Friburguense form and stats

Last season, Friburguense's league statistics were 3 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss, resulting in a 1st position in the Carioca 1. Over these six matches they scored 10 goals and conceded 8. Playing at home last season Friburguense managed 1-1-1 (win-draw-lost) with 4 goals and 4 conceded. The home team are struggling everywhere these days as they haven't won a league-game, regardless of being the home or the away team, in eleven attempts.

The fans are hoping that Friburguense will strike back in this match, putting things right after the 1-2 away loss in the Carioca 2 game against Cabofriense (placed 2nd).

A Carioca 1 defeat was the result before that one, 0-1 away at Sampaio Correa RJ.

There will be little rest for Friburguense after this match as they are travelling to Americano for a Carioca 2 game in only four days.

Gonçalense form and stats

Gonçalense failed to get anything from their last game, a Carioca 2 home match vs Artsul (placed 1st) that ended with defeat 1-2.

A home win before that, celebrating 3-2 vs Campos AA.

There might be some complaints about the fixture list from the Gonçalense manager as the team has another away game coming up in only four days, this time against Duque de Caxias.

Head 2 Head

Head-to-head totals (for the last three meetings): Friburguense won three games, zero matches ended with a draw and Gonçalense has zero wins. Over 2,5 goals / under 2,5 goals: three / zero

There are 26 state football leagues in Brazil. Because of long distances in Brazil a very competitive football culture developed within each state. Therefore, Brazil remain one of the few countries who still run state championships alongside the national ones. Most of them run from January to May, outside the national season.
