After not having started the competition in a desired way Nova Iguaçu figures in the penultimate position. Recalling that in its only home game for Carioca, despite not having passed the draw in 1-1 against Cabofriense, it was superior both in possession of the ball and in the finalizations, that is, it could have come out with a win. For this match the team should try to erase the defeat suffered against Vasco in its last match with a victory, as the squad aims to get far in the competition. It is worth remembering that among the teams of less expression, Nova Iguaçu was the one that made a better campaign last year. Already the highlight and hopes of goals are due to the vice-top scorer of 2017, that is, the forward Adriano, ex-Vasco. Recalling that the goals of the team are divided between Adriano, also Bruno Smith and Murilo Henrique, each with a goal scored.

With a campaign similar to its opponent of this duel the team is in the last position, getting behind Nova Iguaçu because of a negative balance of goals scored. In its last clash managed to add a draw away from home by 2-2 against Bangu in a match of four goals. Recalling that despite the draw, was much lower in terms of possession of the ball and also in the finalizations. For this match, Volta Redonda comes under pressure for victories like Nova Iguaçu that also has not yet won. Highlight for the main hiring of the team this year, namely the striker Anselmo, former Fortaleza. The players who deserve attention are defender Daniel Felipe and striker André Parente, both with a goal scored each.

Betting suggestion:

For this match we are talking about teams that come under pressure and still seeking their first victory in the competition, that is, a duel is well disputed and with more offensive moments. It is worth remembering that although Nova Iguaçu play in front of its fans, it arrives presenting the most leaked defensive sector, although it also scored its goals. Volta Redonda has not been offensive yet, but it is also among the teams that suffered the most goals so far. In this way, facing the facts and in front of teams that need the result, opting for goals in this match should be a good option.
