Oeste vs Portuguesa
Oeste Futebol Clube is on the edge between relegation and survival, as the Red-Blacks are currently on 17th position in Campeonato Brasileiro Serie B, level on points with the sixteenth team in the standings (Associacao Desportiva Recreativa e Cultural Icasa).
In the matter of fact, the current form of this team is not so encouraging, as the hosts managed to win only two points from their last five games in this league and not a single point from the previous two games at “Estadio Municipal dos Amaros” (Oeste Futebol Clube – Atletico Clube Goianiense 1-2 on 11.10.2014 ; Oeste Futebol Clube – America Futebol Clube 1-3 on 22.10.2014).
On the other hand, it should be noted, that Atletico Clube Goianiense and America Futebol Clube are among the best-performing teams in Campeonato Brasileiro Serie B, while now the Red-Blacks will have probably the easiest test until the end of the season in this league.
What I mean ?!
It was a really difficult season for Associacao Portuguesa de Desportos and despite their efforts, the visitors already lost all their chances to keep their place in Campeonato Brasileiro Serie B for the next season.
Vagner Benazzi, who was the fifth manager of Associacao Portuguesa de Desportos since the beginning of 2014, resign after the home defeat against Associacao Atletica Ponte Preta on Oct. 18 (Associacao Portuguesa de Desportos - Associacao Atletica Ponte Preta 0-3 on 18.10.2014) and it is obvious, that the players already lost their faith and motivation, as this team lost its last match at “Estadio de Caninde” against a team, that is still involved in the relegation fight (Associacao Portuguesa de Desportos - Associacao Desportiva Recreativa e Cultural Icasa 1-2 on 25.10.2014).
The hosts might not be in their best shape in this moment, but it should be noted, that they managed to win five of their previous eight games at “Estadio Municipal dos Amaros” against teams, that are currently in the bottom half of the standings in this league (5-2-1 12-8) and what is even more important – the motivation will definitely be on their side.
In the matter of fact, the visitors managed to win points in half of their last eight away games, but it happened in a moment, when this team still had chances to avoid relegation.
Oeste Futebol Clube took a 1-0 victory in the last match between these two teams at “Estadio Municipal dos Amaros” in March (Oeste Futebol Clube - Associacao Portuguesa de Desportos 1-0 on 19.03.2014), followed by a goalless draw at “Estadio de Caninde” on July 30 (Associacao Portuguesa de Desportos - Oeste Futebol Clube 0-0 on 30.07.2014).
