There's a World Cup breather today, but there is still football on around the globe and Paul Robinson has picked out a 6/1 treble from Brazil's Serie B. Here are his selections:

- Back Coritiba @ 7/10
- Back BTTS in Avai v Goias @ 1/1
- Back BTTS in Atletico GO v Boa @ 11/10

The Acca pays approximately 6/1

Coritiba to strengthen their position towards the top

Bet 1: Back Coritiba @ 7/10 - KO 22:00 BST

The hosts lie sixth in the table following their relegation from the top flight last season, and as the first four earn automatic promotion, they are well placed to get back to Serie A at the first attempt.

Their recent form hasn't been great - no win in four - but they were only beaten once, and only one of those matches were played at home. It's 16 points from a possible 18 on this ground this term, and they have conceded just two goals.

Opponents, Paysandu, are in 11th, but nine of their 17 points came from their first three fixtures, and since that trio of wins, they have recorded only more victory from 10 attempts.

Recently it's been three defeats and two draws, while away from home it's three losses in four - with the other game being a draw against the second from bottom, CRB.


No clean sheets at Avai

Bet 2: Back BTTS in Avai v Goias @ 1/1 - KO 00:30 BST (Thurs)

Avai were another team who were relegated last year, but they are up in second after 13 games at this lower level - even if they trail the leaders by seven points.

One area where they don't trail Fortaleza (the league leaders) is in the goals scored category, as with 22 to their name, only Atletico GO have netted more than them. A dozen conceded at the other end has led to just one clean sheet at home this season, and while they might win here, I fancy the visitors to get on the scoresheet.

Goias are down in 16th, but that doesn't tell the whole story as the difference in points between them and Avai is only seven, and they come into the match in great form having won three and drawn one of their four most recent outings.

As far as the goals go, this selections has landed in each of their last eight games, and the only side that they have failed to net against on the road are the runaway leaders.


Goals galore with Atletico GO involved

Bet 3: Back BTTS in Atletico GO v Boa @ 11/10 - KO 00:30 BST (Thurs)

I mentioned in the above preview that the top scorers in the division are Atletico GO, and I see no reason to think that both teams to score won't land in their match against Boa tonight.

The visitors are bottom of the league with only seven points to their name, but their last two away results have been 1-1 draws, and both teams to score backers would have collected in three of their last four away from home.

Atletico GO may well have excelled in for the forward areas with their 23 goals for, but they have actually conceded the same amount - and 10 of them have come in their last four at home.
