Our Oeste v Confiança predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below (including the best match odds).
Oeste, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 0-1 Serie B triumph against Cruzeiro.
It has not been often in recent times that Oeste haven’t conceded. The reality is that Rubrão have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 7 goals during that time. In any event, we’ll just have to find out whether the trend will continue on here in this game.
Coming into this meeting, Oeste have not been beaten in their last 2 league matches at home.
After tasting defeat last time out to Operário Ferroviário in Serie B action, Confiança and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
It is worth noting that Confiança have had real problems scoring goals over their last six encounters, recording the poor return of only 4. In those matches, Confiança have also seen the overall goal tally of opposing teams equal 8.
Going into this encounter, Confiança are without an away win for the past 3 league matches.
