Derry to get some joy at out-of-sorts Cork

Bet 1: Back BTTS in Cork City v Derry City @ 1/1 - KO 19:45 BST

It hasn't been the greatest couple of weeks for Cork as their seven match winning streak in the league ended with a 2-1 defeat at title rivals, Dundalk, and they then followed that up with a 0-0 draw against Shamrock, which ended their 100% home record this season.

Add in a Champions League exit to Legia Warsaw - 4-0 on aggregate, losing both games - and a couple of friendly defeats to English opposition, and there are now questions to be answered by John Caulfield's side.

Opponents, Derry City, won in the Europa League last time out - a 2-1 success at Dinamo Minsk, but it wasn't enough to turn round a 2-0 first leg defeat. That being said, the result will give them plenty of confidence, and they will be aiming to improve on their fifth position in the league, to finish in the top three.

As far as the goals go, the visitors have netted in 11 of their 13 on the road this season, but they haven't kept a clean sheet in their last six - conceding 18 goals times during that period. It's worth noting that the hosts have only had two of their last five on this ground see this selection land, but they aren't in great form and I can definitely envisage them conceding this evening.


No problems for Internacional in Brazil

Bet 2: Back Internacional to win to nil @ 10/11 - KO 00:00 BST (Tues)

Internacional are making the most of their swift return to the Brazilian top flight as they are up in sixth place, and can go third if they win their game in hand tonight.

I very much doubt that that will be an issue for Odair Hellmann's men as they are taking on bottom of the table, Ceara. Now Ceara did win last time out, but it was their first success of the campaign, and this is much tougher than a home match against Sport Recife.

Their record on their travels this term is four defeats and two draws from six fixtures, and they scored just three times during that period. The hosts on the other hand have won four and drawn two of their half dozen home games, and they kept four clean sheets in the process.


Atletico GO to keep their excellent run going

Bet 3: Back Atletico GO @ 19/20 - KO 00:00 BST (Tues)

This Brazilian Serie B fixture sees two of the division's in-form teams take each other on, and I'm expecting home advantage to tell in the end.

Atletico GO have been running rampant following a slightly in-different start to the year. They are unbeaten in six - four victories bookended by a pair of draws, and their two latest outings on this ground have ended in wins.

CSA are second in the table, so they are no pushovers, and they drew against top of the league, Fortaleza, when they were last in action. It's hard to pick holes in their form as they are seven unbeaten, but it is worth noting that five of those were draws.
