A 94th minute penalty denied Paul Robinson a 10/1 Daily Acca win yesterday, but he's aiming to bounce back in Brazil with an 8/1 treble. Here are his selections:

- Back Under 1.5 Goals in Ponte Preta v America MG @ 8/5
- Back Fluminense @ 20/23
- Back BTTS in Corinthians v Bahia @ 9/10

The Acca pays approximately 8/1

Goals at a premium at Ponte Preta

Bet 1: Back Under 1.5 Goals in Ponte Preta v America MG @ 8/5 - KO 23:00 BST

This is the first leg of a Copa do Brasil fourth round tie, between two teams who are currently second and third in Serie B.

They both come into the game on the back of victories, as the hosts made it two victories in a row at Avai on Friday - with both scorelines being 1-0.

The visitors also won 1-0 when they were last in action, but prior to that, they were beaten by the same scoreline at Sampaio Correa.

The picture that this is painting is that both team's matches have been low-scoring of late, and with this being the first leg of two, I expect more of the same here.

Atletico GO to be beaten

Bet 2: Back Fluminense @ 20/23 - KO 01:30 BST (Thurs)

Another fourth round Brazilian Cup tie tonight sees Fluminense host Atletico GO, and I am taking the home side to come out on top.

Flu bounced back from a pair of defeats to beat Corinthians at the weekend, and as the two losses came against Sao Paulo and Flamengo, they can be forgiven. Prior to that they had started well with three wins and two draws from their opening seven fixtures.

Atletico GO are 11th in Serie A, and they are in good form, having taken eight points from a possible 12 of late. They have won their last two - both of which were away from home - but the hosts are a stronger team, and I expect home advantage to tell.

Goals at both ends at Corinthians

Bet 3: Back BTTS in Corinthians v Bahia @ 9/10 - KO 01:30 BST (Thurs)

We finish with a Brazilian Serie A fixture, where I believe that there is a good chance of both teams scoring.

Neither side are in good form, with Corinthians coming into the game on the back of two defeats, and Bahia on a winless run of seven.

The visitors' main downfall has been in defence, as they have conceded 15 goals in nine outings, which is the second worst defensive record in the league.

Corinthians have conceded 14 of their own in the same amount of matches, but at the other end of the pitch, the pair of them are averaging more than a goal a game each.
