The Daily Acca: Stay up through the night with this 17/1 South American Special

It's going to be tight in Colombia tonight
It's going to be tight in Colombia tonight

It's all kicking off in South America tonight for Paul Robinson as he feels there is value to be had in the Copa Sudamericana and the Colombian top flight.

- Back Over 2.5 Goals in Union Espanola v Sport Huancayo @ 11/10
- Back The Draw in Defensa y Justicia v America de Cali @ 2/1
- Back The Draw in Patriotas v Atletico Nacional @ 19/10

The Acca pays approximately 17/1

Bet 1: Back Over 2.5 Goals in Union Espanola v Sport Huancayo @ 11/10 - KO 00:30 GMT (Fri)

This first leg match sees Chile take on Peru and it should result in a high-scoring affair, with the hosts getting most, if not all of the goals.

These two sides are a class apart and Union Espanola are back in this competition for the first time since 2009. They have opened up their domestic campaign with a win and a draw - scoring twice in both, as the pair of them have seen this selection land.

The visitors have had a few attempts in the Sudamericana in recent seasons, but they haven't really achieved much of note. In the Peruvian top flight they have won one and lost one this term - conceding five goals in total.


Bet 2: Back The Draw in Defensa y Justicia v America de Cali @ 2/1 - KO 00:30 GMT (Fri)

This Sudamericana fixture should be much closer than the above and I fancy it to end all square in Argentina tonight.

Defensa y Justicia enjoyed a morale boosting win last Friday as prior to that they had lost three league matches on the bounce. They are only 14th in the Superliga after 15 games and they didn't last long in this competition last year.

America de Cali are a Colombian club who have started their season with a win and a draw - and that followed on from three friendly victories. They are proving quite hard to beat on their travels of late - five draws from their last seven away from home - and they will gladly take a 0-0 here.


Bet 3: Back The Draw in Patriotas v Atletico Nacional @ 19/10 - KO 01:00 GMT (Fri)

Atletico Nacional are probably the biggest name in Colombian football and they have started this season in fine form with two league wins. They did lose the Superliga to Millonarios, but in the Primera A they have won both games 1-0.

The hosts opened up with a surprise 2-0 success at Santa Fe, before losing 1-0 at Millonarios last time. They rarely lose at home - one defeat in 16 on this ground - but they do draw their fair share of matches.

The visitors can be hit or miss on the road, and while they haven't drawn too many themselves, the result usually only has one goal in it, so it's not like they are far off.
