It's three more from Brazil's top flight for Paul Robinson tonight and the treble pays around the 15/2 mark. Here are his selections:

- Back Fluminese @ 4/5
- Back BTTS in Santos v Gremio @ 6/5
- Back America MG @ 23/20

The Acca pays approximately 15/2

Vitoria to roll over on the road once again

Bet 1: Back Fluminese @ 4/5 - KO 23:00 BST

The hosts are in mid-table but they only need a top six finish to have a chance of qualifying for next year's Copa Libertadores, and with 16 games of the season to go, a good run would put them in the mix.

A bad run however would have them looking over their shoulder however, as despite their 12th place position, they are just four points clear of the relegation zone. I can't see them having any issues tonight though as they have won 50% of their home games this term, and the visitors have a woeful away record.

Vitoria have lost eight of their 11 on their travels, and their sole win was back in the middle of May. Their five latest away scorelines - all defeats - were 3-0, 4-1, 4-0, 4-0 and 1-0.

Goals at both ends in Santos

Bet 2: Back BTTS in Santos v Gremio @ 6/5 - KO 23:00 BST

Santos have found their groove again since the appointment of Cuca as manager, and they are now up to 10th in the table, courtesy of three consecutive victories.

The most important aspect for them is that they have started scoring goals again, and across those three wins, they scored a total of eight goals.

Gremio notched four themselves when they were last in action, and they are pushing to keep themselves in the title mix. A victory tonight would see them move to within three points of the leaders, so they have a huge incentive to go for the win.

As far as the goals go, two of their last three away from home have seen this selection land and they have found the net at least once in five of their last seven on the road.

America MG to ease relegation fears

Bet 3: Back America MG @ 23/20 - KO 00:00 BST (Fri)

The selection won Serie B last season to earn promotion back to the top flight, and so far they are holding their own with 26 points from 22 matches.

Adílson Batista's side have only been beaten at home on two occasions this term, and they are undefeated in five. It is worth noting that four of those were draws, but they face a travel-sick opponent tonight.

Vasco da Gama are yet to win a match away from home this year, and they have taken just one point from a possible 15 of late. Their three most recent away trips have seen them fire blanks and I don't fancy them at all in this one.
