5th spot in the Serie B table for CRB at present, a good campaign. The home team supporters pray for more entertainment as 7th-placed Guarani visit Estádio Universitário da UFAL.

Insights:
  • CRB have played more matches over 2,5 goals home than away.
  • Guarani have the most scored goals in the second half (23) in Serie B

Both teams have had ample time to rest since their previous exertion in an official match. Let's have faith in that this will be an energetic game!

These teams have little in common geographically as Guarani have to travel 2400 kilometers to reach their opponents. The trip home will be especially long if the match ends in defeat.

CRB form and stats

The total Serie B statistics playing at home this season for CRB are 5-7-2 (wins-draws-losses).

CRB are anxiously hoping for a goal as it's been 203 minutes since the last one in league fixtures. (Scored by Yago (own goal)).

No payout for CRB in their previous match, an away game at Botafogo that ended in defeat 0-2. Guilherme Romão was "man of the match" with a rating of 7.03 out of 10. The defender Romão won 9 of 13 duels.

Preceding that game was the home draw versus CSA that ended 0-0.

The bookmakers consider this a fairly even contest. One could say only the home advantage separates the teams. It could be relevant to look at how CRB have performed in matches similar to this (as small favourites). Our database has found ten matches with the results: Won four, drawn four and lost two.

The manager A. Aal will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to Vila Nova in only three days.

The CRB fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 18 in 14 matches. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 2 of these goals has been scored in their last three home matches. From these home matches, CRB have conceded only 13 goals.
