Against All Odds: Relegated duo to produce a few goals

The Goias players will fancy their chances of picking up some away points
The Goias players will fancy their chances of picking up some away points

It's action from Brazil's second tier tonight for Paul Robinson as he thinks that under 2.5 goals is far too short for the fixture between Joinville and Goias.

"They netted four times when we last saw them in action and prior to that they put two past Atletico GO and even managed a goal at the second placed, CRB."

Lay Under 2.5 goals in Joinville v Goias @ 1.4640/85

Joinville v Goias
Wednesday July 20, 01:00 BST

These two clubs are on the decline as not only were they both relegation from the top flight last season, they are both struggling in Serie B after 16 games of the latest campaign.

The hosts are in 18th place having taken just 14 points from a possible 48, while the visitors are only faring marginally better with 18 points to their name.

It's the goals we're concentrating on here however and despite Joinville being the joint lowest scorers in the division, they have netted four times in their last three outings at home.

Goias' stats are the main reason for this selection as with 17 scored and 20 conceded, their matches this year are averaging 2.31 goals each time. They netted four times when we last saw them in action and prior to that they put two past Atletico GO and even managed a goal at the second placed, CRB.

We are getting great value in opposing goals in this one, even if it is far from guaranteed. Which is why, with under 2.5 trading at around the 1.4640/85 mark, I have to make it my lay of the day.
