Sport Recife form and stats

The story so far in the Serie A for Sport Recife at their home stadium (Estádio Adelmar da Costa Carvalho) is 2 wins, 0 draws and 2 defeats.

An away draw last time out for Recife, facing Palmeiras in a game that ended 2-2. A defeat was the result before that one, 0-1 away at Fortaleza.

This is expected to be a close game, with Sport Recife perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Sport Recife as a small favourite), we find two games. Sport Recife has won one of these, drawn zero and lost one.

Some members of the home team might already be thinking of their next match, the Serie A game versus Corinthians in only three days. This game is also played here at Estádio Adelmar da Costa Carvalho.

The Recife fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 5 in 4 matches. 5 goals have been conceded.

Playing away, Fluminense have won 1 game, drawn 0 and suffered 3 defeats in the Serie A this season.

Fluminense won their last game, 1-0 versus Atlético GO played at home. Before that, Fluminense secured a home win against Corinthians with the score 2-1.
