Bangu vs Tigres do Brasil by Sors
Bangu were defeated in the visit to Flamengo in the last round (1-2), but this was first loss for this team in five games in March and now the hosts are back at home, where they will seek third consecutive win after those against Boavista RJ (4-2) and Barra Mansa (2-1).
Importance of this match for the home team is obvious.Bangu is three points behind the seventh team in the standings (Volta Redonda), but the hosts have far easier program in the last three rounds, with three home matches against three teams from the lower part of the league table: Tigres RJ, Cabofriense and Resende.
I forgot to mention, that the seventh position in Campeonato Carioca provides a place in Campeonato Brasileiro Serie D this season and this is actually one of the aims for teams like Bangu.
Tigres RJ, on the other side, is new team in this tournament, whose main goal is to finish the campaign outside the relegation zone.
In the point of fact, the guests won two surprising points in the last two visits to Fluminense (1-1) and Volta Redonda (1-1), but their overall performance so far this season has been rather mediocre: only one win in the previous twelve rounds (1-6-5 7/18).
The hosts have a slight advantage in terms of the individual qualities of the players and experience and the home court advantage is also on their side.
