Match preview

2020 Brazil Serie A round 10, Bragantino will play against with Cuiaba home. After a goalless draw at home to modest Ceara last Thursday - having had nearly two-thirds of possession - Bragantino got back to winning ways at the weekend, with a 2-1 win at slumbering giants Sao Paulo. That hard-earned victory should serve to continue Braga's building momentum, heading into a fortnight when they will face second-placed Athletico Paranaense and then return to Copa Sudamericana action - meeting Colombia's America de Cali in the last 16. First, though, Mauricio Barbieri's side entertain lowly Cuiaba fresh from a comeback win at the iconic Morumbi - the latest of several successes against traditional giants of the Brazilian game. Clearly enjoying their role as provincial upstarts, Bragantino went behind to Emiliano Rigoni's first-half strike for the hosts, but replied with interest after the break, as Alerrando and Artur provided an 'AA' recovery service. With the addition of those two latest goals, the 2019 Serie B champions' healthy haul of 19 is the best return of any top-flight team so far, as they average over two goals per game despite their top scorer Ytalo having netted just four times to date. That indicates a team capable of scoring from all quarters, with any of Barbieri's charges posing a danger to the opponents' goal. In fact, Braga already have 11 different goalscorers from their nine opening games - so will be confident of adding more on Wednesday.

Founded as a professional outfit just 20 years ago, Cuiaba were only promoted to Serie B in 2019, before gaining a place in the top tier of the Campeonato Brasileiro for the first time this season. The only team from the central state of Mato Grosso to reach the elite since 1986 have endured a steep learning curve so far, as they sit near the bottom of the early-season standings. In all, the Dourado have tallied only four points and four goals from their first nine fixtures, with only their relatively solid defensive record keeping them away from the foot of the table. Sunday's 1-0 defeat at home to title contenders Atletico Mineiro was certainly no disgrace for Luiz Fernando Iubel's side, though it was their second successive loss in the space of three days. Iubel has been unable to inspire his men to create many scoring opportunities - failing to rack up more than four shots on target in any of their league matches to date - but they did have the lion's share of possession last time out; unfortunately conceding to Atletico's only shot on target. With still plenty of time to make up lost ground, Cuiaba will nonetheless be keen to get their bandwagon rolling soon, but upcoming clashes with Ceara and Chapecoense might prove more realistic targets than this midweek clash with high-flying opposition.
