It's Colombia and the USA for Paul Robinson tonight as he takes in two fixtures from South America before heading north for an MLS clash. Here are his selections:

- Back Under 2.5 Goals in Deportivo Cali v America de Cali @ 40/85
- Back The Draw in Rionegro v Atletico Nacional @ 9/5
- Back BTTS in Real Salt Lake v New England @ 2/5

The Acca pays approximately 5/1

Goals at a premium in Colombia

Bet 1: Back Under 2.5 Goals in Deportivo Cali v America de Cali @ 40/85 - KO 00:00 BST (Fri)

The hosts come into the game having gone two matches without scoring a goal. They drew 0-0 at Atletico Nacional last time out and prior to that they were beaten on this ground by a 2-0 scoreline.

The visitors scored in their last two outings, but they lost both 2-1 and they have now gone four games without a win. As far as the goals go, three of their last six on the road have seen this selection land, but the stats are much better for Deportivo Cali.

Of their last nine at home, seven of them have seen under 2.5 backers collect, and given that they have netted just two goals in their last five matches anywhere, the omens for a low-scoring affair are good.

Spoils to be shared at Rionegro

Bet 2: Back The Draw in Rionegro v Atletico Nacional @ 9/5 - KO 02:00 BST (Fri)

Staying in Colombia, Atletico Nacional are a big name, but they are only ninth in the standings at present, and they have won just one of their last four league games.

Away from home it's two straight defeats, but it is worth noting that prior to that they went six unbeaten. They could really do with getting into the top eight to make the final series, so they can't really afford a defeat tonight against the team who are seventh.

Rionegro ended a run of no win in two last time out with a 1-0 win at Patriotas Boyaca, but when they were last in front of their own fans they were beaten 3-0 by Santa Fe.

Matches between this pair are usually tight, as they have faced each other seven times since the start of 2016, and three have ended all square, while three others have had just the one goal in them.

Goals at both ends in Real Salt Lake v New England

Bet 3: Back BTTS in Real Salt Lake v New England @ 2/5 - KO 02:00 BST (Fri)

We finish in the MLS as goals look a certainty between Real Salt Lake and New England.

The Utah based club have gone four games without a win, but they did at least find the net in three of them, and they are yet to fail to score on this ground this season.

They are currently on a run of six home games in a row to have both teams to score land and the visitors tonight are in good scoring form on their travels.

New England have netted in each of their last four away from home, with the three latest having goals at both ends. They will also be buoyed by the fact that they recorded their first win in five games at the weekend.
