Goias and Cuiaba will be desperate for points on Sunday, as both are very eager to escape their current disappointing position. The question is, whether either team has the guts to go all-out pursuing an important win, or a cautious draw is on the cards instead? Having never shared a spot in the Serie A before, this is the first time Goias comes up against Cuiaba in this context.

Since Goias have racked up one more point than Cuiaba during this Serie A season, they currently occupy number 17 in the table. The latter, on the other hand, find themselves ranked as number 18.

Going into their upcoming encounter on Sunday, Cuiaba are looking to finish the day ahead of Goias in the Serie A standings.

Goias only average a modest one goals per game in their last ten matches in this tournament, in which they scored ten goals. They also conceded ten for an average of one per game. They kept their opponents from scoring two times.

Cuiaba scored seven goals, conceded 14 and kept their opponents from scoring two times in ten matches.
