CSA: Relegation candidates (Recent Form: WLLWDW)
CSA are on 17th place in Brazilian Serie A with 22 points (5 wins, 7 draws, 11 losses; goal difference 14:34). They are currently in the drop zone, but being just 1 point shy of 16th Ceara (safe spot), whereas the distance to 12th Botafogo RJ (Copa Sudamericana) is 5 points at the moment. Therefore, CSA can think about improving their position in the table. The team is in average shape – 2 wins, 1 draw, 2 losses in last 5 league matches. CSA take on Internacional on Thursday in the next league fixture. CSA have collected 16 points in 12 home games to date (4 wins, 4 draws, 4 defeats; goal difference 10:13).
Internacional: Winless in last 3 games (Recent Form: WLLWDW)
Internacional sit on 6th position in the standings with 38 points (11 wins, 5 draws, 7 defeats; goal difference 29:22). They are now on a Copa Libertadores qualification spot, having 1 point of advantage over 7th Bahia (Copa Sudamericana), whereas Internacional are 4 points short of 4th Corinthians (Copa Libertadores). Their recent form is fine – 2 wins, 2 draws, 1 defeat in last 5 games in Serie A, but they are winless in last 3. In the meantime, they suffered from a defeat against Athletico-PR in Copa do Brasil. Now it’s time for an away encounter. Internacional have collected 8 points in 11 matches on the road (2 wins, 2 draws, 7 losses; goal difference 9:15).
THE BETTING VERDICT:
Summing up, it looks like this might be an interesting clash with a couple of goals. Internacional should be aiming for a win, but CSA are in need of points and they’ll be looking for a positive result in front of their fans as well so perhaps it may be an open match.
