CRB will be hoping to return to winning ways here after a 3-1 Serie B losing effort in their last game against Juventude.
In that game, CRB had 50% possession and 10 attempts at goal with 2 on target. The only player to score for CRB was Falcão (90'). Juventude got 13 shots at goal with 6 on target. David da Hora (75') and Jean Irmer (90') scored for Juventude.
CRB haven’t been able to stop scoring goals, netting every time they’ve gone out to play in their last 6 games.
They’ve hit an aggregate of 12 during that time while seeing the number of goals scored against them stand at 5. Such a trend isn’t assured to be continued here, of course.
Their previous form shows that CRB:
- haven't won against Guarani in home games against them for the last 2 league games.
- are unbeaten in their last 10 home league matches. They have been so resilient here.
Guarani go into this game after a 3-0 Serie B win against Tombense in their most recent fixture.
In that game, Guarani managed 53% possession and 20 attempts at goal with 9 on target. The scorer for Guarani was Bruninho (31', 56'). On the other side, Tombense got 6 shots on goal with 3 of them on target.
A series of outstanding performances from the Guarani defensive unit has seen their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 3 from their past 6 fixtures overall. Over that same period of time, their forwards have scored 9.
Head to head
If we look at their past head to head meetings going back to 11/01/2021, neither club has come out on top overall with CRB winning 2 of those games, Guarani 2 and 2 being drawn after 90 minutes of play.
In all, 11 goals were shared by the two clubs in this period, with 6 of them from Galo and 5 belonging to Guarani. That’s an average goals per game of 1.83.
The previous league meeting featuring these clubs was Serie B match day 10 on 04/06/2023 and the score finished Guarani 0-1 CRB.
That time, Guarani managed 73% possession and 25 shots at goal with 3 on target.
On the other side, CRB got 7 shots on goal with 2 on target. Conceição (14') was the scorer.
Team News: CRB
The CRB boss Daniel Paulista will be grateful to have no fitness worries to speak of coming into this game owing to a fully healthy group available for selection.
Team News: Guarani
With a fully healthy group available to choose from, the Guarani boss Umberto Louzer does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever before this clash.
We envisage that Guarani have enough to get a goal against this CRB team, however it probably won’t quite be as many as they’ll concede.
We think that it’s going to be a tight encounter finishing with a 2-1 win for CRB after 90 minutes. There looks to be little in this one.
