The Big Wednesday Multiple: Red Bull gives you goals

There's usually goals when Red Bull Salzburg are involved
There's usually goals when Red Bull Salzburg are involved

There was a big winner for Paul Robinson this time last week and he's hoping to repeat that today. Here are his selections...

"Back Corinthians @ 1.4 (2/5)

Back Ajax @ 2.75 (7/4)

Back Over 2.5 Goals in Red Bull Salzburg v Malmo FF @ 1.53 (8/15)

Back Under 2.5 Goals in Atletico MG v Sao Paulo @ 1.83 (5/6)

The Multiple pays approximately 10.78 (10/1)"

Bet 1: Corinthians (HOME) @ 1.4 (2/5)

The hosts are showing that they are genuine contenders for the Brazilian Campeonato this season as, after 15 games, they sit in second place, just two points behind leaders, Atletico Mineiro.

Aside from a lacklustre performance against Palmeiras back in May, Corinthians have won every single home match and they've now kept three clean sheets in a row in front of their own fans.

Vasco da Gama on the other hand are floundering towards the foot of the table following nine losses from 15 starts this term. They pulled off a shock win at Fluminese in their last away game but prior to that it was five defeats and a draw this season and they were beaten 4-1 at home by Pamleiras at the weekend.


Bet 2: Ajax (AWAY) @ 2.75 (7/4)

After failing to win the Eredivisie last season, Ajax are having to come through qualifying for the first time in a while. They haven't been handed an easy draw in the shape of Rapid Vienna, but I think they have enough class to make it through the tie and are great value to win this away leg.

There is no denying that their record outside of the Netherlands is poor in the Champions League but they have been facing teams who are a cut above the Austrians in the main.

Experience should also prove a factor as the hosts haven't featured in Europe's elite club competition since 2008 and that was a brief stay as they were knocked out in qualifying by Anorthosis.


Bet 3: Red Bull Salzburg v Malmo FF (Over 2.5 goals) @ 1.53 (8/15)

If there's one thing that's consistent about Red Bull Salzburg is that when they play, there are normally plenty of goals, and I don't expect anything less this evening, despite it being the first leg of a Champions League qualifier.

During the qualifying rounds for this competition last year, three of their four fixtures rewarded over 2.5 backers and their opening game of their domestic campaign saw three goals netted. Last season their matches averaged 3.92 goals each time in the league as they scored 99 times in 36 outings.

Swedish club, Malmo FF, don't have stats quite as sexy as that but they aren't a low-scoring team either. They are averaging pretty much two goals per game in the Allsvenskan this year and with 22 conceded at the other end, their fixtures are averaging 3.24 goals per 90 minutes.


Bet 4: Atletico MG v Sao Paulo (Under 2.5 goals) @ 1.83 (5/6)

Leaders, Atletico MG, are the team to beat in Brazil this year and they got back to winning ways on Sunday following a 1-0 defeat at Corinthians the weekend before.

Opponents, Sao Paulo, also won at the weekend and last season's runners-up will be hoping to build on that and string a few results together that push them right back in the title picture.

As they are only five points behind Mineiro anyway, a draw would suit them just fine here as not even the most optimistic fan would expect them to win at Independência.

That should lead to a defensive approach from Juan Carlos Osorio's side and with the hosts not having scored more than twice in any of their last half dozen at home, we should be in for a low-scoring affair.
