It's three from the Brazilian top flight for Paul Robinson today as he's picked out a 17/2 treble that features the top two in the division. Here are his selections:

- Back BTTS in Cruzeiro v Sao Paulo @ 1/1
- Back Flamengo to win to nil @ 1/1
- Back Internacional to win to nil @ 7/5

The Acca pays approximately 17/2

Goals to flow in Belo Horizonte

Bet 1: Back BTTS in Cruzeiro v Sao Paulo @ 1/1 - KO 20:00 BST

These two teams saw their undefeated runs end during the week as Cruzeiro lost for the first time in five games at Corinthians, while Sao Paulo were beaten for the first time in six at Gremio.

The latter would have been mightily disappointed as Diego Aguirre's men took an early lead in that match, and a victory would have sent them to the top of the table.

The good news for us is that it was their seventh away game on the bounce where they found the net at least once, and this selection has landed in five of them.

The hosts drew a blank, but that's not something that they have done in any of their last half dozen in front of their own fans, and both teams have got on the scoresheet in their three latest outings at home.

Leaders to have no issues against Sport

Bet 2: Back Flamengo to win to nil @ 1/1 - KO 20:0 BST

One team who would have been delighted with Sao Paulo's slip-up would have been Flamengo. A draw at Santos left their position as the league leaders in jeopardy, but they managed to hold on to it, and they remain two points clear.

A fixture against Sport Recife couldn't come at much of a better time for Mauricio Barbieri's side as the visitors are in miserable form. A 1-0 loss at Vitoria during the week was their fourth in five, and the only bright-spot during that period was a 0-0 home draw.

The hosts have already won six times on this ground this term - all of which were to nil. That's pretty good going from only eight matches played, and I can't see any reason to suggest that Sport will suddenly turn their form around.

Another away defeat for Botafogo

Bet 3: Back Internacional to win to nil @ 7/5 - KO 20:00 BST

There was midweek disappointment for Internacional as they fell to only their third loss of the season - a 2-1 reverse at America Mineiro. They are still fifth in the league though, which is some going considering that they have only just been promoted back to the top flight - despite the fact that they are a big club.

I have no concerns about them back in Porto Alegre however as they are undefeated at home this term - five wins and two draws. Only two goals have been conceded in total by Odair Hellmann's team, and last time out here they won 1-0.

Botafogo put two defeats behind them on Thursday to beat Chapecoense 1-0, but their record on the road doesn't make great reading. They have won just once away from home this year, and have been beaten in five of their eight matches - the last two of which were both to nil.
