Competition: Brazil Serie B
Market: Goias win
Odds: 21/20 @ 888sport
Looking to extend on their promotion charge on Thursday night, Goias will make the trip to the Batistão when they face off against Confiança in midweek.
Starting with the hosts, while Confiança might have just about managed to claw themselves over the finish line and extend on their Serie B status last season, they are once again battling it out at the foot of the table. Tipped as a landslide pick to get hit with the drop this time around, Head Coach Rodrigo Santana finds his side opening the midweek fixtures sat five points adrift of safety. Knowing that they face another stern test on home soil, The Blues were last seen over the weekend when putting in another worrying display. Eventually getting hit with a deserved 1-0 defeat away at Cruzeiro, Confiança have lost each of their last four Serie B matchups on the spin. With their recent issues highlighted by a 4-2 defeat against fellow relegation scrappers Ponte Preta on August 14th, it should also be noted that Thursday’s hosts have collected just a single point from their last six home fixtures.
As for the visitors, while Goias would have been disappointed to have eventually settled for a point against Sampaio Corrêa last weekend, the Verdão do find themselves enjoying an extended unbeaten run. Leading the chase to book a Serie A return at the first attempt this season, Head Coach Marcelo Cabo should be smelling a golden chance in midweek. Knowing that victory at the Batistão could move them within touching distance of top spot, Thursday’s guests are unbeaten in each of their last six second-tier matchups, a run that stems back to July 24th. Last seen on the road picking up a 1-0 victory against Brusque, Goias should also be boosted by their previous meeting against the relegation scrappers. Landing a 2-0 win when they faced off against Confiança back in June, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
Bet: Goias 21/20 to beat Confiança in Thursday’s Brazil Serie B battle @ 888sport
