CRB form and stats

CRB have collected 12 points from their Serie B home games so far after 3-3-1. With three straight defeats the pressure is piling up on CRB to get some points in this home game.

CRB's previous game was also a home match, the defeat 0-1 versus Chapecoense (placed 2nd). Prior to that, an away loss at Guarani.

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

The manager M. Ribeiro Cabo will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to Figueirense in only four days.

CRB are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 9 goals in 7 games. CRB are not conceding a lot of goals here at Estádio Rei Pelé in the league, averaging less than one per game. The total is 6 from 7 matches.
