Looking to extend on their Serie B purple patch late on Tuesday night, Mirassol will travel to Manaus when they meet Amazonas.

Amazonas

Starting with the hosts, while Amazonas might have secured a much-welcomed 1-0 victory against Santos earlier in the month, Luizinho Vieira’s men have endured a real struggle since making their Serie B return this season. Expected to be at the heart of a relegation scrap this year, Luizinho Vieira’s men have recorded just a single victory from any of their first eight appearances across all competitions. Crashing out of the Copa do Brasil last week as they suffered a 1-0 defeat at home against Brazilian giants Flamengo, the one-time Botafogo coach will also have a headache over his side’s extended struggles in the final third. Along with not recording more than a single strike in a Serie B appearance since the opening weekend, Amazonas have also drawn a blank in five of their last seven outings.

Team News

Not making a single appearance across any competition since opening up the 2024 campaign, former Corinthians starlet Guilherme Mantuan remains on the sidelines and will not feature on Tuesday night. Likewise, shown a late red card against Paysandu last week, 24-year-old defender Miranda will serve a one-match suspension here.

Despite notching just a single Serie B strike so far this season, one-time Manchester City striker Jo could be handed a full recall in midweek. Recently cementing his spot as Vieira’s number-one choice, 32-year-old Marcao will keep his spot between the sticks.

Mirassol

As for the visitors, although Mirassol might have eventually fallen short in the race to secure a top-flight return last season, Mozart’s men have once again impressed this time around. Flying out of the traps since opening up the 2024 campaign, the Yellows will certainly be smelling the chance to make another statement here. Last seen putting in another eye-catching performance as they secured a routine 2-0 victory at home against Ituano, the Sao Paulo-based outfit have come roaring back since their brief April wobble. Opening May with an action-packed 3-2 win against Ceara, Mirassol are unbeaten in all of their previous five Serie B appearances. Relishing a trip to Manaus late on Tuesday night, Mozart’s side will also be excited by their recent defensive steel. In fact, the midweek guests have conceded just a single goal in their last four consecutive outings.

Team News

Yet to make a single Serie B appearance this season and still dealing with a muscle injury, 29-year-old Yuri Lima is not expected to make a return on Tuesday night. However, aside from the former Fluminense midfielder, Mirassol have reported a clean bill of health and have no fresh concerns to worry about.

Finding the net in two of his previous three Serie B appearances and already recording a trio of second-tier goals, one-time porto starlet Dellatorre will spearhead Mirassol’s charge in the final third. Arriving from Vitoria on a season-long loan switch, Joao Victor will once again partner Luiz Otavio at the heart of Mozart’s defence.

Key Factors to Consider

    • Including a 2-0 victory away at Ituano last week, Mirassol are unbeaten in all of their previous five Serie B appearances.
    • Tuesday’s guests have conceded just a single goal in any of their last four Serie B appearances.
    • However, Mirassol have drawn a blank in three of their previous four away fixtures.
    • Amazonas have recorded just a single victory from any of their first eight appearances across all competitions.
    • The midweek hosts have drawn a blank in five of their previous seven appearances across all competitions.

    Conclusion

    Securing a rugged 2-0 victory away at Ituano last week and in the midst of a real Serie B flurry, Mirassol will certainly be excited by a trip to Manaus on Tuesday night. Hoping to skyrocket their way into the promotion places, the Yellows will be looking to cash in on an Amazonas squad that have struggled to find any kind of stability since opening up the 2024. Shipping just a single Serie B strike in almost 400 minutes of action, chances could come at a premium here.
