Reason For Goias vs CSA Betting Tips
Friday’s Brazilian Serie B action features a clash between Goias and CSA. With both sides in strong shape, a close game is expected to be in order.
As good a form as they’re in, hosts Goias still have plenty of work to do in order to fully recover from their terrible start to the season which saw them take just 2 points from 7 matches. Boss Ney Franco has done an excellent job since coming in and has moved the hosts to within touching distance of the promotion spots, currently 3 points adrift, and those that take to the field on Friday will be desperate to move closer to them with a good performance.
Goias have plenty of momentum behind them, having won 7 of their last 10 outings overall. A 1-0 defeat at struggling Brasil de Pelotas was something of a damper for Verdao however, but having lost just 1 of their last 6 games as hosts, winning 4 times in the process, confidence should remain high in home ranks ahead of kick off.
Meanwhile, CSA’s fairytale season is showing no signs of stopping anytime soon. The visitors have risen from the depths of the fourth tier in recent years and if they can maintain their current performance levels, they could well find themselves a top flight club at the end of the year.
CSA are unbeaten in an impressive 10 matches now and whilst 7 of said outings have ended in draws, the regularity with which the side take points currently has them standing 2nd in the table with 34 points from 19 outings. A trip to face Goias is never an easy task but Marcelo Cabo’s men look well prepared for the task at hand and having lost just 3 of their 19 matches all season, they’re more than capable of matching their in-form opponents.
Ultimately, with both teams in good shape and proving rather difficult to beat, attention is immediately drawn towards backing the draw; as is this case with almost all of CSA’s fixtures. The visitors may not play the most magnificent football in the division but few can doubt the results of their methods and they certainly won’t roll over for Goias.
4 of CSA’s last 5 away matches have ended all square and with Goias rarely defeated on their own patch, backing each side to take a point looks an excellent way to play. A tight game of few chances is also expected to be on the cards, given the significance the match could have come the end of the season and we think the 90 minutes will pass without a goal being scored.
