Against All Odds: Colon to keep on providing the entertainment

The Colon fans have been on a rollercoaster this season
The Colon fans have been on a rollercoaster this season

Paul Robinson is expecting goals in Argentina tonight as Independiente host a Colon side who have been involved in a lot of high-scoring matches lately.

"Colon – a team not usually known for goalfests – have seen all five of their games this term reward under 2.5 layers."

Lay Under 2.5 goals in Independiente v Colon @ 1.75/7

Independiente v Colon
Sunday March 6, 00:30 GMT

In a break from the norm, I will start with the visitors first as they are the main reason for this selection. Colon - a team not usually known for goalfests - have seen all five of their games this term reward under 2.5 layers.

Things began fantastically well for Dario Franco's side as they won their opening three fixtures - 2-1, 4-2 and 3-0. It's been two crushing defeats since though as they were thrashed 4-1 at Godoy Cruz and then 3-0 at home to Rosario Central last weekend.

A trip to Independiente is not exactly what they would have been looking for right now but last season's fifth placed finishers aren't firing on all cylinders at the moment.

Mauricio Pellegrino's men are down in 11th place having taken just five points from their opening five fixtures. They won their first game against Belgrano but since then it's been two draws and two defeats.

The goal stats don't make great reading for us as all five went under 2.5, however they could use this match as a confidence booster with Colon's defence being so porous this term.

There's a good chance of us getting a few goals here so with under 2.5 trading at around the 1.75/7 mark, I have to make it my lay of the day.
