Cruzeiro form and stats

The home fans saw their team lose the first Serie B game of the season here at Estádio Governador Magalhães Pinto. Last season these fans witnessed 3 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss from Cruzeiro's 5 home games. It's trouble wherever Cruzeiro are playing these days as they have suffered four straight defeats now, regardless of arena. They really need to get back to winning ways.

The fans are hoping that Cruzeiro will strike back in this match, putting things right after the 0-1 away loss in the Copa do Brasil game against Juazeirense (after extra-time, 3-2 on penalties).

Preceding that match was the home Serie B game against CRB that was lost 3-4.

The hosts are modest favourites in this match, with the bookmakers estimating the chance of a home win at about 50% +- five percent. It's interesting to look at how Cruzeiro have performed under similar circumstances, so here are some numbers: When modest favourites like this (we found nine games) they have won one time, drawn five and lost three.

Cruzeiro are traveling soon after this match as the Serie B match at Ponte Preta awaits in four days.

Cruzeiro has scored 3 goals so far and conceded 4 goals from 1 home game. These are numbers from the league only.

Goiás form and stats

The visitors settled for one point in their first Serie B away game of the season. During their previous season 5 away games resulted in 1 win, 2 draws and 2 defeats. It's three draws from Goiás's last three away games, a decent catch but one that could be so much better.

Did you know that the longest clean sheet streak is 1816 minutes? This record is held by Mazaropi when he played in Vasco da Gama. Goiás goalkeeper Tadeu Antonio Ferreira is eager to challenge this, with his 180 minutes of keeping balls out from the net.

Alef Manga and Bruno Mezenga scored in Goiás's previous match, the home game against Confiança that ended 2-0. Midfield player Alef Manga was the top player of the team with a match rating of 7.42/10. Manga scored one goal and hit one key pass.

A 0-0 draw at Sampaio Correa's stadium before that.

We have checked recent matches where Goiás have had similar odds to win. Win-draw-lose statistics from those four games were one victory, one draw and two defeats.

A new game in only three days for Goiás, the Serie B home match versus CRB. Busy days.
