Match preview

2021 Brazil Serie A round 9, Cuiaba will play against with Atletico Mineiro home. The first season in the top flight has been a real learning experience for Cuiaba, which they hope will last longer than one campaign. Manager Luiz Fernando Iubel has seen his side fight hard in their opening six matches, losing only twice so far, once by a single goal and last week, trailing by one goal until injury time. They have played in some tight matches so far but have not been able to create many scoring opportunities, failing to fire more than four shots on target in any single match to this point. When you are being dominated like they are, and you struggle to get many shots on goal, it should come as no surprise that this team have failed to win a top-flight match to this point. There are still plenty of games to be played, however, and Dourado do have the luxury of playing the fewest matches among Serie A sides, and they are only three points away from clearing the relegation zone, so there is still a lot of time for them to make up some ground.

Atletico Mineiro put an end to their three-match losing run earlier this week with an impressive offensive display, scoring four goals against a side that had only conceded three times before that match in Atletico Goianiense. The victory not only moved Cuca's team back into the top five in the league table, but it was also their highest goal tally of this domestic campaign, failing to score more than once in any of their previous seven Brasileiro games before Thursday. Perhaps the message from the veteran Brazilian manager moving forward should be to put the match out of reach early on, as his side have been defeated twice on injury-time goals and conceded once with 10 minutes remaining in a game that they were leading. The other troubling thing about some of those results is that they came against beatable sides, drawing Chapecoense, who are second from the bottom, and then losing to Ceara, who are in the bottom half of the table. As they get set to play two of their next three games against sides near the bottom of the Serie A standings (Cuiaba and America Mineiro), perhaps those previous results will serve as a warning that they cannot take any team in this league for granted.
