Rio Branco will be in action on Wednesday in this impending Copa do Brasil tie with Vitoria.
Scroll down to see all of the predictions, poll and statistics for Vitoria v Rio Branco - plus the latest match odds.
Vitoria will want to continue from where they left off last time out with the 0-1 Copa do Brasil success vs Águia Negra.
Their more recent scorelines really do illustrate the point that much respect should be given to the Vitoria backline. Leão da Barra have been stingy, with the tally of goals that have flown into the back of their net during their past six games standing at 3. Previous results aside, we will just have to wait and see whether such a trend shall persist in this next match.
Rio Branco will go into this meeting after a 2-1 Copa do Brasil win to defeat Sampaio Corrêa in their most recent game.
Team News: Vitoria
Vitoria manager Eugênio Geninho has a full complement, with no fitness concerns at all before this clash thanks to a completely injury-free squad available to select from.
Team News: Rio Branco
With a fully injury-free group available for selection, Rio Branco boss does not have any fitness worries at all coming into this match.
In this match, Vitoria can and should get a lot of shots on goal and make them count.
At the same time, Rio Branco could well find it tough finding the net themselves but we do fancy them converting at least once here.
We’re therefore anticipating a fairly comfortable 3-1 margin for Vitoria when all’s said and done.
