Venue: Estádio Nabi Abi Chedid (17724 seats)

Season ticket holders at Estádio Nabi Abi Chedid haven’t seen too many victories this season, with Bragantino languishing in the 19th position so far. The guesting Sport Recife will be hopeful to defend their higher league position in this one.

It’s busy days for these teams as both were in action only a few days ago. There’s no rest for the wicked, or in this case; no rest for Bragantino and Sport Recife.

These teams have little in common geographically as Sport Recife have to travel 2500 kilometers to reach their opponents. The trip home will be especially long if the match ends in defeat.

Sport Recife form and stats

Three has not been a lucky number for Recife as they have been defeated three times in a row since the Bahia match.

Recife failed to get anything from their last game, a Serie A home match vs Internacional (placed 2nd) that ended with defeat 3-5. A loss against Botafogo was the result prior to that, in a home game.

A crazy, crazy match with lots of goals last time out for Recife, as mentioned above. 8 goals in that one, will this match be as much fun?

Looking at the earlier recent performances of Sport Recife when being an outsider away as they are today, we find two matches with the visitors losing zero times, drawing two and winning zero games.
