Back in Brazils Serie B its an early morning start on Wednesday (01.50am). ABC sit in 16th place just above the relegation zone. However they boast the best current form (P5 W5 D0 L0) and the third best form over the last 10 games (P10 W7 D0 L3). They are unbeaten at home in 10 and that includes 6 straight victories at 3-2, 3-1, 2-0, 4-2, 2-1, 3-2. Their latest victory was against runaway league leaders Palmeiras, winning 3-2 at home. In contrast, Sao Caetano are struggling in the relegation places. They have just 1 point from their last 10 away games, conceding 27 goals. Over 2.5 goals is overpriced at 10/11 but I will take a punt on ABC to score 3 or more @14/5, given Sao Caetano are in such dire form and have conceded 3 or more in 5 of their last 10 away from home.

Staying in Brazil on Thursday evening, the Serie A clash between Santos and Internacional is interesting. Both these sides pretty much win, lose and draw in equal amounts. Both Santos and Inter have kept just two clean sheets in 11 games but have also had little trouble scoring during that time. Both teams to score is the bet. In Japans Emperors Cup, J-League side Kashiwa have not won or kept a clean sheet in 8 matches. They face a tricky tie against J2 side Okayama who are vastly improved and are scoring regularly (13 consecutive matches). Again both teams to score is the bet.
