Serie B at Unibet

Criciuma Prediction – Can Criciuma pull off desperate win?

Third from bottom club, Criciuma head into this crucial Tuesday night clash against Parana with a renewed sense of optimism having secured a vital three points with a 2-0 home win over fellow strugglers, Londrina, as well as picking up a useful and important point in a 1-1 draw away at Serie B league leaders, Bragantino.

That point against the league leaders will have felt like a win for Criciuma and it’ll certainly serve as a timely boost ahead of Tuesday night’s fixture, and although the hosts have lost 4 of their last 9 matches overall in the Brazilian second tier, they have reason to be fairly confident on home turf at their Estádio Heriberto Hülse.

3 of these recent 4 defeats were inflicted upon Criciuma whilst on their travels, but a home record of 6-7-5 18/15 includes just 2 defeats out of their last 9 matches on home turf and recent wins over Oeste, Botafogo and Londrina should give them a further boost.

Midfielders Foghuino and Costa (3 goals apiece) along with forward Gamalho (9 goals) are the hosts’ main goal threats.


Criciuma vs Parana Over 2.5 goals

Parana Prediction – Can Parana keep fading hopes of promotion alive?

If they’re to do so, Parana will have to go on the front foot from the first whistle against Criciuma as they’re 6 points adrift of 4th placed Atletico GO but a crucial 14 goals behind in terms of goal difference – and that’s if Atletico GO lose their last 2 league matches!

Parana’s hopes of achieving a top four finish and promotion to Serie A seem to be all but over, especially as they failed to beat Atletico GO in their recent clash with Parana going down to a 1-0 defeat away from home.

The visitors face another away trip this Tuesday night but instead come up against a team desperately fighting against relegation in the shape of Criciuma, and they too will be searching for all three points here this evening.

This could therefore leave the hosts exposed at the back, and although Parana have lost 3 of their last 4 matches away from home, the likes of midfielder Pedro (4 goals) and striker Jenison (8 goals) may well fancy their chances of notching in this one.


Key-Facts – Criciuma vs Parana

  • Criciuma have lost just 2 of their last 9 matches at home in Serie B
  • Parana have lost 3 of their last 4 matches away from home in Serie B
  • 4 of the last 5 meetings between these two sides have seen both teams score


Betting Tips Verdict

Both teams therefore have incentive to be positive here and we could see both teams score as a result at great odds.
