Cuiaba to Win

It’s hard to offer any predictions at the very start of a new season, but Brazilian teams have played regional championships over the past couple of months, so we have some idea of how they will look in the first round. With that in mind, our prediction is for Cuiaba to win their first game since they’ve been great in Campeonato Mato-Grossense and they’ve won this competition. Furthermore, Cuiaba has beaten Juventude at home last season in Serie B, so we don’t see why that can’t happen again.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

Both head-to-head matches between Cuiaba and Juventude last season have gone under 2.5 total g0als, so we expect a similar match in the first round of Serie A. In addition to this, both teams are newly promoted and they will likely enter the game cautiously to ensure a positive first impression. Also, Cuiaba has gone under 2.5 total goals in three of their last five games in regional competitions, while the same has happened in two of the last five Juventude matches.

Both Teams to Score – No

Since we expect this to be a low-scoring game, we also don’t think that both teams will score. Last season’s duel between these two teams in Cuiaba ended 1-0, so we can expect something similar this season as well. That being said, both teams have scored in three of the last five Cuiaba matches, while the same is true for four of the last five Juventude matches. Despite this, we don’t expect both teams to score in this game.

Cuiaba vs Juventude preview: The former Serie B derby in the first round

After gaining promotion to Serie A, Cuiaba and Juventude will meet once again in the first round of the Brazilian top-flight. So, let’s take a closer look at both teams and what we can expect from their duel:

Cuiaba

The team from the capital city of Mato Grosso will play in the top-tier Brazilian league for the first time in their short history since the club was only founded back in 2001. Cuiaba finished the last season in Serie B in 4th place with the same number of points as their first opponent in the new season. The team enters the season after winning the regional Campeonato Mato-Grossense and with four wins and a draw in their last five matches in this competition. Furthermore, the team has a clean bill of health at the moment.

Juventude

Unlike their rivals in the first round, Juventude played in the Serie A several times in their history and they’ve even won the Brazilian Cup in 1999 and competed in the Copa Libertadores the following season. Juventude finished Serie B in 3rd place thanks to a better goal difference than Cuiaba. The team has reached the semi-finals of the regional Campeonato Gaucho, but they’ve lost to Internacional 4-2 on aggregate. Juventude doesn’t have any injury problems ahead of the start of the Brazilian league.
