Hamburgo vs Caxias do Sul by Sors
Novo Hamburgo and Caxias do Sul have different aims in the last round of the regular season in Campeonato Gaucho.
The hosts are ninth in the standings, with eighteen points and still with good chances to qualify for the upcoming playoffs, given the fact that Passo Fundo (8th position and twenty points) have tough visit to Gremio in this round.
Novo Hamburgo is 3-2-2 7/6 in seven games on this stadium in 2015, as those two defeats came against teams from top 8 like Cruziero PA (1-2) and Gremio (0-1).
Fred (def. / 2 goals) received red card in the visit to Internacional in the last round (0-1) and will miss this match for the home team, but important midfielder Magrao returns to the squad after injury.
The guests won 1-0 at home against Sao Jose in the last round, but this was first victory for Caxias do Sul in the last ten games, with two draws and seven lost games in this period (1-2-7 3/12).
Caxias do Sul won only three points from the previous seven away games in this tournament (0-3-4 4/10) and I seriously doubt in the ability of this team to take good result from this visit to Novo Hamburgo.
Novo Hamburgo is a better team than Caxias do Sul and needless to say that home court advantage in very important factor in this rivalry.
