Criciuma vs Boa Esporte – Brazilian Serie B: Criciúma is not able to relax just yet…
Despite the speech that their objective was finishing on the upper half of the table, they are still worried about the possibility of being relegated.
Since they lost their chances to fight for the play-offs, the team has broken down and saw their situation get worse in Serie B.
The team hasn’t won for 5 matches, having lost 4 out of those 5 matches.
The lack of focus on the tactical aspect was one of the clear problems presented on the last rounds.
However, since the fans and the board’s expectations are high, they are expecting to adopt a different posture for this match.
Commiting themselves tactically, playing with maximum intensity and will on both ends, might ensure their stay in the Serie B for the next season.
The manager Beto Campos has practically all of his best players available. The core of the team that played on the duel against Goiás should be maintained.
Boa Esporte’s fate continues and the worries on this final stretch of the Serie B have continued too.
The team is able to get some good performances, but they are too wasteful with their finishing and they waste points that should be gained. Winless on the last 7 matches, the threat of relegation is real.
When the team is able to be more efficient on the pitch, the tactical aspect fails.
As hosts, they seem to play under even more pressure, but they are hoping they’ll be able to take better advantage of playing at home instead of worrying about the pressure they’re under.
Keeping a strong rhythm and trusting that their attack will be able to make a difference is Boa’s hope to try and surprise here. The team’s numbers playing as visitors are scary.
The manager Nedo Xavier will have his core of players at his disposal.
Criciuma vs Boa Esporte – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Criciúma needs to win to avoid the increase of the chances of them being relegated. Boa hopes to be effective with the chances they’ll create in order to get closer to ensuring they will stay up.
I like Boa’s team performances, but they have several weaknesses and playing with a low confidence, those difficulties tend to be even harder to overcome.
Dealing better with the pressure, I see a slight favouritism for Criciúma in this duel.
