Competition: Brazil Serie B
Market: Criciuma win
Odds: 21/20 @ 888sport
Looking to extend on their eye-catching unbeaten run in the early hours of Thursday, Criciuma will welcome Guarani to the Estádio Heriberto Hülse.
Starting with the hosts, while Criciuma might have only made their Serie B return earlier in the year, the Tigers are in the midst of what has been a hugely impressive run of form. Last seen picking up a 2-1 victory against lower-league Guarani de Palhoça while on Campeonato Catarinense duties, Head Coach Cláudio Tencati has seen his side gain plenty of plaudits. Finding a route into the top-half of the table, the Santa Catarina-based outfit are unbeaten in each of their last eight matchups across all formats. Looking to lay down another marker in midweek, it should also be noted that Criciuma have continued to shine while on home soil. Including a 2-1 win against CSA on July 25th, Tencati’s men have won each of their last four contests at the Estádio Heriberto Hülse by an aggregate score of 8-1.
As for the visitors, last seen putting in another worrying display as they were hit with a 2-1 loss at home against Gremio, Guarani are at the heart of a relegation scrap. Opening up the midweek fixtures sat five points adrift of safety, Head Coach Daniel Paulista will know that his side should face another stern test here. Really failing to pick up any kind of momentum since opening the 2022 campaign, the São Paulo-based outfit have failed to win any of their previous five Serie B outings. Likewise, with just a single victory to their name since the middle of June, Guarani should also be worried by their most recent trip to the Estádio Heriberto Hülse. Hit with a deserved 1-0 loss when they last made the trip to Santa Catarina, we’re backing a similar outcome in the early hours of Thursday.
Bet: Criciuma 21/20 to beat Guarani in Thursday’s Brazil Serie B battle @ 888sport
