Confiança will be hoping for a better result following a 2-0 Serie B loss in their previous game against CRB.
Confiança have been quite ineffective in attack in more recent games. Their sum of goals stands at just 3 against opponents during the course of their previous 6 fixtures. In those games, Confiança have also seen the tally of goals against them come to 7.
Operário Ferroviário go into this encounter following on from a 2-0 Serie B win versus Oeste in their last game.
A series of very capable performances from the Operário Ferroviário defence has resulted in their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 4 from their last 6 outings overall. In that time, their own attack force has managed to score 8. We will see whether or not that trend can be continued on into this next match.
Coming into this fixture, Operário Ferroviário are without a win away from home in their last 5 matches in the league.
Team News: Confiança
Confiança manager will be thankful to have no fitness concerns whatsoever ahead of this clash with a completely healthy squad available to select from. Guilherme is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
Team News: Operário Ferroviário
Operário manager Gerson Gusmão has to choose a team with limited availability. Robinho (Bruised Ankle), Thiago Braga (Achilles tendon problems) and Martín Rodríguez (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be making appearances.
When taking everything into account, Operário Ferroviário could find themselves up against it to see themselves scoring against this Confiança side who we think will manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
Therefore, we predict a narrow 1-0 advantage for Confiança at full-time.
We’re expecting it to be that close.
