Football Bet of the Day: Paralysis in Peru

Melgar players celebrate a goal
We're not likely to see much of this behaviour tonight

After securing 3/4 winners this week, Kev's on the hunt for more profit in Peru.

"Both Melgar and Uni San Martin have seen both teams score in just one of their last six outings, and the visitors have scored just nine times all season."

Back No in the Both Teams To Score market at 2.0421/20

Misfiring attacks to struggle again

Melgar v Uni San Martin
Friday 18 September, 21:30

We gave Norwegian table-toppers Bodo Glimt an extensive list of things do against Lithuanian outfit Zalgiris last night, and they ticked off every one. They scored the first goal, led at half time, and their 3-1 win landed the Over 3.5 Goals part of the bet too. Bravo.

We'll make the long trip to Peru now, because Melgar are up against Uni San Martin, and I suspect we're in for a snoozefest. Both of these sides are in the lower reaches of the top flight, and both are struggling to score goals.

Melgar won the Torneo Clausura as recently as 2018, and they finished a respectable sixth last term. However. They are currently 13th in the standings, having won just four of their 11 matches. They have managed four clean sheets in that spell, but have also failed to score in three of their last five outings. Both teams have scored in just one of their last six games.

Uni San Martin are 17th in the table, and are on a seven-match winless run. They have scored just one goal in their last six matches, and have only netted nine times in the whole season. Like Melgar, both teams have found the net in just one of their last six games.

You can back No in the Both Teams To Score market at 2.0421/20 here, and that's a surprisingly attractive price.
