It's a rare trip to Peru for Paul Robinson tonight as he fancies Uni San Martin to thwart Sporting Cristal.

"Sporting Cristal also had a tough Copa Libertadores match during the week so this is a quick turnaround for them."

Lay Sporting Cristal v Uni San Martin @ [1.9]

Uni San Martin v Sporting Cristal
Saturday April 22, 02:00 BST

The hosts are currently fourth of eight in Group A of the Torneo de Verano stage of the Peruvian Primera Division campaign. Only the team who finish top will make it to the final, and they already trail the leaders by nine points after nine games.

Their record at home isn't too bad though - two wins and two defeats - and they closed last season by going 10 unbeaten in front of their own fans. They lost their latest outing 2-1 at Academia Cantolao, but it's worth noting that they actually led 1-0 until they were reduced to 10 men in the 39th minute.

The visitors are the odds-on favourites for this fixture and as one of the biggest names in the country, it's understandable to see why the market has been formed that way.

They currently sit second in Group A - one point adrift of Melgar at the top - but their win record this season is only at 50%, and they have failed to win any of their last three on the road - conceding two goals on each occasion.

Sporting Cristal also had a tough Copa Libertadores match during the week so this is a quick turnaround for them. That's why, with their price trading at around the [1.9] mark, I have to make them my lay of the day.
