Football Bet of the Day: Slow night in Brazil

CSA and Goias could struggle for goals in Brazilian Serie B this evening, reckons Tobias Gourlay

CSA v Goias
Wednesday 23:00

In Iceland last night, Fylkir upset the odds to land their customary home win over KA and make us winners too. The hosts went 2-0 up and hung on to eventually come through 2-1.

We’re celebrating in Brazil tonight. Thirteenth-placed CSA (W3-D2-L4) are hosting eighth-placed Goias (W4-D4-L2) in Serie B with neither side looking especially prolific at the moment.

Despite their lofty position in the table, CSA have scored only four times across their first five home games of the campaign. At the other end, they’ve conceded just three goals. Three of the five matches have been goalless at the break, which will be an odds-against shot for today’s game.

Goias go nowhere fast. Home and away, all of their last four Serie B matches have been 0-0 at half-time. On the road this term, 3/5 have produced no first-half goals, which is our bet on this one.
