turn it around in London.
