The stage is set for a home win at the Ricoh

It's that time of the week where Paul Robinson selects a home win, an away win, a match to go over 2.5 goals and a match to go under 2.5 goals. Here are his selections...

"Back Coventry @ 2.75 (7/4);

Back Atletico Nacional @ 1.9 (10/11);

Back Over 2.5 Goals in Internacional v Ypiranga De Erechim @ 2.2 (6/5);

Back Under 2.5 Goals in Carpi v Bologna @ 1.5 (1/2);

Bet 1: Coventry (HOME) @ 2.75 (7/4)

It's been quite a season for Coventry as they returned to the Ricoh Arena, changed their manager and got themselves into a relegation fight.

A trio of recent wins for the Sky Blues has helped move them three points clear of the dreaded drop zone and a further victory this evening would see them climb to 15th.

Things haven't been going well on home soil for Tony Mowbray's men as apart from the 2-1 success over the MK Dons in February, they haven't won in front of their own fans in the league since October.

That has to change soon though and they play host to a Leyton Orient team who are third from bottom. They've lost seven of their last 11 on their travels and they couldn't beat Coventry at Brisbane Road earlier in the season.


Bet 2: Atletico Nacional (AWAY) @ 1.9 (10/11)

They're a dozen games into the Apertura in Colombia and Atletico Nacional can move to the top with a win tonight. They are in third place, just one point behind Deportivo Cali and Medelin and they come into this fixture having won four of their last six outings.

Juan Carlos Osorio's side may be away from home but they have recorded wins at Medellin and Envigado recently, and 'Los Verdolagas' have won on their last three visits to The Independence Stadium.

Hosts, Boyaca Chico are struggling towards the foot of the table and they haven't won any of their last six matches in all competitions. Their two most recent efforts resulted in defeat and they both came against clubs who aren't even in the top eight, let alone the top three.


Bet 3: Internacional v Ypiranga De Erechim (Over 2.5 goals) @ 2.2 (6/5)

Gremio lead the way in the Gaucho 1 standings but Internacional have a game in hand where a win would see them go top. They may face minnows in the form of Ypiranga De Erechim but Casemiro Mior's men are third in the table having taken 23 points from their 13 matches.

I can't see them being much of a threat to Diego Aguirre's side however and I expect the goals to flow. The hosts may have only netted once in their last three matches - all 1-0 wins - but if we concentrate on their home form only, they put three past three different teams on their last five appearances.

Internacional fans have seen plenty of goals at Estádio Beira-Rio as seven of the last 10 fixtures there have gone over 2.5, and it is also worth considering that the visitors have only failed to score once in eight away games.


Bet 4: Carpi v Bologna (Under 2.5 goals) @ 1.5 (1/2)

Italy is the scene of our under 2.5 selection as the top two in Serie B meet at Stadio Sandro Cabassi.

Carpi are enjoying a fantastic campaign as they lead the way with 65 points - nine clear of their nearest rivals. The key to their success has been at the back, as with just 24 conceded, they have the best defensive record in the entire division. Their matches this term are averaging 2.24 goals each time, with 20 of their 33 finishing with two or fewer being scored.

Bologna will also be pleased with their season to date as following their relegation from the top flight, they are in great shape to go straight back up. They may trail Carpi by nine points, but the top two go up automatically and they have a healthy four point cushion over Vicenza behind them.

As far as the goals go, with 41 scored and 26 conceded, their games are averaging 2.03 goals per 90 minutes. A whopping nine of their last 10 have gone under 2.5 and they will be more than happy with a point this evening.
