The hosts had problems almost through their entire campaign in this tournament, but there is an obvious upswing in the form of this team since the beginning of the month, as Oeste won seven points from its previous three games in March against Agua Santa (1-0/home), Mogi Mirim (0-0/away) and Red Bull Brasil last Saturday (3-2/away).
In the matter of fact, this team played well in most of its previous four matches in Itapolis: the hosts lost 1-2 against Rio Claro after a goal in the 89th minute of that game, but won three points against Ponte Preta (3-1) and Santa Agua (1-0) and one point against one of the best teams in the tournament (Palmeiras) on Feb. 11 (0-0).
Ligger (d / 5+0) is out due to injury, but the guests have much more serious problems with injured players in Maguinho (d / 9+1), Oliveira (d / 5+0), Rogerinho (m / 3+0), Julio Cesar (m / 2+0) and Jacio (m / 9+1).
Capivariano is on the last spot in group C, eight points behind Sao Paulo (2nd place) and with ten points less than Audax (1st place), which means that this team is already without chances for further progress in the tournament.
The guests are coming off two consecutive draws at home against Novorizontino (2-2) and Ponte Preta last Saturday (0-0), but their results away from home are simply awful: 2-2 in the visit to a mediocre team like Rio Claro in the opening round, followed up by four consecutive defeats against Corinthians (1-2), Agua Santa (1-4), Ituano (1-2) and Palmeiras at the beginning of the month (1-4).
Oeste is five points behind Sao Bento in the race for the second place in group A, but even if we assume that this is big difference five rounds before the end of the campaign, it doesn’t change the fact that the hosts are obviously in better form than their opponents, Oeste is team with more quality in the squad compared to Capivariano and considering all this, I think that the hosts will manage to win three points from this match.
