Vitoria vs Figueirense Predictions

This is a massive relegation six pointer and one that both sides will have to view as a ‘must win game’. Figueirense are in a perilous position of being 5 points from safety with only 3 games to go but the side just above the dotted line is Vitoria so they can potentially cut that deficit to 2 points here, although they will also know defeat will see them relegated to Serie B. Both sides will be preying Internacional drop points in their game on Monday and Vitoria will be desperate to really put the pressure on them with 3 points here.

Given both teams need to win, we should see a relatively attacking game and certainly at some point the visitors will have to throw caution to the wind, which should really open things up. Vitoria have been really positive in recent weeks too and that has served up some high-scoring contests. Both teams have scored twice or more in all of their last 3 league matches and both teams have netted in 66% of their fixtures this season so they’ve been scoring goals but struggling to keep them out.

Their record of 1.29 goals scored per game is the joint best in the bottom half of the division and they boast a couple of dangerous forwards in the shape of Marinho and Kieza, who are both capable of causing the visitors problems here. Figueirense haven’t been anywhere near as prolific but they look set to match Vitoria’s 4-3-3 here and they have little choice but to commit some bodies forward and look to score goals.

That isn’t really their forte though and a miserable away record that has seen them lose 71% of their matches on the road and collect just 0.41 points per game on their travels, points strongly towards a home win being the most likely outcome. Vitoria have played quite well in their last three matches and they’ve been scoring goals against better sides than Figueirense, so backing Vitoria to win & over 2.5 goals at 7/4 looks to offer good value here.
