Tuchel's Chelsea play Southampton in the League Cup on Tuesday

Get our football betting experts' best bets for Tuesday's action in the League Cup, Spain's La Liga and Italy's Serie A...

Southampton made life tough for Chelsea when they met at Stamford Bridge at the start of the month, with the hosts needing two late goals to clinch a 3-1 victory. Ralph Hasenhuttl's rotation against Sheffield United in the last round, suggests that they will struggle to do so again...

Spezia v Genoa: Goals in store

The Tuesday football menu begins with an Italian appetiser as two clubs near the bottom of Serie A meet in a match-up that should produce goals...

Chloe Beresford says: "There have been over 2.5 goals scored in Spezia's last six league games, while eight of Genoa's last nine Serie A matches have also seen over 2.5 goals.

"Genoa's opponents scored at least twice in each of those encounters too, so it is no surprise that the Infogol model is giving the visitors just a 33% chance of winning."

Over/Under 2.5? Over

Chloe's bet: Back the 2-1 @ 9.517/2

Chelsea v Southampton: Blues will win again

Chelsea 1.422/5 v Southampton 8.415/2, the Draw 4.67/2

The Blues are in brilliant form and, while Thomas Tuchel will probably rest key players here, the hosts should have too much for Saints.

Dan Fitch says: "Chelsea remain top of the Premier League, having cruised to a 7-0 win over Norwich at the weekend. This was despite being without their two injured strikers Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner.

"Southampton made life tough for Chelsea when they met at Stamford Bridge at the start of the month, with the hosts needing two late goals to clinch a 3-1 victory.

"Ralph Hasenhuttl's rotation against Sheffield United in the last round, suggests that they will struggle to do so again and the hosts are 2.255/4 to win half-time/full-time."

Dan's bet: Back Chelsea to beat Southampton half-time/full-time at 2.255/4

Chelsea v Southampton: Rely on Romeu to deliver again

Andy Schooler has a different angle for the League Cup tie at Stamford Bridge and he recommends his daily bet.

Andy says: "A bet that's been a regular winner down the years has been Oriel Romeu to be carded against Chelsea and punters get another opportunity to back it on Tuesday night.

"The tough-tackling Southampton midfielder has often looked like he's had a point to prove against his former club but too often his aggression has not been controlled well enough.

"Romeu has subsequently been carded in eight of his 14 appearances against the Blues since leaving them in 2015, including in five of his seven matches back at Stamford Bridge."

Andy's bet: Back Oriol Romeu to be shown a card @ 3.211/5

AC Milan v Torino: Leaders to beat Torino again

Serie A leaders AC Milan are 4.77/2 for the Italian title ahead of their Tuesday night match against a team they usually enjoy playing.

Chloe Beresford says: "Despite a lengthy injury list, Milan go into this midweek round sitting level with Napoli at the top of the Serie A table after winning nine of their last 10 league games. They also boast an impressive record against Tuesday's opponents, losing just two of the last 30 meetings with Torino in all competitions.

"The Granata have also failed to score in any of the last four encounters between these two sides, while there have been under 2.5 goals scored in eight of Torino's last 10 away games in Serie A.

"Armed with that knowledge, the tip here is to back Milan to win to nil at odds of 2.757/4."

Chloe's bet: Back Milan to win to nil @ 2.757/4

Arsenal v Leeds: Gunners will extend unbeaten run and make cup quarters

Arsenal are on a good run while opponents Leeds have been struggling, so it should make sense to back Mikel Arteta's men at the Emirates.

Dan Fitch says: "Arsenal are in better form than Leeds and may well field a team that is closer to their strongest XI. Not only do Leeds have injuries, but Bielsa rotated fairly heavily in the last round against Fulham.

"Arsenal are obviously stronger opposition and Bielsa may take this game more seriously. Yet for Leeds, a cup run is perhaps not quite as appealing as it will be for Arsenal, at a time when they are currently near the relegation zone. Arsenal are 2.77/4 to win half-time/full-time, having been ahead at the break in each of their last two games.

"Arteta's team have conceded three goals in those two games. Both teams to score is priced at 1.84/5. Their last three home games have all seen four goals scored. Over 3.5 goals is 3.211/5, while over 2.5 goals looks a safe bet at 1.875/6."

Dan's bet: Back Arsenal to beat Leeds half-time/full-time at 2.77/4

Espanyol v Athletic Bilbao: Hosts to lose unbeaten run

Both of these midtable sides in Spain's La Liga have been in decent form recently but it could be the hosts who come out on top and continue their climb up the table.

Tom Victor says: "Athletic were particularly impressive last time out, with a display against Villarreal which probably warranted a bigger victory, and they can build on that result against an Espanyol side who saw their winning run ended by a Darío Benedetto equaliser for Elche.

"While just three points separate these sides ahead of their meeting on Tuesday, the visitors' 1.00 xGA average has been accompanied by even fewer in the goals against column, and this can help them prevail."

Over/Under 2.5? Under

Tom's bet: Back the 0-2 @ 14.50
