Goiás vs CSA Betting Tip and Prediction
- Updated: 10th August 2018
Goiás vs CSA – Brazilian Serie B : On a match of the 20th round of the Brazilian Serie B
the first one of the 2nd half of the season
Goiás that is fighting to get into the top 4 hosts CSA that is in 2nd place of the competition, with this match being worth the famous 6 points.
Goiás is coming off a loss, losing by 1-0 in Pelotas against Brasil de Pelotas and with that, they’ve lost the opportunity of reaching the top 4 before the end of the 1st half of the season.
The home side occupies the 10th place with 27 points conquered, 3 points behind the first team inside the relegation zone.
Goiás haven’t been good at home, winning 4, drawing 2 and losing 4 of the matches they’ve played at home, dropping a lot of points, and that has been stopping them from occupying a better position on the league table.
For this match, all their main players are available, with the midfielder Giovani that has been standing out being fit to play.
CSA is coming off a slim victory, and conquered on the final minutes against Juventude, but that gave 3 very important points for the team that continues their chase to Fortaleza, occupying he 2nd place with 34 points, 3 points behind the leaders.
The team has a good campaign away from home, getting 16 points as visitors, having only 1 loss away from the Rei Pelé Stadium.
The team is unbeaten on the last 10 matches, having 3 victories and 7 draws, being a team that tends to get a lot of draws.
Jhon Cley is registered and reinforces CSA’s team. Neto Berola is another reinforcement that is not registered yet but will probably be until the start of this match.
This is a famous 6-points match, with Goiás being one of the disappointments so far,
because they have a roster to be fiercely fighting and be inside the top 4, not occupying the position they currently occupy,
and on the other side we have a team that surprised everyone. However, due to the strong investment made on experienced players, the team showed that they’ve won the Serie C last year and came wanting the immediate promotion to the Serie A.
Goiás, as I’ve mentioned, is a quality team that has been having some slip-ups, but they don’t lose their playstyle of offensive football. However, they struggle defensively,
and their numbers show that they score with the same pace they concede, since they have 24 goals scored and 25 goals conceded.
As for CSA, they have been very strong away from home, hardly failing to score, since on the last 9 matches played away from home, they only failed to score on 2 occasions,
which is a clear sign of the team’s quality away from home, and as I’ve mentioned in other of CSA’s matches, I believe that the experience of the players really counts not to resent themselves on the away matches.
Goiás vs CSA – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I believe on a balanced match but with chances for both sides. Goiás needs to win to reduce that disadvantage to the top 4, and CSA to keep fighting for the leadership and not really leave the top 4,
and with that, I see value on the goals, since these are two quality teams, with good players and all the conditions to score, and with that, an “Over” line is very likely to be surpassed in this match.
