Paul Robinson was just a single goal away from landing yesterday's Daily Acca, but he's back today with a 4/1 shot that he has high hopes for. Here are his selections:

- Back BTTS in Leiknir Reykjavik v Fram @ 1/2
- Back Figueirense @ 9/10
- Back BTTS in Atletico GO v Paysandu @ 4/5

The Acca pays approximately 4/1

No clean sheets in Iceland

Bet 1: Back BTTS in Leiknir Reykjavik v Fram @ 1/2 - KO 21:15 BST

This is an Icelandic top flight fixture that should have goals for both teams.

The hosts are seventh of 12 in the standings and they have conceded 17 goals in their 13 outings to date. They have played half a dozen times at home this term and four of the six have seen this selection land.

The visitors are in sixth place, but they do have four more points than their opponents - despite only being one place higher. They have won five of their 13 matches and scored a total of 25 goals in the process.

Last time out on their travels they put three past Selfoss, which took their away tally to 11 for the season away from home, and five of their six have had goals at both ends.


CRB to be checked by promotion chasers

Bet 2: Back Figueirense @ 9/10 - KO 23:15 BST

Over to Brazil now for our second leg and this time I am backing Figueirense to enhance their promotion credentials at the expense of CRB.

The selection are third in the table and they can move level on points with CSA in second with a victory. They need to bounce back from a defeat last time out - a 2-0 reverse at Paysandu - but they did beat Vila Nova on their most recent outing at home.

CRB are fourth from bottom in Serie B and they have gone three without a win - although their last two were draws. That being said, those couple of points came in front of their own fans, and on the road it's six defeats from nine attempts this term.


It pays to back goals at Atletico GO

Bet 3: Back BTTS in Atletico GO v Paysandu @ 4/5 - KO 01:30 BST (Wed)

We conclude by staying in Brazil's Serie B and I'm expecting goals when Atletico GO entertain Paysandu.

When it comes to high-scoring affairs, the hosts top the charts as their matches are averaging 3.11 goals each time this year. That won't matter to them though as their aim is to earn promotion, but their long unbeaten run came to an end at the weekend as they lost 2-1 at Sao Bento.

Paysandu made it back to back wins - and back to back clean sheets - at the weekend, but they were both on home soil. They haven't won on their travels since their opening away game of the campaign, but interestingly enough, they did score in seven of the eight attempts.
