Criciuma vs Nautico – Brazilian Serie B: Criciúma is coming off a terrible loss away from home…
Against last place ABC 3-1, where the team started winning but then conceded 3 goals in the 2nd half to eventually lose.
Even with the risk being very low, the team is only 6 points above the relegation zone and are still at risk, mathematically.
As for Náutico they are relegated, after the 2-1 loss to Londrina at home, no longer having a chance to escape, which means they will return to the Serie C in 2018, after many years.
For the visitors, this is a match where they’ll play just for pride, since the team no longer has any chance and is likely starting to prepare for next season.
As for the hosts, they really need a positive result to mathematically ensure they avoid relegation,
so I believe in an open match from both teams, Náutico because they already have nothing to play for and Criciúma because they are a very attacking team who needs to win.
Criciuma vs Nautico – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I’m betting on a minimum of 2 goals for the home side, since Náutico has always been able to score recently and I don’t expect that they’ll just be happy with losing this.
I expect Náutico to come here to try and show their value and look to score without focusing much on defence.
