Tombense will be looking for an improved result here after the 2-0 Serie B loss in their previous game against CRB.

It’s been all too rare in recent games where Tombense have shown defensive steel. The reality is that Tombense have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 6 goals along the way. It will be interesting to see whether or not that trend can be sustained in this game.
