"Parana have scored in 10/13 away games, including four of the most recent five"

Back Both Teams to Score @ [2.24] in Operario PR v Parana

Operario PR v Parana
Tuesday 23:15

Our optimism was misplaced in Greece last night. Lamia and Panaitolikos played out a goalless draw that does nothing for anyone.

We're looking to bounce back in Brazil, where one of tonight's Serie B matches sees seventh-placed Parana travel to ninth-placed Operario PR. BTTS has been the right bet in five of Operario's last six league games, including 3/3 at Estadio Germano Kruger, and we're ready to punt on it at an odds-against price for this one.

The, erm, Ghost of the Village are a robust W10-D2-L2 on home turf this season, having scored themselves in each of their last 11. At the other end, they have conceded in each of the last three.

Visiting Parana are an even W5-D3-L5 on the road this season. Recently, they've been creaking at the back, conceding in 6/7 (10/13 overall). So we fancy tonight's hosts can grab a goal against them. At the other end, Parana have scored themselves in 10/13, including four of the most recent five. So they too pose a notable goal threat, which makes [2.24] about BTTS look generous.
