It's that time of the week where Paul Robinson selects a home win, an away win, a match to go over 2.5 goals and a match to go under 2.5 goals. Here are his selections...

"Back Sassuolo @ 2.45 (29/20)

Back Barcelona @ 1.8 (4/5)

Back Over 2.5 Goals in Liverpool v Exeter @ 1.5 (1/2)

Back Under 2.5 Goals in Lazio v Juventus @ 1.57 (4/7)

The Multiple pays approximately 10.38 (9/1)"

Bet 1: Sassuolo (HOME) @ 2.45 (29/20)

We begin in Italy as Sassuolo look overpriced for the visit of Torino to Città del Tricolore.

The hosts suffered their first Serie A defeat in five outings at the weekend as they went down 3-1 at leaders, Napoli. That can easily be forgiven though and they did actually take the lead in that match.

They are yet to lose in front of their own fans this term - winning four and drawing four - and last year they ended the campaign with four wins, two draws and just one defeat from their final seven outings on this ground.

Torino got back to winning ways on Saturday as they beat strugglers, Frosinone 4-2 but that was at home and this evening they are on the road.

Their away record doesn't make great reading either as it's five defeats from six and while they did face some tricky tasks during that period, they were also beaten 2-1 by Carpi - a team who are currently 18th.

Bet 2: Barcelona (AWAY) @ 1.8 (4/5)

Copa del Rey action now as Barcelona travel to Athletic Club for the first of their two legged quarter final tie.

These two met at the Nou Camp at the weekend and Barca ran out 6-0 winners, although their task was made easier when Bilbao were reduced to 10 men inside four minutes.

I find it hard to see the hosts being able to improve that much to avoid defeat again this evening, despite their excellent record at home. We know that Luis Enrqiue's men will take this competition seriously and even if they don't quite field their strongest XI, it won't be far off.

When Barcelona last came to visit Bilbao they won 1-0 and when they visited here in this competition last year, they won 3-1. Expect more of the same tonight.

Bet 3: Liverpool v Exeter (Over 2.5 goals) @ 1.5 (1/2)

A late Brad Smith goal spared Liverpool's blushes at Exeter a couple of weeks ago and while I expect The Reds to stamp their authority this time, I expect a similar number of goals in the match.

Jurgen Klopp won't field as weak as an XI as he did at St James Park in the original fixture but it certainly won't be full strength. Whichever players he puts at the back, the defence always looks shaky though and that isn't helped by having two goalkeepers who have been making regular howlers recently.

The attacking players will be hungry for goals to force their way into the team for the trip to Carrow Road on Saturday and Paul Tisdale's men certainly won't show any fear after having the best of the 2-2 draw a week last Friday.

Bet 4: Lazio v Juventus (Under 2.5 goals) @ 1.57 (4/7)

Our final selection comes from Italy as the quarter-final Coppa Italia tie between Lazio and Juventus is set to be a low-scoring affair.

A quick glance at the recent results of both clubs would make you think that this could end up being a goal-fest as the pair of them have been finding the net with regularity of late.

I'm not convinced though as Juventus have been the masters of the clean sheet on the road and Massimiliano Allegri has got them back to their best after a slow start.

The hosts will know that they will have to dig in to have any chance of progressing to the final four and I expect a cautious approach - early on at least.

The last four meetings between the two sides have ended with exactly two goals being scored after 90 minutes and that includes last season's Coppa Italia Final that Juve went on to win in extra time.
