Sampaio Correa vs Goias Prediction & Betting tips
Sampaio Corrêa and Goiás face in Estádio Governador João Castelo Ribeiro Gonçalves, in a match for the 16th round of Serie B. In the last 3 years there is only record of 2 direct confrontations between these two teams: one on 22-11-2016 , which ended in a victory of Goiás by (2-1), and another more recent on 17-08-2016, which ended in a draw by (0-0). The condition home / away deserves particular attention, because despite this being a match between 17th and 10th of the league table, it is actually a match between the 8th ranked in home games and the 8th as a visitor.
After 4 wins, 4 draws and 7 losses, the home team is currently in the 17 th position, with 15 points won. In their last match, they tied with Juventude at home (0-0), after in the previous match they lost (1-0), in a match against CSA. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, since it has won 11 points in away matches, with 4 goals scored and 10 conceded, against 11 points and scored 8 goals. In the last 8 home league matches Sampaio Corrêa has a record of 3 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses, so they have won 12 points out of 24 possible. Defensive consistency has not been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In their home matches there is a tendency for few goals, since 6 of the last 8 matches for this competition have ended with Under 2,5 goals. In 15 matches in this tournament, he suffered the first goal 8 times and never got the comeback. There are 2 periods in highlight in the last 20 home matches for all competitions: he suffered 5 of his 11 goals between the minutes (76′-90 ‘) and 4 of his 11 between (0′-15’).
The Sampaio Corrêa is a club that has already conquered the B Series of the Brazilian Championship once throughout its history, a title won in 1972. This year, the team was champion of the Northeast Cup, winning 1×0 at the Bay in the grand finale In Serie B of the Brazilian Championship, the team has been trying to move away from the last positions, since it is two points behind the first team outside the relegation zone. In the last six games that Sampaio Corrêa played at home, in three he suffered goals. We believe that in this confrontation, despite playing at home, Sampaio Corrêa will have defensive difficulties against a strong opponent, who comes at a good time and scores goals regularly, even when playing as a visitor, which again should happen.
The away team is currently in the 10 th position of the league, with 21 points won, after 6 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses. In the penultimate match, they won in an away match against Avaí, by (0-1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Criciuma, by (2-1). This is a team little affected by the house factor, since it conquered similar results at home and abroad. For the championship, Goiás won 10 points out of 21 possible points, after 3 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses in the last 7 home matches. In their home league matches the most frequent result at half-time was the 0-1 (3 out of 7 matches). They have not been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 9 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored frequently, since they have scored at least one goal in each of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 15 matches in this competition, they only got 3 comebacks in the 10 matches in which they suffered the first goal.
Goiás is a club that has twice conquered the title of the Brazilian Serie B Championship, in 1999 and 2012. In this season of 2018, the Goiás conquered the Goiano Championship title and in the Brazilian Championship of the B Series it comes in a good moment, climbing the table to win four victories and a draw in the last five days. His performance as a visitor has also been positive, since he won nine of the last fifteen points played away from home, that is, he won three of the last five games as a visitor. We believe that Goiás will manage to make a good match against Sampaio Corrêa, who does not live a good moment in form.
