Vitória and Sport Recife face at Estádio Manoel Barradas, in a match for the 27th round of the Serie A. In the last league head‑to‑head, played in 18‑06‑2017, Vitória got an away win by (1‑3). The recent head‑to‑head record favours the home team, since they have a record of 5 wins and 2 losses in the last 7 matches. Although this is a match between 11th and 17th of the league table, it’s actually a match between the 20th best in home matches and the 17th best in away matches.

Analysis of Vitória

After 9 wins, 5 draws and 12 losses, the home team is in the 11th position, havinf won 32 points so far. In the last match, they have won in an away match against Botafogo by (2‑3), after in the previous match they have won (1‑3) an away match against Atlético Mineiro. Interestingly enough, this is a team that has had better results in away matches than at home, since they have won 23 points in away matches and only 9 at their stadium. In the last 10 home league matches Vitória has a record of 1 win, 3 draws and 6 losses, so they have won 6 points out of 30 possible. In their home league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 0‑0 (5 out of 13 matches). Their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 8 of the last 10 matches for this competition. They have conceded the first goal in 11 of their 26 matches for this competition, and have never been able to turn the score around.

Vitória is going through a good moment in the Brazilian Championship and seems to open a safe distance from the relegation zone. Now the team comes from two consecutive wins, both away from home, and registers only one defeat in the last six rounds. One of the main responsible for the team's poor performance so far is the defensive sector, since it is the most leaked at home. Nevertheless, the offensive sector has also collaborated with the bad results, being the second less efficient in home matches, next to Atletico Goaniense and Coritiba. The home team does not have a good average of ball possession and this is explained by the high rate of wrong passes. One of the highlights of the team is striker Neilton.

Confirmed Lineup: Caíque, Ramon, Caique Sá, Wallace, Juninho, Yago, Uillian Correia, Fillipe Soutto, Neilton, S. Tréllez, David.
Coach: Vágner Mancini.

Analysis of Sport Recife

The away team is currently in the 17th position of the league, with 30 points won, after 8 wins, 6 draws and 12 losses. In the penultimate match, they tied in a home match against Vasco da Gama, by (1‑1). In the last match, they lost in an away match against São Paulo, by (1‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, since they have won 10 points in away matches and 20 points at their stadium, with 19 goals scored and 13 goals conceded at home, against 12 goals scored and 25 conceded in away matches. In the last 10 away league matches Sport Recife has a record of 3 wins, 1 draw and 6 losses, so they have won 10 points out of 30 possible.

In this competition, they have a sequence of 5 losses in the last away matches. In their away league matches the most frequent result at half‑time was the 1‑0 (5 out of 13 matches). Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. In 26 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 16 times and have only turned the score around in 1. In the last 13 away matches for this competition there is 1 period that stands out: they have scored 6 of their 12 goals between minutes (76'‑90').

Sport is not making a good campaign throughout the Brazilian Championship, and now has one of its most complicated moments, since it comes from nine rounds without winning, having accumulated six defeats in that period. In the last seven matches, the team scored just one goal, which shows major problems in the offensive sector. As away team, Sport owns the third worst campaign of the competition, a condition in which it has the most leaked defense, having conceded ten goals in the last four clashes away from  home, while not scoring a single goal during that period. For this match, the coach will have two important absences: Sander and Rithely.

Confirmed Lineup: Magrão, Ronaldo Alves, Raul Prata, O. Henríquez, E. Mena, Diego Souza, Patrick, Anselmo, Wesley, André, Osvaldo.
Coach: Vanderlei Luxemburgo.

Betting suggestion:

This clash tends to be one of the most balanced of this round of the Brazilian Championship, since it has two medium teams, which have not been doing good campaigns throughout the competition, being separated by only two points in the qualifying table. 
The home team bets a lot on long balls and has managed to create many opportunities, but has difficulty maintaining ball possession, while its defense has made many individual mistakes. 
Sport, meanwhile, has been attacking a lot by the sides and betting on long-distance kicks, while its defense shows strength in tackles, but fails in the coverage of the sides. 
Thus, we expect a very balanced game, the draw being a good betting option, but with favoritism for the home team.
