Competition: Brazil Serie A
Market: RB Bragantino win
Odds: 3/5 @ 888sport
Only looking to widen their buffer at the top of the table in midweek, RB Bragantino will welcome Cuiaba to the Estádio Nabi Abi Chedid on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, despite being disappointed to have only picked up a point against Ceará when opening July, Bragantino made an immediate return to winning ways over the weekend. Making a host of improvements from last season and many across Brazil tipping them as the leading contender in the title chase, The Red Bulls find themselves holding a two-point buffer at the top of the table and the mood in their camp should be at a real high. Last seen picking up a deserved 2-1 victory against São Paulo on the road, Head Coach Maurício Barbieri is yet to see his side taste defeat since opening the 2021 campaign. Also managing to muster themselves a points tally of 16 from their last six contests, there is no doubt that a high-flying Bragantino will be smelling a golden chance late on Wednesday night to only extend on their recent purple patch.
As for the visitors, while Bragantino might have continued on their own stellar run of form, the same cannot be said for a struggling Cuiaba. Battling it out at the foot of the table and already sat two points adrift of safety, Head Coach Jorginho finds the pressure firmly on his shoulders, despite only making their top-flight return over the summer. Tipped as one of the standout picks to be hit with an immediate Serie B return this season, The Yellow and Greens are remarkably yet to pick up a single Serie A victory so far this year and they face another stern test in midweek. Coming off the back of back-to-back defeats against Atlético Mineiro and Flamengo on home soil, Cuiaba have also gained a recent reputation for their issues in front of goal. Given the huge recent gulf between Wednesday’s opponents, we’re backing a home victory here.
Bet: RB Bragantino 3/5 to beat Cuiaba in Wednesday’s Brazil Serie A matchup @ 888sport
