The Daily Acca: Goals galore between Sociedad and Sevilla

Sevilla could do with putting a string of victories together
Sevilla could do with putting a string of victories together

It's two from Spain and one from France for Paul Robinson and followers of the Daily Acca today. Here are his selections:

- Back Getafe @ 3/4
- Back Lille @ 13/8
- Back Over 3.5 Goals in Sociedad v Sevilla @ 6/4

The Acca pays approximately 10/1

Bet 1: Back Getafe @ 3/4 - KO 18:30 GMT

The hosts are in 11th in La Liga having collected 20 points from their opening 16 fixtures. They have only won five times, but four of those were at home and tonight they face a Las Palmas side who are bottom of the table.

The visitors have played eight times on the road this term and they've been beaten on six occasions. On their latest away trip they lost 2-0 at fellow strugglers, Alaves, and I don't hold out much hope for them today.

Getafe need to bounce back from a 1-0 loss at Girona last time out, but prior to that they had taken four points from a possible six on this ground - including a 1-0 win over Valencia.

Bet 2: Back Lille @ 13/8 - KO 19:50 GMT

Over to France now for a Ligue One fixture between Lille and Nice. The visitors have been in excellent form following a slow start to the campaign, but their main man, Mario Balotelli is suspended this evening and that's my angle here.

Super Mario has netted 10 of their 23 goals this year and he had scored eight in his last eight appearances in all competitions. Without his services, I find it difficult seeing them get on the scoresheet at Lille.

Despite the hosts being third from bottom of the league, they have still won three times at home this season - two of which came from their last two attempts.

Bet 3: Back Over 3.5 Goals in Sociedad v Sevilla @ 6/4 - KO 20:30 GMT

We conclude back in Spain for what will hopefully be a goal-fest between Real Sociedad and Sevilla.

Both of these clubs are slightly lower in the table than they would have hoped to be and they really could do with a victory. That should hopefully lead to an open, attacking affair, and the goal-stats are also in our favour.

Sociedad's matches are averaging dead on 3.5 goals each time this term, with seven of their 16 seeing this selection land - including three of their last six in all competitions.

Sevilla's games are averaging 2.38 goals per 90 minutes and while only three of their outings have had four goals or more, they have had four of their last seven in all competitions go over 3.5.
