The Daily Acca: Colombia to continue to impress

Colombia striker - Radamel Falcao
Radamel Falcao is yet to open his account in this tournament

It's a late one for Paul Robinson this Friday night as he starts in the Copa America, before finishing in the MLS. Here are his selections:

- Back Colombia @ 6/5
- Back New York RB & BTTS @ 11/4
- Back Los Angeles @ 7/10

The Acca pays approximately 13/1

Colombia to march into the semis

Bet 1: Back Colombia @ 6/5 - KO 00:00 BST (Sat)

It's quarter-final action from the Copa America here and the form team of the tournament thus far has been Colombia.

Carlos Queiroz's side won all three of their group games to nil, and while they didn't have to face the likes of Brazil or Uruguay, they still eased past, Argentina, and beat a Paraguay team who took Brazil to penalties last night.

The Colombians have now kept five clean sheets in a row, and they shouldn't be phased by Chile. Reinaldo Rueda's men won their opening two matches of the competition, but they were put in their place by Uruguay last time out, and I feel that their best days are behind them.

Metros to win but clean sheet to prove elusive

Bet 2: Back New York RB & BTTS @ 11/4 - KO 01:00 BST (Sat)

The New York Red Bulls slipped to their sixth defeat of the MLS season when they were last in league action, but they are still in fifth place in the Eastern Conference, and have games in hand over the top three.

The loss came away from home, and at the Red Bull Arena, the Metros have won four of their last six - including a 4-0 thumping of Real Salt Lake, most recently. Interestingly though, that was only their third home clean sheet of the campaign.

Chicago Fire are the visitors here, and they played the aforementioned, Real Salt Lake, last time out. They were held to a 1-1 draw in front of their own fans, and it extended their winless run to five matches.

The Men in Red are yet to record a victory on the road this term - five defeats and three draws - but they did at least score four goals across their last three games.

No stopping Los Angeles

Bet 3: Back Los Angeles @ 7/10 - KO 03:00 BST (Sat)

Bob Bradley's, Los Angeles, are dominating the Western Conference this year, and they would also be clear of the Eastern one too.

They have taken 37 points from a possible 48 - winning 11, drawing four and losing just once. Four of their last five games have ended with them taking the three points, which includes away wins at Columbus Crew and Portland Timbers.

The hosts in this one are Colorado Rapids, and they are at the opposite end of the table. They have just 16 points from their 17 fixtures to date, and while they have actually won their last three in this stadium, they came against Columbus Crew (10th of 12), Cincinnati (12th of 12), and Minnesota United (7th of 12).

The visitors did the double over the Rapids last season - winning 3-0 here and 2-0 at home. More of the same tonight.
