Against All Odds: All the boys to give us goals in Argentina

3Jun 2013

Argentina - Torneo Inicial

Table-topping Newell's Old Boys travel to All Boys in the Argentinian Torneo Final tonight and Paul Robinson thinks that there is plenty of value to be had in the goal markets.

All Boys are currently 16th in the second phase of the campaign after finishing 12th in the Torneo Inicial. It's a very tight league though and they're only four points off Racing Club in 11th with a game in hand over some of their rivals.

José Santos Romero's side are in a terrible run of form at the moment though as they've lost their last three in a row, all without scoring a goal. Albo fell to 2-0 defeats at River Plate and Colon, with a 3-0 home loss against San Lorenzo sandwiched in between.

Clearly the defence needs to tighten up but the onus will be on the forward players to break a run of four matches without a goal. There is some hope though as All Boys netted twice in three successive games at Estadio Islas Malvinas from the end of February to the beginning of April.

Newell's Old Boys are within touching distance of winning the Torneo Final to set up a Championship clash with Torneo Inicial victors Velez Sarsfield. Gerardo Martino's men have dominated this part of the season and they are on for a historic treble of Primera Division, Copa Argentina and Copa Libertadores successes.

Ignacio Scocco is the main man and he's scored an incredible 28 goals for Newell's this term. He is supported by a whole host of attack minded players, including ex Liverpool winger Maxi Rodriguez, making them deadly on the counter.

La Lepra have netted 31 goals in 15 games in the league, which is eight more than any other club. Of their last nine away from home, Newell's have scored two or more on five occasions, but they've only kept one clean sheet.

There were three goals when these two last met and I think we could be in for more of the same tonight. That's why, with under 2.5 goals trading as low as 1.69 , I have to make it my lay of the day
